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.

The first few times my family and I went to Plattsburgh, we always stopped off at the China Buffet because we thought it was really good for the price they charge (which it is). However, I recently tried different things on the menu and I realized that some of the items aren't as fresh as I've had in other chinese... More

Great food a la carte even though I don't much care about the all you can eat buffet - any all you can eat buffet. Not elegant by any stretch but tasty and fresh. Service rough.

I've tried this place a couple of times; main reason is this is where my company wanted to go. The food is okay. If I had to pick a favorite dish it would be the Black Pepper Chicken.

Compared to the other local chinese buffet (right across the street) this used to be the one I chose until the one across the street renovated completely and came out on top. Around the same time this restaurant started slipping in freshness.
