We were rushed for lunch while attending a conference and seeing this place we decided to go in. The best part - food ready when we walked in so no waiting. The choices were not as plentiful as a larger place, but I think they did a good job given their limitations. Most items were average in taste, with the... More

This used to be our go to for family meals, but the quality and taste of the food is not what it once was. There are often food items that are empty (General Tso's) and some items are picked over and dried out. The food is bland at best.

You have to know that a buffet is going to be average food in big quantities. I am not a fan of them at all but co workers like volume over quality so I joined in. The chicken dishes actually were decent. I found most of the vegetables overcooked so to me no taste other than the sauce they were... More

Items on the food line were either very hot or fairly cold. Pepper fried shrimp and some other selections were breaded and the breaking was soggy. Food seemed as though it was a long time on the buffet. The guests went from five or six to perhaps a dozen or more and finally some items were replenished with fresh, but... More

We have been there for lunch when its busy and fresh food keeps coming out and is good but if its slow and food sits it can be bad for example rice can dry out and be hard. The bathrooms are the worst they dont feel clean at all and are very dim and not well maintained at all. You... More

Went early on a Saturday night, 'hostess' yelled at us from the back of the room and motioned behind her and said 'in back'. No hello, no welcome to China buffet. A girl cam to our table and was very surly and said 'what do you want to drink'. Again, no hello, etc. The food was plentiful and tasty but... More

My boyfriend and I love going to this Chinese Buffet. The food is great, the staff is friendly, and there is a nice variety. I have gone there probably about 10 times in the last two years. Everytime the food has been fresh and the place has been clean. I advise people to go for the dinner, there is more... More
