This tiny restaurant only serves a few items. Everything is the run-of-the-mill prepackaged junk. It seems they add salt or MSG to everything. I was unable to completely eat anything I tried. I actually went to the mens room to wash out my mouth with warm water. I had to get the taste out of my mouth. When I returned,... More

Arrived here at 8:15 p.m. There was plenty of parking outside. China One Buffet closes at 9:00 p.m. on Friday evenings. The food was average tasting. When I went for a second serving of soup, there was a small beetle in one of the soup bowls. It was trying to climb out. Makes you wonder how clean the kitchen is... More

This is one of the best Chinese buffets I've eaten at. We go there several times a month though it's 70 miles from my home. The food is freshly cooked and of great variety. The lady that runs it, Luci, is very friendly and a gracious hostess.

Admittedly, I did not go to this restaurant with high expectations. Based on the other reviews one would expect a hit or miss experience. I must have hit a good night. The buffet arrangement is a bit unusual but once you find your way around it seems to make sense. The hostess was most cordial and helpful in the extreme.... More

Inconsistent quality, food is sometimes great, other times horrible. Nice people, too bad you can't bet on the food.

The food there was cold and yuck. When we asked about how it was served the waitress told us that "this is the way they do it in China". I doubt it.

Went in around 2PM, when most buffets are winding down from lunch and preparing for the evening rush. I wasn't expecting all the foods to be full and fresh (which they weren't) but I was expecting to find that one dish that I would like and fill up on. While eating my first and only plate full I was wishing... More

This was the strangest Chinese buffet place I've ever been to. I don't know much about Chinese cuisine, but I ordered off of the menu because the buffet only had three vegetarian items, which my boyfriend had and said were all good - garlic mushrooms, roasted potatoes, and vegetable lo mien. None of that appealed to me at the time,... More
