Don't Bother

5 or more years ago, this was a great place. No longer the case, it is now off our list of places to go when we don't feel like cooking. Food quality has deteriorated, and nothing is really fresh after 7 PM. Might be OK for lunch but kind of spendy for what is offered. 'Butter' for crab legs is... read more

Don't waste your time or your money! The meat dishes, had no meat left, they'd been picked through and only had old veggies. If you were lucky enough to find a piece of meat, you'll wish you hadn't, because it was hard and rubbery. The hot and sour soup was very bland. The crab legs pan was empty and never... More

Please look at the date of the poor reviews on this buffet. Yesterday, it was totally outstanding. The peanut butter chicken was about the best I have ever had. The fresh vegetables were steamed to perfection. The salmon was swimming in some kind of out of this world decent sauce. The whole buffet was a symphony of flavors and colors.... More

I don't know what has happened to this restaurant. I've complained several times about the cold food, even walking out one time. The hostess is just as cold as the food is. Today was the last straw. I witnessed an unattended child pick an item directly out of the buffet take a bite and then put the remainder back in... More

The selection of foods is pretty great in the buffet but a lot of the food is cold. Need to keep their chafing dishes hotter.

I was eating with my pregnant wife at China Buffet thinking about how the food tasted old when a look of disgust came over her face. There was a roach in my wife's food. After she returned from the restroom we explained to our waitress what happened. She asked us to pay for one of the meals and never apologized.... More

Astoundingly awful. Food was cold. The health department really needs to shut this place down. Not cool, tepid, warm - down right COLD. I should have walked out. Instead I had my meal but 10 minutes after leaving I feel nauseous. Ruined my afternoon, as I felt so bad I went straight home. Seriously the worst meal I've had in... More
