wasn't friendly, and there was some kind of drain smell back near the bathroom, which is why we didn't use the bathroom there. The food was great (we never had undercooked food or cold hot food, or food that was supposed to be cold that was warm or room temperature.) We enjoyed the quality of the food and the reasonable...

Cold food, poor selection, mediocre service. Place less than 20% full - should have been a warning. Only thing ok was the soup and the drink! Won't be going back. Place should close.

This place is roach infested! While we were eating a roach crawled on top of the booth. We immediately got up to leave and told the waitress. She then went over and picked up the roach with her bare hand! No napkin or anything! Afterwards she looked at us and smiled and said thank you. This is the same waitress... More

While there is a large selection of food on the buffet, it lacks flavor. The servers are efficient; however, the hostess/ cashier is downright rude and nasty. We've eaten at Hong Kong Buffet several times, each time worse than the time before. We cut our last visit short due to the overwhelming stench of mildew. Please do yourself a favor... More

We have gone here several times, and the bathrooms were always a bit of a concern for me. I tried to tell myself that perhaps it was not reflectant of the entire restaurant. The bathrooms are so dirty that I cannot use them, they smell heavily of moth balls, and there is mold and rust creeping up the doors. Most... More

Dont go there at lunch time. A few customers eat there at lunch time. You will get a big chance of eating unfresh food. Food are sitting at serving table for all day and freshy cooked food will not be served until the serving tray is empty. Beef & Broccoli covered with heavy souce. Beef is tasteless and stiff. Fries... More

I ate at this restaurant once about 5 years ago. I remember not liking it too much--hence the fact that I had not returned in almost 5 years. But, the other day I was hungry and didn't feel like "fast food", so I thought I would give the buffet a try again. I figured maybe they just had a bad... More

We walked out the other night. Got seated, checked out the buffet and decided to leave. Its been going down hill the last year or so, but this trip was the worst ever. Greasy slippery floors, cold dried out food. Its just plain dirty. Forget about eating the ice cream, its disgusting. They don't replenish the expensive food fast enough.... More
