“Large Buffet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

Definitely a wide assortment for Chinese food. This is a great place to go with a large appetite. Also, if you have people in your crowd that do not enjoy Chinese food, they have American options on the buffet.

“Decent Food at a decent Price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

While its not the most authentic Chinese. It is however one of the best places in the area to get good food at a decent price compared to most. The Hibachi Grill is where you get the best food compared to the rest of the buffet which is typical buffet food.

“Chineese Buffet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

One of the few left in town. Use to go to Hong Kong Buffet all the time, but they had to close for personal reasons. The Gourmet Buffet is the Next Best Place to dine! If you have sensitivities to perfumes and such ...you may want to choose a table rather than a booth! Last time there, someone bathed in perfume to which I could not breath and was becoming very sick! I had to leave the restaurant. The food is very good, it is semi-clean and most of the staff do not speak good English at all. Still, the food is very good!

If you are looking for selection this is your place, however food is sub par, not good Chinese, and everything else tastes like its off a bad buffet ( it is a buffet)

“Glad I stopped”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

One of the best buffets in the area, happened upon it while shopping in Altoona and decided to give it a try. Place was very busy but was seated right away, waitresses were always there keeping drinks full and removing plates. Food was very good, a very good selection and also suschi bar.
Will definatly go back when I am in the area.
