Huge selection and something for everyone! Rock crabs, crab legs, hibachi & sushi bar, tons of desserts. ...the list goes on. Only downside: It's pricey. I'm used to paying $8-10 per person at most chinese establishments....when i received the bill it was about $15 each + $2 for a drink. Everyone was impressed and would definitely eat here again in...

This place has a wonderful menu at a great price. If you like sushi, they have a great selection of freshly made at all times Buffet Changes, but always many things to please anyone. Have someone in the party not into Chinese? No problem, they always have a selection of dishes to please. Always good, always fresh and excellent Service.... More

If you're in a hurry & on a budget, I highly suggest this place. The cruisine ranges from Asian to Italian to American. There's something there for everyone. Don't forget to leave room for desert because their bananas in syrup & their puddings are to die for. Tip the sushi chef $2 or more & he'll make you anythjng you... More

Had dinner with daughter and was really surprised at the amount of food on buffet. Lots of fresh fruit and melons. Would return even though I thought price was high for Chinese buffet.

Fairly large buffet with many choices. Since you pay when you leave, I was disturbed to find out they charge extra for coffee and soda. The service was not great and the prices have risen. However, if you are hungry for Chinese and want it quickly, it is an adequate choice.

When this place opened it seemed to be alright. As time has passed and other options have become available in the area, the service has declined here. I now find it to be very dirty and grimey. The food was usually decent, but with the looks of the bathroom, dining rooms, floors, lobby, and parking lot, I can only imagine... More

This buffet has gone down in quality. Everything I tried tasted the same. It was not worth the price. The ice milk for dessert was awful. Who knows how often machine is cleaned. I had an upset stomach for a few days after eating here. I will not return.

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

More often than not I'm disappointed by Chinese buffets, but Jumbo is an exception. There was a large selection of items, all of them quite fresh. 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;...
