Decent Chinese buffet food for the $$

I rate buffets like this: is the food plentiful and most importantly hot? Is the restaurant clean and how does the wait staff treat you. In my opinion quality has to rank somewhat lower considering the number of items on the buffet and the different types of foods they serve. So let me say I... read more

We've been going to The Lin Hibachi Buffet at least once a week since it opened a few years ago. The food is plentiful and freshly made. Kitchen workers are constantly filling up the items as they deplete. The variety is vast and there is something there for everyone. They will cook Hibachi style meals for you using fresh shrimp,...

The Hibachi part was made fresh & was very good. Buffet was not very good. Foods that were supposed to be cold were room temperature and several of the hot foods had been there for hours and were horrible. Waitress hovered over our table and took our last plate while my husband was still eating off it. She actually had... More

If you like lots of very fresh food, seafood, sushi, various asian foods, american foods, and all you can eat buffets, then this one is so good! At nights they even have crab legs. The sushi is fresh. You can have something specially made for you for the same price. The place is very nicely decorated, the staff is very... More

This was a very nice and pretty restaurant, with a number of food bars, and a good variety of dishes. Enjoyed the food, atmosphere a big plus.

We've been to the Hibachi restaurant before and this occasion was a delight. Our waitress was very friendly and efficient and continuously removed our used plates. Since this is a self-serve buffet, we were frequently returning to the ENORMOUS array of food choices to sample another delicious dish. The baby clams, the snow crab legs, the frog legs and shrimp...

Coming from a big city where buffets tend to be more pricy, this was a good value, especially for the weekend pricing. It was packed, so I assume the locals agree. Being packed didn't affect the substance of serving lines too much with one exception. The snow crab legs were constantly in short supply and I never got any, hence... More

We haven't been there since right after it opened several years ago. At that time we thought the food was mediocre. We decided to give it another try after a relative said it was pretty good now. Our experience was much worse than the first time. Everything we got from the buffet was either lukewarm or cold. The General Tso's... More

Everything is swimming in oil, tasteless and fairly disgusting. There were ceiling tiles falling down and a large bucket of dirty water in the aisle, presumably to clean with? We vowed never to go back. Plus has anyone heard the gopher meat story about this place.
