Nice local place to eat

We ate here for lunch on Sunday November 2, 2014 and we were able to find a table right away. There were certainly a lot of choices for meat eaters. I was happy to see they had a Mongolian grill so I was able to get plenty of veggies for them to cook for me and add my own choice... read more

The Mongolian BBQ is great but the buffet is lacking. Wife likes the Sushi. Generals chicken and sesame chicken sit side by side. Taste the same except one has sesame seeds. Some of the food is cold and depending on what time you arrive some of the food has been there awhile. Staff keeps reaching across your food to get... More

The food was fresh, hot and tasty. The establishment was clean and orderly. The food was consistent with other Chinese restaurants I've visited and reviewed. The dining room temperature was a bit warm but having lived in Asia I can understand since most restaurants are typically not air conditioned. This restaurant did have an air conditioner. My point is that... More

Food was cold. I told the server and the girl at the desk that the food was cold and got the rely that "we just turn up air conditioner". That was it, no sorry, nothing. Cold fried chicken wings, egg rolls and crab wonton are really nasty. The soup was hot... can't say much for the taste though. We have... More

Since we discovered this buffet a few months ago, we eat there every Saturday. The food and selection are great and even my picky kids love it. The foos is always fresh and hot as well. Nothing bad to say except I wish the waitresses spoke better English, very hard to communicate with them.

When in Orange Park (usually on a monthly basis) we have lunch at China Buffet. All the food is fresh and the Mongolian BBQ and sushi is the best in the area.

Too many choices!!! We love the place, the service is always friendly and they fill your glass continuously. There are so many selections along with a Mongolian BBQ where you can choose your food and the cook will cook it right there. They have 4 soups and a decent desert table. Also Ice creams. The shrimp and mussels are always... More
