I know many people will knock chinese buffett restaurants because they do not resemble authentic chinese food. I think this rates up there for top chinese buffets in my books. I remember this place when it had different owners and a different name (Top of China). It was not all that good then. We were there for lunch and it... More

Clean, lots of room between the tables, some booths in center so you can slide in on either side not disturbing the other person. Good food variety, we ate at dinner. Kind people and quick to remove dirty dishes.

We have been going to this buffet for a few years. Since it has changed owners we have only been a couple times because they raised the price. The food is good!!

This is a good Chinese/Asian food buffet. Convenient location and a good selection of foods. the hot sour soup is especially good. request a table rather than a booth if you have mobility concerns.

After a long day helping a friend we stopped by to eat some dinner. We were starving and they have a large assortment of food everything tasted good. The service was awesome the people were very nice. The prices we're fair especially considering the wonderful salmon I ate.

This buffet is fresh, hot and has many selections. The Mongolian grill and sushi bar is also kept fresh and has an attendant on duty at all times. The staff is quick, friendly and polite. This is a repeat customer - finally rating Pearl China Buffet #1.

Used to go here every Sunday back in the early 2000's and it was very good and popular. Over the years it went downhill and just got worse and worse. Not sure how it is these days but the last time I went was in 2013 I think and it wasn't a good experience.

The previous owners of the "Top of China" just let the place go to pot. It remained closed for some time and became an eyesore. It re-opened sometime in last October and I gave the place a visit in late January. I had visited the "Top of China" a number of times over the years and was never very satisfied.... More

I use to really enjoy this buffet. I wasn't impressed with my recent visit. The food wasn't hot. Seemed stale with bad flavors. I left very dissatisfied. I won't go back.
