Best in Town

China Buffet is our favorite of all the Chinese restaurants in town, including rated well above the NEW Golden Palace. Their buffet is always plentiful and HOT. Service is quick and excellent. We also order for delivery, and again, very good service.

We have gone maybe 5 times in past couple years. It is a hit or miss on the quality of food. It can come out perfect one day, super greasy next time and horribly dry a different time. I have experienced all three. However, even though the staff is a bit slow they were always nice when I went.

Great buffet, friendly. Clean buffet kept well stocked and plenty of options. No dish is ever allowed to stay empty for more than a minute. The buffet is checked frequently for temperature and levels of food. Hot food is hot and cold food is cold. Everything tastes great. Really enjoy each time that we visit.

My friends who had more local knowledge than I took me to the buffet, proclaiming its value and for money and they were not wrong. For a fantastic range of Chinese food (well over 50 options) it cost us less than $10 a person which was amazing. The food was all very nice and we all went away very full... More

Most of the Chineese places are pretty similar, this is not an exception. It is clean and they usualy keep the buffet trays full. A decent value for the money.

We asked about take out. Said the price was $7. Said if we take little the price was less, if we take a lot the price was more. We asked if filling the tiny container we were given and closing the lid was good. We were told yes. The buffet had items that were either out or had been sitting... More

Oriental buffet? Yuck, right? Not here. This is a small, cozy place run by Chinese folks who know how to do buffet items that taste nearly as good as individual order -- and at amazingly low prices. Absolutely great lunch place; dinner, too, if you're not looking for atmosphere. The only reason this isn't rated "5" is that almost all... More

Plattsburgh has a number of Chinese "buffet" style restaurants. This one has the usual fare. The good thing is that the food was not overly salty or greasy. That's a good thing. I recommend the port fried rice.
