They get it right. Atmosphere so-so. On restaurant row. Busy busy, but this keeps food freshly made. Very reasonable prices and servers don't hover. For an extra price you get all-you-can eat crab legs. Soups, salad fix'ins, sushi, assorted, delicious choices, desserts, beverages. Good choices for a group eating together.

As a local who has made the mistake of eating here more than once, I can't believe the relatively high ratings of this restaurant on TripAdvisor. I wonder if people are confusing it with the nearby and superior New China Buffet? This location may be closed permanently and if so, good riddance. The dark, dirty dining room smelled of mildew....

I based my decision to go to this restaurant on Tripadvisor reviews. My experience was so-so to negative. Pros: excellent Mongolian beef and crab cakes, attractive Mongolian barbecue selections, $50 to feed two teenage boys and two adults Cons: many of the items were stale or cold, the overall food quality was poor I was reluctant to go to this...

The buffet is to start really nice if you like real Chinese food. You can pay extra to have the crab legs included. They were superbe! Served at our table, when we asked for it. So enjoy just the buffet or pay the extra for the crab. Really they were more than worth the extra. Lots of restaurants have all... More

My husband and I ate there last week. They had a large selection, everything I tried was hot and fresh. We were seated right away, which is nice in a town where you almost always have to wait. The service was quick and the staff friendly. Overall, it was very enjoyable, and I would return again.

My wife and I were pleasantly overwhelmed with the array of choices on the Ocean Garden Buffet. This isn't a typical Chinese Buffet. Along with some of our standard favorites like general tsao's chicken, egg rolls and vegetable lo mein were unexpected treats like salt and pepper shrimp, seafood au gratin, and prime rib. On the fruit and salad bar... More

As a vegetarian, I'm always looking for restaurants that offer fresh options. I really enjoyed the hot grill where the fresh carrots, cabbages, water chestnuts, bean sprouts and onions that I chose were cooked for me with the sauce of my choice. (I chose the brown sauce, which was delicious, and there were 5 others.) For you carnivores, chicken, shrimp... More

Ocean Garden has been one of my local favorites for the past couple years, I think the most important thing with a buffet is consistency, & here they have just that. I can honestly say I've never had a bad meal here and the service isn't the typical stop by your table when they feel like it buffet type, they... More
