Quaint

Quaint buffet place in Marietta. We were seated immediately and the food was well stocked. The only negative thing is that I thought some of the items had too much sodium.

We read reviews. Parking lot packed. We gave it a try. I knew we were in trouble when I saw the rice. Absolutely one of the worst Chinese we ever had the misfortune to try. No taste in anything, not even the chicken, soup or noodles. Food was mushy, and had no color to it. I don't even know how... More

As the name implies, it is a Chinese buffet and one of the best Chinese restaurants we have found in a long time. We look forward to stopping by for one or two meals when ever visiting friends in Marietta Ohio.

The overall selection was fair however most of the food was just barely warm (and I was there around 6:30pm for prime dinner time). Crab legs are not included and are an additional 6.99 per pound where as many buffets include crab legs during the dinner hours.

Eat here once a month and am always pleased with the quality and variety. The sushi is rather bland, but not everyone's cup of tea.

Stopped by for a Chinese food fix. There wasn't a big choice but a lot of the basics and lots of it and what was there was good. It wasn't small mind you but just not as big as some they had three hot bars an desert bar with a sushi and seafood

The waitstaff was nice but the food was old and tasteless. Fried rice was made with saffron instead of the soy sauce mixture.

There was a vast array of different foods. Wait staff very good. Prices reasonable. Full ice cream bar with 8 hand dipped flavors and numerous other desserts.
