Okay chinese food

My family and I visited the New China buffet on the 24th of June at approx. 11:30 A.M. The place was clean and well stocked I had a lot of sushi that was pretty good. I ate California rolls which were very tasty. I had the sushi with rice with the shrimp on top and most others except the rolls... read more

My husband wanted to try this local restaurant again, and I reluctantly agreed. We arrived at 5:30 pm on a Friday evening. We were seated quickly, and put in our drink orders. We then went up to the Buffet. Being Friday night, and during "dinner time", we expected to see and eat fresh, hot food! We were wrong. I tried... More

Okay, so perhaps I'm too critical? About half the buffet pans were empty. Who knows? Maybe there was good stuff there. You have to use your imagination. Egg rolls are not supposed to be sticky / chewy like bubble gum, or is it just me? $10 a pop for dinner. I suggest the steak house down the road - or... More
