We like to stick to 1 Chinese food restaurant in fear of getting sick. We went out on a limb and decided to try here. Actually shocked me! Amazing egg rolls. Great chicken and tender beef. Clean establishment. Give it a try!

I was visiting Rapid City and was craving Chinese food. I was going to order from Golden Phoenix, but my husband thought it might be further and a reviewer said he thought China Luck was better. I ordered the Schezuan Beef, Ma Po Tofu, and wonton soup. When I opened the container and saw the food, I was already disappointed.... More

May try again. Stopped in here for first time just as buffet ended, and didn't really know they had one until it was too late. It looked great as they were clearing it off. My bad. Partner thought her Chinese meal was good. I ordered a hamburger. It was big, but no flavor or garnishings. Didn't finish. Won't try that... More

Came here for lunch buffet on a Tuesday. Food had been sitting out for so long all the fried foods were rock solid and inedible. All the sauced main dishes were gelatinous goop that all looked the same. Had probably been sitting out a long time as well. Did manage to try a fresh egg roll - shouldn't have bothered.... More

I've been several times for lunch and fine their food delicious. The selection is large and diverse. I did find their sushi to be dried out but was there late for lunch.

I have visited the buffet many times, as well as ordered takeout at night quite frequently. Food is always fresh and tastes great. The service is always friendly, and the owner gets to know everyone on a first name basis and even remembers what you order. I won't order Chinese from anywhere else in Rapid City. Is this the same... More

We headed to China Luck for lunch. The advertised $1 beer specials were highly visible. The ads may have been a hint that you better enjoy some alcohol with your meal to make it better. The host/cash register area was cluttered and appeared unorganized. The decor was below average. As we headed to the buffet line, we saw a number... More

Will return often, service was great, fast. The amount of food for the price was phenomenal, I am a big eater but had a nice lunch for the next day with the left overs! The only thing that needs a tweak is the front entry, needs a face lift and some decoration. The menu has a huge selection for all... More

We LOVE Chinese food. Unfortunately, there are some really bad Chinese restaurants in Rapid City. Not so with China Luck! We dine here regularly and each time try something new. Johnny and his staff are always pleasant and provide exceptional service. You simply MUST try them the next time you are in Rapid City!! (the Walnut Shrimp is a total... More
