Huge variety, average food

You do not eat at ANY buffet expecting quality. You go for variety and volume. The crystal chandeliers are attractive & unexpected in a buffet restaurant. But the tables & chairs must be the originals because they are in poor condition - wobbly, large pieces of wood chipped off. I take my... read more

I stop here every so often when visiting Buffalo and have never been disappointed. The place is bright and sparkly and has a large number of choices to fill yourself up with. They have a huge salad bar, a number of soups, a nice sushi selection for this type of place, an OK dessert bar (I just never really like... More

This is a rather large buffet with a large selection. In my personal opinion every single Chinese buffet is similar so I wouldn't say this is better or worse than any other. What I can say is its clean and the staff is friendly.

Nice decor, OK customer service for a buffet, convenience of location was why I kept trying it but on last trip I vowed to never return. Food is never hot, barely warm. I feel sick every time I eat there. Coupons are not worth a return visit. Will drive further for another option.

Zhangs Buffet is a nice, family friendly restaurant. We were just there with our daughter and grandchildren and usually visit about once per month. They have a big selection of Chinese food as well as some American food, sushi and Mongolian stations. It seems like there is always something for everyone, even the kids. The food is always hot and... More

Good value for the price. Decent selection. Food is warm and kept fresh. No complaints. Visited on a Wednesday. I always return when I am in the area and want some variety.

This used to be a great place to go, but the past several visits have shown a decrease in quality and cleanliness. We love sushi, but the sushi being served no longer appears or tastes fresh- even when going at 11:30am when you would expect it would be freshest - the start of the day. We watched waitresses remove used... More

Like every buffet I've been to, the food sits out and it can get stale. This is their problem. They tend to leave out their trays too long and the food gets cold and gets stale. But when they pull out fresh batches out of whatever items, boy oh boy they are good. I can't deny that their fresh food... More

I went here twice for lunch while on a business trip in Buffalo, NY. There is a great selection of food including sushi, and all of the food is hot and fresh. The meal was reasonably priced. If I am ever in town I will definitely visit again.
