Wow, what a jumble of reviews, some hate it and some love it. The couple we went with picked the place so we had no choice. The restaurant wasn't overly fancy but looked well cared for, neat and clean. Staff was very friendly. Really nice selection on the buffet and everything looked freshly done. Food was being replenished during the... More

The best Chinese/Asian food I've ever eaten. The preparation, taste & freshness was all that I hoped for. The portions are, of course, quite generous, and when you get carry-out, it serves easily for two meals. But, when you have a craving and it lives up to your expectations, that is a very satisfying experience. Hats-off to the shop lady... More

Mrs Chen's Chinese Restaurant has been serving since I visited in the 90's. I love the wide selection of dishes offered with a dessert bar. Food is kept warm & tasty with a reasonable price for adults. I do not know the price of children for the buffet. It is a small buffet compared to the New Dynasty next door,... More

Very little to pick from and everything I tried was horrible. I told my hubby after three bites that I wanted to leave, so we did. I told the waiter and the manager the food was bad and we didn't want to eat there and left. We went next door to the New Dynasty and it was great. 40 cents... More

The buffet idea was scary at first - but after trying a bit of everything I was pleasantly surprised and loved every bite. The price is beyond reasonable and the line to get was long but moved along very quickly. The place has been around a long time and I am happy that we finally gave it a try. You... More

The service is great. It is a small buffet without a lot of variety, but the dishes are always good.

As title says, I've been holidaying in Sarasota for the past 21 years, often more than once a year so consider myself almost a local. I have to admit, despite having built quite a good rapport with the manager due to us going to this place for so long, the service has always been perfect. This restaurant has always been... More
