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

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

Dont waste your time or money. The food was cold. The service SUCKS. None of the waitresses could speak English. There was only 1 scoop for 6 different flavored ice creams. The fruit was old and brown. The bathroom was HIDEOUS! The smell of urine slapped you in the face upon entering the door. It was nauseating. There was bloody... More

We have visited several times in the past few years. But we had stopped because the food tasted old. So it has been at least a year. My son said he felt nauseous, after eating one plate. I thought he was being dramatic. However, I got some rice and it smelt and tasted like plastic. The salmon was greenish brown.... More
