I've eaten at China Coast twice while in the area. The price is reasonable, portions are large, staff is friendly and everything is served piping hot. Nothing fancy or exceptional but good American-style Chinese food for a fair price.

We went for dinner fairly late and there weren't many people in the restaurant, but we could see quite a few take out orders being prepared. The menu was extensive and reasonably priced. One of us had the chicken with garlic sauce combination with egg roll, another had the General Tsao's chicken combination with egg roll, and I had crab... More

My husband my self and our friends have gone to this restaurant twice, we live in the area and its the only Chinese buffet in close to home. HOWEVER, the first time we went the waitress kept bugging us about a tip. We didn't leave it because you don't ask for a tip. She chased after my husband as we... More

While I have never been a fan of the buffet, { overwhelmingly greasy, unhealthy, options} I am however a big fan of their takeout! I always ask for their Lemon, Orange, Sesame, or Garlic meat dishes to be done with Tofu, instead. They are always accommodating! Veggies are done just right, crisp, and healthy, and the sauces are too good!... More

I've dined in and gotten take out here for many years, and I'm running out of patience. The Chicken Curry I got tonight was described on the menu as having potato in it. I asked them to add broccoli and onions to it as the menu description seemed otherwise bland. Imagine my surprise and delight to find morsels of Americana... More

Great value for money. Lunch buffet is good but not that extensive. The food is always fresh and hot but I wish they had a larger selection. If I'm in the area again I'll definitely give it a second try.

While trying to fit the local palate, this Chinese food is not bad (not great, but surely not bad). We'd go back - buffet is very good!

We have been eating at China Coast for years and have always enjoyed it there. But for some reason this year there has been a change, There are more male waiters then before and they are young super rude buys. They make rude jokes. The last time we had dinner I had to get up and get my own silverware... More

Horrid buffet. Crowded because it is all you can eat. Doughnuts, deepfried crabcakes and anything else you can fry including veggies. Good thing the hospital is down the road. The staff is rude and just grunt at you. I wonder if immigration has checked this place out. Many employees speak little to no English. Horrid General Taos. The chicken floats... More
