The food here is fair. On July 4th, I paid $9.9x for the lunch buffet and I consider this a fair price to pay given the food they serve. I am a cautious eater but occasionally I splurge a little. They don't exactly has the healthiest food on the planet but I think if you are careful, you can still... More

The only chinese buffets in the Rehoboth and even Ocean City, they do a good job at it. Huge selection of traditional Chinese fare and American classics. We were here on a Sunday afternoon around noon-thirty and this place was packing it in. People by the van load were piling in and eating their share, even a birthday party. For... More

I personally despise going to any type of a buffet, but I was starving and My husband and Daughter wanted Chinese food. It was about 3:00 on Wednesday afternoon, and not crowded at all. The food was excellent, and the staff was the best!! We will be going back!!!!

We visited this restaurant on a somewhat rainy Saturday night when all the restaurants in town were packed. The place was busy, but our party of four was seated immediately. The hibatchi grill was awesome...delicious shrimp and fresh vegetables, steak, chicken, etc. Our two year old's buffet was $1.50 and our 3 year old's buffet was $2.50, which my husband... More

When I visited this culinary establishment, I had low expectations, as it was a buffet. But after my first spoonful of Wonton Soup, I was in heaven. The wide variety of delicious dishes had me stuffed in under 30 minutes. Even so, I could not resist the tantalizing and diverse array of poultry, beef, and noodles. There were dishes even... More

Chinatown Buffet used to be a restaurant that we would visit on our trips to Rehoboth but after this last visit we have said "No More". Things have changed, there seems to be a different staff and with that there is a change in food and the quality and taste of product. The food is bland, all tasting the same,... More

Chinese buffets are frequently filled with poorly cooked, salty, oily food. Not the case here. The variety here was exceptional, price was very reasonable and the quality of the food was very good. I would definitely go back. Much better than expected.

This fun buffet is a favorite for any visitor, with lots of choices, a nice price for the all-you-care-to-eat diner, and a fine a la carte menu. Fresh, tasty food at a reasonable price!

We have visited this establishment on three occasions and with the exception of the last visit, the food was exceptional, the service was fine (it's a self serve buffet) and the environment was comfortable and clean. On our first two visits the three main serving stations were filled with a fresh, still-steaming variety of mostly asian/chinese dishes. So far I... More
