I am a local and do eat at Jumbo a couple times a year. I can say it seems the restaurant staff changes a lot for what ever reason and seems like the management changes as well. Our most recent visit was very good but not always the same result. This visit was on a busy Friday night and all... More

If you want your food freshly prepared you can take advantage of the hibachi where you select your ingredients and watch them cooked. There is also a buffet with nigiri sushi and sushi rolls;...

This is a typical Chinese buffet in terms of entree's and appetizers to sample but includes a Sushi Bar and a grill area where you can load up your plates with meats, shrimp and vegatables and have them cooked in front of you - all included in the price. The food is replaced often so it remains fresh - a... More

The Jumbo is open for lunch and dinner daily. The buffet contains Chinese food, sushi, hibachi, American food, and fruit, salads, and desserts. It is a must stop anytime we travel to the Hazleton area!

Jumbo China Buffet recently went through an owner transfer. On a recent, visit we encountered a very angry Sushi Chef that will not allow you to take more than two pieces of warm sushi without tipping him. As a matter of fact, my husband saw him in the bathroom and none of them washed their hands. As well as, wiping... More
