Tasty, Hot, Clean, what more can you ask

This was our first stop at China Garden and we enjoyed it a lot. The food on the buffet table was up to temperature, it was delightfully tasty -- too often these Chinese buffets tone down the seasoning until all you can taste is garlic -- and the buffet was kept stocked, clear of food scraps, etc... read more

I will not order from here again. We were in town visiting and decided to order from here. Once we placed our order it took them an hour and 30 minutes (almost 40 minutes late) to deliver our food, part of what we received was cold and soggy and some of it was missing. I called and asked for it... More

The Buffett was very well stocked and had a large variety of sushi. The servers were reasonably attentive and the food was hot. Price was reasonable. I would go back.

With the variety of good food on the buffet, you are not going to leave hungry! Selections include oriental and non-oriental dishes, so everyone will leave happ.

I've eaten at several Chinese buffet-style restaurants and found this one to be as good or a little better than most. The staff was friendly and greeted me upon entry. Wait-staff wasted no time in getting my drink order and was very attentive throughout the meal process. The food bar was nicely stocked with a variety of items and was... More

I went to China Garden about 2 weeks ago with a friend of mine. We were starving and by this being one of the only 2 buffets within a 30 minute radius, we gave it a shot. After the drinks were given, we helped ourselves to the cooking stations. Pans were 3/4 EMPTY. Food looked tired under the lights. Hardly... More

The experience here is about the equivalent of sticking your head in a window and having a feed bag attached. The food is insipid, unhealthy, and of bad quality. It's often cold. The buffet always looks like a wreck and the lighting is bad. The staff is not warm at all. The only thing saving it is it's cheap.

I've been to several Chinese buffets in a 60 mile radius from my house (I live in a small town where we don't even have a McDonald's...so we like to try restaurants all around us) and this is by far the best one we've ever eaten at. I LOVE sushi and although I wouldn't compare Chinese Garden's sushi to a... More

I go here a good bit and I enjoy it. The waitresses/waiters could work on being more friendly but overall it's a good buffet. Howeverrrr, there are "meats" that don't look familiar so haha I'm ticky in what I choose :)

Serves all-you-can-eat buffet lunch and dinner. Started as a Chinese place but has expanded to include American entrees. Also pizza. Chinese options aren't bad. Spring rolls are excellent. Inexpensive.
