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;...

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!
