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

Went there Sunday night for a quick dinner, I am not a buffet fan, but will admit the food was well prepared, tasty and served hot. Besides a full chinese buffet they also had sushi and items such as roast beef, pizza, mac and cheese. The place is clean and the service good.

We went on a Monday night. The food was good, lots of options. They have a sushi bar. They also have a section of American food. The service was ok. The price is average. I think it was 13.50 for adults and under 11 is discounted. I am not a big fan of buffets, but it was good.

I will agree that the food is pretty good and there is a good selection. My issue is two people in particular a man and woman who seem to run the place. They watch you like a hawk and are just ignorant. I went for the take out buffet, paid and he kept my change. It wasn't much but it's... More

We are rubbing our bellies saying quote I ate too much. End quote. Soft serve yogurt machine not placed well. Need better dessert options. Overall very good fresh food.

The Hong Kong Buffet is a nice, clean, buffet-style Asian-themed spot for lunch/dinner. Their buffet offers a wide variety of dishes - from salad bar to sushi, favorites like Orange Chicken or egg foo young, crab rangoon, egg rolls, the list goes on and on... They also offer an extensive take-out menu. They are very reasonably priced for the buffet,... More

This Chinese buffet has a good variety of food. The service is good. It's a little pricier than most buffets and it does not include soda. The place looks clean and the buffet food area is well supervised by the employees at the counter who are always looking over the food area for unsupervised children and cleanliness. Yes, they have... More

I can't understand how this place gets good reviews. Went there once and everything tasted like DUST. No kidding. I had to put SALT in the brown gravy. NO flavor whatsoever. I could not believe that nothing I tried had any flavor. I kept trying other things...no flavor. Only good thing was the old Chinese waitress (yes) who asked us... More

This is one of the best Chinese buffets around, I love their food and I don't even like Chinese food.

I went here as a kid all the time. This was the family Chinese place. However like 9 years ago this place went down hill fast. The food is oily and lacking taste. It is aweful! And as if that wasn't enough my stomach was in agonizing pain the last two times I ate it. Don't subject yourself to this... More
