Came here with my family and found the food good and value priced for a family of adults and young children. Good variety of chinese and some American seafood dishes with fruit and salad bar, sushi bar and hibatchi grill. Desserts were a little lack luster, but we didn't come for the desserts. All you can eat. My personal favorites... More

It was good and would do it again for the price. But not the best looks better than it is. Seats need updated. Average but at $11.99 it was good.

no more. the air conditioner hasn't not worked in months. Management is to cheap too fix. The roof leaks and there are numerous buckets around the buffet to catch the droppings from the ceiling. The whole place needs updating. The food was just okay.

Our first hint should have been the badly cracked fabric in the booths. Food was mediocre, at best. The restaurant help gave no right of way as they moved about the place (Best stay out of their way!). Food items and service were average or less.

This buffet is really hit or miss but with lots of misses. If you want warm food, go when it's extremely busy so the turnover is better. If it's not busy, stay away because chances are the good has been there for a while! The bathrooms are some of the worst I have seen and the booths will tear your... More

My wife and I live in Myrtle Beach and we are making it a point to eat everywhere at least once. We usually go to Osaka Buffet for a decent priced sushi/buffet but chose somewhere else today. Mistake. Our first impression was standing waiting to be noticed. They were selling a beat up old booth for $40 and had a... More

My first visit to the China Buffet left me not very impressed. The food I had was what I would have expected and the price was good for lunch. The customer service on the other hand was terrible. The hostess seemed rather snippy when she approached me to see what I was there for. The waiter had no personality, no... More

I love great Chinese Food, but this food was like bad leftover Chinese food. The buffet food definitely was not freshly made. Outdated decor and overall not clean. I am also a firm believer that you can tell a lot from a restaurant's bathroom and this bathroom is filthy! This food was cheap, but you get what you pay for.... More
