My husband and I have been eating at China Inn for 11 years and we have never been disappointed! They have an extensive menu, for take out, but our favorite is their buffet. Incredible calue, especially if you fill a to go box. It's a small buffet but everything is delicious! Love it!

Periods between lunch and dinner can sometimes find the buffet less than stellar, but still fair. During... More

didn't like the food being served on paper plates with plastic utensils. Don't know if it's still this way, but I wasn't impressed.
