Fair price, decent food

Came here for the buffet which was reasonably priced. Could of had some better selection of food but the food they had was decent. A proper dessert section would have bumped it up a bit.

We eat here about once a week. Unfortunately, both the service and overall quality of food is going downhill. They've had a turnover of service staff again (happened frequently over last several months) and the buffet is often not kept well stocked. It's sad since I really want to see this place succeed.

They have a decent selection of good food. You can get a side salad free with your buffet order. Service is hit and miss, usually good but not every time.

The service was very good, and the food was pretty good. I had the fried tofu vegetable. The sauce was light yet flavorful. My parents both had the buffet and liked everything. My dad especially liked the onion rings, and my mom enjoyed the shrimp.

We used to go to Pi's all the time but for quite a while now it has been going downhill, so we started going to China Palace and it was a lot better. But today we decided to give it another try. I ordered Chicken Fried Rice and my husband got Happy Family. Both were totally flavorless! I called the... More

I love anytime you can watch the cooks/chefs PERFORM your meal - awesome experience! They were so entertaining and engaging and the food was delicious!!! I love ASIAN food - my very favorite...hands down!!! The decor is nice and seating was different in that you could end up sitting elbow to elbow with a stranger, but once the show begins;... More

Pi's food is ok, and while selections may be similar to China Palace, the two have differing flavors. The service is ok, but the buffet is lacking in selections in my opinion.

Not the typical Chinese buffet, they do have a smallish buffet the items seem to stay the same and for the most part pretty tasty. They also offer a full Menu to order from. My family has this on our list of favorites for Chinese food we go there for birthdays or when ever we happen to be in Midland.... More

That this restaurant gets such good reviews reflects, I believe, how universal Asian food has been accepted in the American diet. This is a big place with a daily buffet and two dining rooms, both quite large. One side, the one often used for buffet, is windowless and dreary, in my opinion. The buffet is certainly plentiful and if you... More

We ate at the buffet on a weeknight. Food was good, but the soft drinks and hot tea were priced pretty high ($3+ each). Additionally, my wife was bummed that the buffet didn't have any vegetarian items, so she had to order off the menu. My kids really liked the food though. Overall though, a pretty decent experience.
