Been here many times over the years and have always found this Chinese buffet very nice. There is an excellent assortment of dishes, and also includes salads and desserts. Value is excellent and I found the service good also. I always look forward to going back when I'm in the United States.

I have eaten here several times in the last few years & the food has always been hot, consistent & mostly fresh. They offer quite a nice variety & an adequate number of Chinese dishes & soups, limited dim sum and a wide selection of desserts & fruit. Most dishes are stir fried, but some are deep fat fried or...

There was a great variety of food for the family to enjoy. Everyone in the family found food that they liked. The food was displayed well and the service was pleasant. The girl that waited on us was friendly and kept our table clear of extra plates. Not overly impressed with the quality...it is not luxury dining, but for a... More

Just a good Chinese buffet -- probably not as good as the ones in Boise because it doesn't have the traffic to turn the dishes nearly as fast, but good nonetheless.

This China Buffet is like others in the chain but lacks the space to present its food in the same manner. The kitchen was attuned to keeping the dishes refilled with the demands being placed on it by a busy Friday night crowd.

I LOVE their mushroom and broccoli/beef the best. For lunch it's only about $7.50 and it's all you can eat. Excellent value. Hard to believe that this building was once a dollar store! I come here when I'm feeling like having Chinese food.

Hi gang, I opted to eat here just for a change of pace. There are a lot of items available for the discriminate eater, fresh and tasty. I drank just water with my meal and got by for around $10 plus tip. The decor was predictable, flatware on the table minimal in value, I used chopsticks. Service was scarce. I... More

We go to the #1 China Buffet fairly often, and have always enjoyed it. My family and I go every year on Christmas and it is great. The food is very tasty, and there is a great variety. The staff has always been friendly and very helpfull. For a quick lunch that is far better than any fastfood joint this... More
