Great selection of good Chinese food.

We visit this buffet each year when we return to RI for the summer. The food is good, fresh & plenty of it with a great selection. We have limited Chinese food near our home in FL so really like this place where we can overdo on it.

We expected more quality food for the rating it received on Yelp as well as having been listed as one of the best buffets around! Unfortunately, it had a lot of food, but most were chicken or rice items. Very disappointing the steamed crab legs were not being served but instead some seafood sautee. Also, they listed mei fun on... More

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
