Great Chinese Food

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... read 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

Stopped and got takeout to eat at the campsite our first night in the hills. They gave us plates, napkins and silverware.

We discovered this restaurant quite accidentally looking for another store. We found a great buffet at a reasonable price. A very pleasant and helpful staff.

Maybe my husband and I are just used to good food from where we are from, but this place was awful. The food sat under heat lamps, all dried out. We both love General Tso Chicken, but they have General Chicken here, which tastes like it has been baked in ketchup. Completely disgusting. Don't waste your time here. Go to... More

I have to admit. The food was pretty good for what I was expecting I would get in Rapid City. I don't exactly remember what we ordered, but I know it was a fish dish and a meat dish. Both very good, very big, and very cheap. My dad was commenting that he could not possibly get so much for... More

We always seek out local Chinese buffet when travelling - chose this one based on TripAdvisor ratings and, well....it's ok, but nothing that we'll put on the list as a return stop when in the area again. Restaurant is in a strip mall and while Google Maps didn't give correct directions, we were able to find it with a little... More
