The restaurant itself is huge went during lunch which was pretty much empty. The food itself was filling, not bad, but a little plain. China Buffet is worth a try.

Better than the average Chinese buffet. The food was fresh and filled in on a regular basis. The mussels where especially good and very large.

This restaurant claims to have multiple Best of the Beach awards and it is a nice looking place but it is terrible with an indifferent staff and poor quality, stale food. Some of it looked dangerous to eat as if it had been out for days. There are better places to eat in Myrtle Beach.

Stopped for a late dinner with our family, buffet was pretty much empty and the food that was out had been there for a while. Service was just as bad, we ran out of drinks and had to go track down our server. To top it off they added 10% gratuity to our bill. For 6 people it was $91!... More

Very good place for cheap dinner. You can get sushi, wok, sweet and sour chicken in buffet. Average check is about $15 per person. They have high chair and meal for young kids like rise, vegetables and fruits

The food at this buffet is barely edible. It's so bad that I wouldn't feed it to my own dog. We spent $40 for 3. We would have been better off eating at Wendy's. SAVE YOUR MONEY!!!!

I attend Webster University. China Buffett is located in a convenient location close to school. Saturday 09/12/15 at 12:15pm, I went to this restaurant. Some of the items on the buffet were not fully cooked. But I did not hold that against them I just decided to eat chicken and rice which was decent. I went to the register. The... More

It was a classic Chinese restaurant with all the things you come to expect over the years decent sauces on their chicken and as well they kept their food decently fresh. Not my favorite but definitely passable for lunch. Ps don't eat the sushi

Fantastic variety and lots of it! Delicious Chinese food and very reasonably priced, especially if you use the coupon in the local tourist guide, available at the local WalMart. You have to pay a few dollars extra if you want to gorge yourself on the all you can eat Snow Crabs option, other than that everything is included apart from... More

You cannot understand the chinese workers one bit. The food was cheap and tasted bad. The dishes are not washed properly. Deserts are very cheap and disgusting. Ice cream melts very quick and does not taste like normal ice cream.
