Overpriced but food good

I had just checked in to a nearby hotel, and was very hungry, and saw this was in walking distance. At $17 per person I thought this was a bit overpriced, particularly for the area, but I will admit the food was good (though I was pretty hungry). However I noticed a bit further down was an IHOP... read more

Liked the selection of seafood and veggie dishes. A good value and it seemed that the food was set out in small quantities and restocked often which was nice.

This place is pretty good for the amount of money you pay. It's fairly expensive, something around $30 per person but there are a ton of options for all types of food. Definitely try the Schezuan dumplings, they are always making them fresh and refilling them quickly. They're probably the best thing they have. I did not expect there to... More

The spread was varied but the food was not really that good. The crab legs and other seafood was not fresh. I thought I would taste authentic chinese food but that is not the case. The place was not also that clean and service not good.

Well if your looking for A gourmet buffet this is not it but.......... I stopped in at about 3pm and got the $9.95 lunch buffet. The food seemed fresh and I had plenty to select from. Have I had better Asian Food and have had better spreads at a Buffett. But for the location and the money this was well... More

I'm not really a "Chinese restaurant" person but honestly didn't like so much the food, the way it's served and the treatment.

I'm surprised at the other reviews not giving this restaurant better marks. It is not an exquisite or romantic buffet restaurant, but I found it to be clean and the food actually not bad at all. It has a nice selection, buffet style, of Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and some Hawaiian dishes. Pricing is reasonable. You can't expect much service for... More

Not worth the money, not that many choices. Not as fresh as other places. Pizza was good and cheesy.

Went with my family members to try out this buffet site, as there are many, many in the Bay Area. Beijing Buffet is quite close to South San Francisco Convention Center and near the Airport. The entry price for lunch was quite low at the time. It was about $14-16 per person. We thought it was very economic. However, once... More

Not as fancy and upscale as the other Asian buffets nearby like Moonstar and Kome, but it is cheaper at $15 for dinner (versus $23+ for the others). Definitely don't come here for the sushi as the selection is limited. Where it does better is the Chinese food, especially the honey shrimp and roast duck. Some of the fish is... More
