You should come here when you are very hungry..there are many choices of seafood, chicken, and sushi dishes and you can have your own choice of food cooked on the grill in front of you, without all the salt. For lunch, we had the mussels, salmon, shrimp and various chicken dishes with ice cream for dessert for only $7 and... More

It was a pretty average for oriental food. I judge these buffet places by 2 things. The Gen. Tso and the Broccoli/Chicken with garlic. The Broccoli/Chicken with Garlic wasn't offered, which I found unusual, and the Gen. Tso wasn't very good. The Egg Drop Soup was pretty good and get this, the pizza wasn't bad, for a Chinese Buffet.

My Hubby and I where in the mood for some good Chinese food. We had just relocated in the Sarasota University area, so we thought without checking reviews, which we normally do, we'd give New China Buffet a try. Again, MISTAKE! Walked in the door to a coy pond, that smelled very moldy. Clean though, so we thought ok, it's... More

Love this place. Good sushi at a good price. Also like their dim sum, Bok Choy and crab rangoons. They also have snow crab, but haven't tried it. My husband and I must eat here once a month. Worth a visit!

I was last in here at least a year ago, and it wasn't good. I was dying for Chinese buffet, and was close by. I'm so glad I gave the New China Buffet another try, it was delicious! I had the cold shrimp, sushi, egg rolls, crab rangoon, and some chicken skewers. I would definitely go again, and can't wait.

My family has celebrated many life events at New China. Each and every time the food has been excellent. If I have to list any shortcoming, they are slow to keep the snow crab leg pan filled. Otherwise, I've had nothing but fun and totally enjoyable meals at this restaurant...

I ordered a pickup order this evening from New China Buffet , at 8341 Lockwood Ridge Road. I ordered Chicken Chow mein and crab rangoon. A simple order that should not pose a problem to anyone. I opened the bag to find the most anemic chicken chow mein I had ever seen, it was completely white. Tasting proved why, it... More
