We loved the food and the many varieties Available. Wonderful fresh fish, dim sum baskets, Japanese cuisine, fresh cooked dishes etc. A wonderful variety to choose from. The desserts were good too. However we found it expensive at $63 a head when you can not eat that amount of food in the time you are there, unless you go very... More

We got there, paid I think $69 for each and stuffed ourselves with awesome Asian food from China, Taiwan, Japan sushi,... More

We last came here two years ago and while the food was okay, we were disappointed with the overall feel of the place. We felt we were being hurried along in an attempt to free up our table for the next group. Went back tonight and there's now a much more relaxed atmosphere. Very helpful staff and no sense of...

If you enjoy Asian food then China Bar is the place to visit. For around $67 you can eat to your hearts delight with this 'all you can eat buffet'. There is an area where one can savour oysters au naturel, crab or other delicacies of the sea. For those who prefer their food cooked you can put together your... More

Having been to the China Bar outlets in Box Hill and Glen Waverley, I wasn't excited going to their signature restaurant which is the only one that offered buffet/ 'all you can eat' meals. We went here for a Friday lunch and the place was huge with lots of Asian diners (a good sign). There were several choices, from actually... More

I took my husband here for dinner for his birthday and he was very impressed. The restaurant is large but tastefully decorated so doesn't feel like a barn. The buffet is spread out in several zones so there was plenty of room to move around and the food was easily accessed. The only slight delay was at the fresh seafood... More
