“Good, consistent value for smorgesbord”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Would have liked to order off a menu, but was discouraged in doing this by the people whom I was dining.

“Good Place to Eat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

On my way back from Ocean City to New York we stopped at this restaurant. I'm really glad I did. In the lobby as you enter there is a "pond" with fishes and a small water fall. The place is clean, the staff is friendly, the service is fast and best of all the food is great and the prices even better. There is plenty of seating area, tables and booths. They provide a wide selection of different types of food, including desserts. As a side note, this restaurant is across from the Tangers Outlets! Shop then eat!

“Surprisingly very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Chinese buffets are frequently filled with poorly cooked, salty, oily food. Not the case here. The variety here was exceptional, price was very reasonable and the quality of the food was very good. I would definitely go back. Much better than expected.

“Great food and plenty of variety”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

This fun buffet is a favorite for any visitor, with lots of choices, a nice price for the all-you-care-to-eat diner, and a fine a la carte menu. Fresh, tasty food at a reasonable price!

“Very Good Overall”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2012

We have visited this establishment on three occasions and with the exception of the last visit, the food was exceptional, the service was fine (it's a self serve buffet) and the environment was comfortable and clean. On our first two visits the three main serving stations were filled with a fresh, still-steaming variety of mostly asian/chinese dishes. So far I have sampled the pepper steak the goyoza and dim-sum the sauteed string beans, the peel away shrimp, the pork with scallions, the peanut chicken, general "chows" chicken, honey chicken, the sushi, the baked (stuffed) shrimp, and on and on. Everything was consistently authentic, fresh and well prepared. I never expect restaurant quality food at a Chinese Buffet, but this place delivers just that. The only minor negative was our last visit, which was memorial day. The quality of the offerings was up to par, but the serving trays were not as swiftly re-filled and the food not as fresh and hot as I grown used to. All in all, the chinatown buffet and grill is a fine place to satisfy that urge for chinese food.
