My last visit was my last visit.

China best was one of my favorites. I went there about 3 weeks ago and things just didn't go good. 1.The lunch buffet there doesn't start until 12. (even though most peoples work lunch starts at 11:30) But, If you show up at 12:15 be prepared to wait for the food. Sushi is never ready when... read more

Great bang for you buck. Best time to go is about 1745 hrs because they are beginning to have the buffet set up for the evening. Great selections and hot buffet is included. I love that you can watch them making the sushi. If it isn't on the buffet, ask them for it. And so what if they charge you... More

I just got home from this restaurant and it was delightful as always. The owners are lovely people. There were so many selections of fresh sushi to choose from that I didn't get to sample every one. The cool thing is, they make the sushi right there and you can watch as they do it. If something isn't on the... More

I'm always surprised this place still stays open. I do business in the area, and thought I would give this one more try. I was sorry I did. The interior is a hodgepodge of broken tables and chairs, burned out light bulbs, chipped dishes and dull, many times used flatware. The buffet table is spotty, if an item runs out,... More

We have been going to China Best for at least 15 years. Family run and very friendly especially to kids. Sushi is very fresh and the dinner buffet is only $11.99. They have tuna, eel, crab rolls, shrimp, tons of rolls. There is also some chinese buffet, nothing special. The sushi is fresh and delicious. Restaurant could stand an overahaul,... More

This place is buffett style. I dont know if they offer alacarte. Buffett does not have alot of choices, pretty small, cheesy, not good and pathetic. The sushi on the buffett is also pathetic, it just does not taste good not many choices. There are lots of sushi and chinese food restarants in the area that are better. I'll never... More

My husband and I have been going to China Best since it opened, years ago. We are very pleased with the sushi/chinese buffet. We love the uni, the smoked salmon and cream cheese rolls, and the octopus. It keeps getting better. Recently, we have found that there is usually something new on the buffet that was not there the last... More
