The selection of items was impressive, however, like many other reviewers have said, the food wasn't always hot (temp wise) or it was over cooked. The grill feature was good with many choices.

The Chinese Gourmet came highly recommended from my sister-in-law and since I love Chinese food and have even to China twice I was looking forward to going. When we (six in our party)walked in my first impression was WOW what a lot of choices. It is a buffet with choices of Chinese and American food. I couldn't wait to start... More

would say it's about on par with most other Chinese buffets in the Salt Lake area. It's good but nothing terribly special. I love the rolls rolled in sugar, when those are fresh and piping hot they are heaven. I'm also a fan of the crab and cream cheese wontons, they're very rich though so dipping them in a little...

The Chinese Gourmet is a large facility located at the intersection of 4500 and South State. Parking is easy and it's easy to find. Like most buffets, some of the food is good and some not so good - how long it has been on the steam table is an issue in this format - but they seemed careful about... More

If you don't mind the grossly overweight cattle herd; Friday night buffet has selections for everyone. Including MSG ! ! ! You need to request the manager's printout of Non-MSG items. The selections are vast. Most dishes are mediocre to good. Take your chances. First trip around the feed troughs should be for sampling. If one of your favorites is... More
