Just what the title says ... This place really let us down. We came in. Nice atmosphere and looked clean. Lots of choices: BUT the food was almost empty in the pans. Dried up or too old or Krispy to eat. We tried. Made our plates... Most all the food was cold. Very little was luke warm. We tried to... More

The location at Southland Shopping Center was closed when we there on September 6, 2014 with a sign on the door stating that they moved to the Tambellini's location on Saw Mill Run by the Bausman Street. So we took the 15 minutes to travel to the new location. The new location is huge compared to the Southland location, but... More

I went there with a friend and I wanted a steak, I'm allergic to seafood. They did not have a steak like they advertised. My friend went for the Crab legs. A bunch of Hill Billy's probably from Clairton, went and grabbed all the crab legs. They were laughing and the young kid said to me see my Daddy is... More

Yu's Old Town Buffet provides an excellent selection of Chinese and American cuisine. There is so much to try that it is easy to "hurt yourself" and eat too much. I also found the price to be very reasonable when compared to other restaurants with a comparable selection of food. My wife and I will eat there every time that... More

We went the day after Thanksgiving. The place was pretty busy. A friend told us they like it, so we thought we'd give it a try. We'll never go back. It began with the woman who seated us either lying or else she just could not be bothered, but when we asked for a booth she said they don't have... More

I was really looking forward to this place, but I was so disgusted when I went into the restroom that I did not want to eat. The handicap stall was so bad that I did not even use the facilities (even in any other stall) and I checked the cleaning schedule posted on the door It had last been cleaned... More

Kids just remind us from time to time that - "We should go to Old Town Buffet- we have not been there for sometime" when they are in the “eating mood " ..That would happen every month or two… And we go there. It is easy parking, no crowd...Unlike other places that decreased their menu and choices; they keep on... More

Be cautious ..pulling a scam with coupons! Went with the family and used a 10% coupon. They tried to cover the 9% discount on the recipt! When we questioned it he said drinks aren't included! Total BS! 10% off is what it is.
