Cold food, old food, we complained nicely and quietly. They charged us a little over 20$$. We told them all we did was taste some food, took a couple bites and were disappointed. We didn't want to pay for two dinners,we were willing to pay for only one. They did not try to make us feel better or try to... More

The food was old and tasted terrible. I asked the cashier if they made their food fresh every day because the food I ate you could tell was reheated and old. The cashier said it was fresh everyday...they NEVER reheated. I was told not to come back and they refused to let us have a number to reach the General... More

Great value for the food, I come here almost every week, it tastes always great, especially the seafood combination and the honey chicken. Compare to other Chinese buffet in town, I consider this is the most cost efficient one.

The food was old and tasted horrible. We paid $19.98 for two buffet meals and it was not worth it. Jack up the price on a holiday? Food tasted disgusting and the it smelled of urine and vomit throughout the whole restaurant! I would not recommend this place to anyone with an appetite!

I like the buffet for the price. For about $8 at lunch you get a buffet and a mongolian grill too. The price also includes your drink. Most places with the buffet , grill and drink are almost twice the price. The staff keeps your drinks full and picks up the empty plates quickly. The buffet is kept stocked. The... More

I have been to Bluffs China Buffet several times. Mostly I come for the lunch buffet (Under $8 including drink). I have very few complaints about the food and there is a wide variety. During their recent remodeling, they have added a Mongolian grill.

GREAT BUFFET! GREAT PRICES...It was only 14 bucks for my fiance and me during lunch hour. The food was great and lots of it. The garlic toast was burnt but I didn't eat it anyway. The hostess was on her cell phone a lot but didn't ignore us at all. She kept offering to refill our drinks and if everything... More
