Decent Buffet

Stopped by Chen's Buffet while in Canton for Trade Days. Found their food typical of Chinese buffets with the exception that the food was HOT! Usually places like this have cold or left over items. Thy had a good selection from which to choose. I would recommend Chen's if you're looking for... read more

Visited the restaurant on a Monday night...not many people dining at this establishment. The décor is dated, but the food is o.k. to fairly good (but certainly not that great). If you enjoy sushi & cooked fish dishes, you may want to try this place, but I am not a big fan of seafood at Chinese restaurants. They do at... More

Decent food for the price. Good service, and lots to pick from. Everything is fresh and well kept. The atmosphere is a little lacking, but your not there for the atmosphere; its an all you can eat buffet. There is a little something for everyone, including children.

We call this place bug and noodle because we were eating there and my sons girlfriend found a bug in her food. When i brought this to the staffs attention they acted like it was no big deal and just walked off know some cultures eat bugs but we don't. Won't ever eat here again.

Their Crab legs were put on ice so it was hard to pull the meat out. and their stuffed shrimp tasted like sausage (not a fan). My husband thought the sesame chicken was awful, which is always is his go to at a Chinese buffet. Although, We did think their sushi was good.

I've eaten at a lot of Chinese buffet's all over the place, after finding this one on trip advisor, I thought i'd check it out, since there aren't exactly a plethora of options for Chinese buffet's in this area. The food is pretty much the typical buffet items you see anywhere else, but it was all very hot and very... More

Very simple restaurant, clean and food is kept fresh on the buffet. A good deal, especially if you eat a lot (we don't). Worth the price and friendly help for a buffet.

My husband and I had been looking for another Chinese buffet since the closing of our favorite nearby restaurant. This place was almost identical to it...in the atmosphere, food variety and pricing so, we were THRILLED when we found this restaurant. It's difficult keeping food hot on steam tables but the food here was hot and fresh and didn't look... More
