Low Priced Chinese Buffet

This is fairly good food for a low price. Some items were dried out from the heat, but most were pretty darn good (especially the shrimp). The only real negative was the presence of flies but hey this is southern Georgia in the summertime.

I arrived 15 minutes before closing and there was very little food out in the pans and some were empty (which is understandable just before closing). I would have gone on, but my companion wanted Chinese. So I assumed that I would be eating cold and hard food because as you know, when food is not changed out frequently, it... More

Excellently prepared food and fresh. Ate there several times during the course of our stay. Waitstaff was attentive and willing to listen to likes and dislikes about what to eat. Quick to assist in suggesting something we might like.

This small town does not have a lot of choices in regards to restaurants that surpass fast food. This is one of the few that does. If you give it a whirl you will be as surprised as we were. It's a large variety with a great price.

We are on our way home from San Antonio to Suffolk Va. when we stayed over in Tompson Ga. We asked the receptionist at the hotel if the Ming Wah was worth a try and with a nod from her we tried it. A typical Chinese buffet with scores of items to chose from we found arriving late in the... More

Food on the buffet is held too long. Ordering from the kitchen is a better bet. Selection is limited.

On my way home from Columbia SC to Atlanta GA I found this nice little restaurant off the highway. It doesn't look grand from the outside but the staff is super friendly and the food is good. For the money, it's great food. If you want something good and inexpensive, this is the place. Some dishes are even better the... More

I stayed at the hotel directly behind this restaurant. I love Chinese food so I was excited when I saw the sign but a little weary by the way it looks on the outside. I went for dinner on a Monday night so it wasn't a lot of customers. We ordered off the menu versus the buffet and the food... More
