Cold Food

My daughter and I love Chinese food. We used to go to the Asian Cafe before they closed it down. Anyway, we were Christmas shopping a few weeks ago and decided to eat lunch at New China Buffet. BIG MISTAKE. Everything except the wonton soup was cold. They ran out of the item that my daughter liked... read more

Please dont ever eat here... we order food and picked it up but when we sat down to eat it was so disgustingly nasty.. we wanted to take it back but I already knew what the outcome would have been. Just more nasty food.... forget about it... and not to mention the food had me hurting and feeling weird. I... More

My wife and I ate here with a friend during the lunch rush on Friday June 13, 2014. We all thought the food was really good. The place could use some updating but food was good. Have only been at Lunch rush so everything was warm and fresh.

We went here and nothing was warm except my sushi (which should be cold) my husband had asked how old the shrimp was because it was mushy and grey! NO ONE KNEW! We asked for a manager and she didn't even know. So we told her fine we were leaving because we simply would not pay to get sick. She... More

Everything we chose off of the buffet was cold or luke warm. Not worth the $8/per person price. Asked the servers if the kitchen would be putting out hot dishes but they just kept suggesting we get the Hibachi grill. I don't think they understood that we were paying for a buffet and nothing was fresh or hot. Pretty much... More

I was in the area visiting family and we decided to have lunch. What a mistake this was. The food was dry and some not even hot. The food tasted like it was from the day before and had been reheated. We told the server that one of the people in our group was not going to eat and she... More

This is pretty much what you expect for an inexpensive chinese buffet. There is a great variety of dishes and they are all pretty good.

Am a frequent visitor at this location and have always found the food to be fresh and hot. The salads are crisp and the presentation at all the food bars is crisp and clean. Have never found them to have an empty tray and they try using the Just In Time theory so that it is fresh, hot, and ready... More
