Only warrants a meh from me

My first visit. Food is a hit and miss. Some dishes are okay, but anything that is fried, is way over fried, that it became too hard to bite through. I was not impressed. Loads with msg too. I was thirsty the whole afternoon and night. I won't recommend this place.

I had a lunch meeting here. I was so happy when I saw vegetable choices (spinach with garlic sauce, broccoli,). The baby steamers in garlic sauce, lettuce wraps, nim chow, sushi, etc. was great as well and everything else you can think of looked appetizing. They were also putting out fresh dishes and replenishing all the time. I love the... More

I can't imagine how many times I must have driven by this place without giving it a second thought. A friend took us here for dinner one night, and we all loved it. Even my 8 year old, who claims that he doesn't like Chinese food, asked to go back for our next restaurant night (which we did!) The Chinese... More

When I come to providence, we always come to Hong Kong Buffet because the food is fresh and the price is unbeatable. The place have delicious sushi. The sushi is at room temperature not cold like in other buffets. If you like more variety in food come after 3:00pm but be ready to pay a little extra for shrimp, roast... More

We typically do not try new chinese places but we thought we would try this place because it was in the top 100 in the US. We tried and now we are addicted. The prices are very reasonable for what you are served. Besides the regular menu buffet items they also serve sushi and prime rib in the cost of... More

I'm not much for buffet's however this place is the best for what you get. A real value for the dollar. Lunch is $8.45 for the Buffet plus the cost of drinks. The quality of food is good however this is basically an average restaurant. like I said it is the best of the three Chinese Buffet's in the area.

A chinese buffet, by definition, is not top scale stuff. It is simple, inexpensive ingredients, prepared in a multitude of ways, to satisfy a broad range of palates. This place hits the mark. First off, it is very clean. The carpet, chairs, fixtures, all look wiped down. The staff cleaned well. The food choices are abundant. The size of the... More
