I keep coming back but I am not sure why. The hours on the door don't reflect when they truly open. It says 10:30 but NO food out. Then it said 11:00 but no food out. If you go too early they don't have all...More

I ate lunch there yesterday and became physically ill later in the afternoon. Stomach pain, tried and somewhat disoriented. I was not sick before lunch. Mediocre taste and lack of attention to the food. Ice cream with freezer burn available.

I'm leery of places that have superlatives in their names. Best Buffet is certainly not the worst, but it does not live up to its name. Food is rather fresh, and the variety is decent. Better than average buffet prices.

Very Good as far as Chinese Buffets go, If you get there before the state employees destroy the chow line, you can do well. Lots of options for a carnivore like myself, I can do 3 plates and never eat rice or veggies...

This Chinese restaurant in a Tumwater shopping mall sits next to a handful of fast food options and is owned by the most delightful young Chinese couple. I've never seen it crowded or noisy which by all rights it should be given the quality of...More

Average selection of food for a Chinese buffet but the service is always good. If you're looking to have a small variety to sample then this is the place to go but don't expect to be wowed.

Once of my co-workers who is Chinese took me here for lunch, stating it was the only place in the area with authentic good Chinese food. That is probably true, but both times I have been here, my stomach has not agreed with me. I...More
