Even though this is a buffet restaurant they do offer a full menu.

The buffet is really outstanding with a large choice of Oriental food plus American dishes like pot-roast on the buffet. They stay on top of things and are constantly checking the buffet to insure everything is fresh and ready to eat. My only problem with the China Chef is I eat to much whenever... read more

The food is always great. The couple who runs it is super friendly. Food is prepared when ordered so it's always hot and fresh. Lunch specials are a great value. Soup,egg roll,main entree,and drink for around $6.00.

Having relocated from the NYC area, I didn't expect much. I was surprised. The hot and sour soup was very good. The General Tso chicken was a bit on the saucy side and lacked heat. The $5 lunch special was more than my money's worth.

My husband and I have both been to China so we know what real Chinese food tastes like. We are really picky about where we eat Chinese because so often Chinese restuarants in the U.S. tend to Americanize their food. Well, here it tastes about as close to "real" Chinese food as we have found anywhere. We LOVE this place!... More
