The parking lot was packed and we had to wait for table. This was on a Monday so imagine on a weekend. The food was superb, the restaurant was very clean and the service was very good. This was the best Chinese restaurant we have been to and we will definitely eat here again.

We were out shopping at the beach recently and at lunch time we began to discuss lunch options. We drove by New China Buffet and decided to try it. The interior was average as the business is located in an older building. They have an all you can eat buffet and they advertise 120 items. We were seated and waited... More

As food started to get low one of the worker would start to notify the kitchen via a microphone. Strongly recommend and definiately will patronized when in the... More

There are 110 items at this Chinese buffet. Conveniently located with ample parking. Always a lot of cars, which means good food. Very clean restaurant & restrooms. This is one of the better Chinese restaurants along the Grand Strand.

We usually visit this restaurant on our three to four visits to Myrtle Beach during the season and in the past everything has been pretty good. However, our October 2014 visit didn't go too well. The offerings were not as varied and the quality was down several notches. The biggest offense was the waitress. She could barely speak the language…and... More

I probably should have checked with the desk clerk before I went to New China. Lesson learned. I have had much better Chinese buffets. There were some high points however. The hot and sour soup was very good as were the black bean mussels and steamed octopus. The crawfish weren't bad either. Don't go for the sushi. I don't know... More

Looking for an inexpensive meal while at the beach the wife and I stopped in at New China for dinner. The food, atmosphere and price were very predictable for a Chinese buffet.
