About what you would expect

It is a Buffet.... The restaurant is starting to look a little worn, but appears to be clean. The food is GOOD.

The wait staff is always very nice, helpful and attentive. The restaurant is always clean. The buffet is always stocked, clean and hot. The fruit and sushi bar is cold and clean. I really enjoy eating at this restaurant.

It is your typical Chinese buffet stop. Food is always good. They check the food on the buffet frequently. Offer a variety of dishes, soups, desserts. Coconut Shrimp is my favorite. It isn't a huge grand buffet but big enough for a good variety of choices. Waitstaff has always been friendly.

Not horrible - normal Chinese fare - most of the food seems fresh. Buffet is clean and there is a lot of variety. Sushi was okay /- pretty fresh. Price is very reasonable and I would ezf here again.

Good buffet and very reasonable prices. Friendly staff. They have a small back room to accommodate small parties. The main dining room is large. Clean, comfortable establishment.

This restaurant is normally quiet and clean. I dine there about once per month and don't have anything to complain about. However there isn't much to brag about either. The food is good although not exceptional. I have found some dirty dishes at the buffet, but who hasn't when eating a buffet. The buffet is quite small but does have... 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

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 Chinese Buffet.

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.
