I was not impressed at all

The place was not a good place for Chinese food. Dried out buffet, kinda like scrapes in the tin buffet pans. I would say , don't bother and if you were to actually temp the food on the buffet, you would more than likely find it would not pass Ag and Mkt standards.

Stopped at the Grand Buffet recently while I was home and while they have added a hibachi offering to their menu, to me they seem plagued by the same problem they've always had. How to keep the food hot and plentiful. Went there for dinner and several items were missing and while the food was OK, it was barely warm... More

Not that Grand!! Very limited items. Sushi is just the minimum. If you can make a meal out of soup & peel & eat shrimp, okay. A very cheap $7 lunch-that is all you can expect.

This place now has a sign up stating that if you take more than 5 plates, they will charge you an extra 10% for the waitresses. First of all, does this mean more than 5 plates per person or per check? Second, this is a buffet. I generally leave a buck or two, but I should not be forced to... More

They insist on a tip. I paid my bill via Credit Card. I was going to throw a couple of dollars on the table just for taking the dirty dishes away. The woman who came back with the receipt pointed at the tip line and said you fill this part out. I was so mad. I know someone who was... More

I am a long time customer and the last couple of years it has gone downhill. Last night we went, the dumplings were rock hard and barely any filling as it was all dough. Some dishes were cold and others were empty and never did get refilled and it was 5:45pm. Their kids were running around which was distracting. I... More

We like this place and go often when in P'field. The food is varied, fresh, and very tasty. I agree with the writer that the sushi is poor; one was made of hotdogs! The dumplings are too thick and rubbery, and the seafood, including the clams and mussels overcooked, but everything else is delicious and expertly prepared. They cook for... More

Today I went to Grand Buffet with two of my friends. We had been there in the past and only go there because they have more of a selection than other buffets. We had come to realize the service was sub-par but we decided to go simply for the selection. We all got one plate ate or food and the... More

Now I think when you review a restaurant, you should keep everything in context. This is Pittsfield Ma , not Chinatown in a big metropolitan city. You really can't compare one against the other. I've been here three times ...compared against an other 'value' buffets [$9.99] this place really holds it's own. Many Asian foods to choose from and they... More

For over 10 years something has held me back from going to this restaurant and now I know why. Intuition. I have asked family and friends about the restaurant and everyone said it was "alright.' Never great, not a good, never even a terrible. just an "alright." I add my, "it's alright." too. The five members of our group all... More
