Nothing wrong with this place

I think I can understand why some people might not be happy with their visit (especially about 30 minutes afterwards) but I don't think there is anything wrong with this China Buffet. There food is not especially good, but for the price I don't expect amazing food. I mean, for like $4.85 or so... read more

I don`t think I`ve ever given a buffet more than three stars. This one gets four! I liked everything I tried, and I tasted a dozen items. The food was hot, fresh, and plentiful! Our family enjoyed our Sunday afternoon excursion. This price was remarkably low also! We will definitely be returning.

Honestly, and purely disgusting. My family has visited this "establishment" on few occasions, and got brutally sick after each visit. The majority of the food is utterly gross, and probably one of the most un-appetizing meals I have ate.

We went here with friends. It was good for the price. I liked what I got, and they were very good about refilling drinks.

My parents son sister and I made our second trip to China Buffet. For an inexpensive dinner - the food is good. Unlike most buffets the waiter asked if we needed anything refreshed which was very nice. The items we wanted were filled quickly. We enjoyed the green beans, seafood delight, walnut shrimp, pot stickers, steamed clams, rice and strawberry... More

Even though it was busy, the food was not fresh. The lo mein noodles were overcooked and the chicken was greasy and hard. My girlfriend ate one bite and was done. I approached the manager at the register and informed her we did not have a pleasant experience. I said I would pay for our drinks but not the food,... More

SO that all of you know, this buffet reopened next to Marc's in the next plaza. The other china buffet is going by this one obviously to get their business, but don't be fooled. It is not that good. Same owners and same waitresses work next to Marc's and it is called The New China Buffet Sushi and Hibachi. Enjoy!

I totally agree. I must have been there just before it was sold, and had my usual experience. Let's face it, we didn't go there for the ambiance but for hot, tasty food for little money. The next time I returned, it didn't look the same, feel the same, or taste the same besides the price being higher. Different things... More

I saw a few recent negative reviews lately. I was just there again 2 weeks ago. I didn't notice anything different. Everything I tried was tasty and good. The only thing I noticed different was the big fountain when you walk in was drained and unplugged. The staff is friendly an look to all be chinese. Yes, try to avoid... More
