Crystal Garden Buffet, Ronkonkoma,NY

Nothing special. Typical Chinese buffet. No special dishes. Restaurant clean. Waiters cleaned tables as you went back for more food. When bill presented I questioned the 3 charges. One was the cost of the meal. One was tax & one was the tip. I'd bet plenty of people double tip.

We have been going to this restaurant for many years and it is consistently delicious! It is a Chinese food/sushi buffet all you can eat type restaurant. There are many different dishes to chose from including crab legs and many different kinds of shrimp, soups, sushi and desserts, including soft vanilla and chocolate ice cream.

Good atmosphere - great place to go with friends -it is a typical Chinese buffet but the food is fresh and appetizing. We go with a few "girlfriends" and always have a good time. Plenty to eat and with a good variety and it is close for all of us. I plan to go again in the next few weeks.

Your shoes stick to the floor. Visible dirt everywhere in the restaurant too. The food here is just OK, but the dirt is all over. Now, their new thing is... More

We go often. The food is always consistently good. Good variety. Sushi lady is friendly and prompt. You get your money's worth here. Down sides are that the wallpaper is starting to peel. Place is looking run down and if they want to keep their party business they should update. Bathrooms also are gross.

Nothing special, but a million times better food tha the one in Central Islip and the one in Deer Park. Try the dish called the Triple Crown!

No reservations needed, plenty of seating, plenty of fresh delicious food to pick from, even the picky eaters were happy. Reasonable price & wait staff was on their game 👍. Will definitely do this again!
