“Great Chinese/Sushi/Dim Sum buffet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2012

My favorite Chinese buffet of all time. They have great seafood - clams, shrimp, mussels, oysters, salmon. They have a good variety of sushi and dim sum. They have a choice of six soups, cantonese favorites, salad and dessert. I have eaten their dozens of times and have never had a bad meal. It is also inexpensive for all the amazing food choices. Located just north of I-595 on University Dr.

“Busy place--not sure why!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2012

Went to Dragon Gourmet for dinner in late 2011. Was a mistake. Service was fine; it is a buffet after all. Some of the food was OK, and some of it was just not interesting or tasty, not bad per se. Many of the items were not well labeled. but the biggest problem, and the reason for the low rating was that the place was just not clean. I realize it is a busy place, but from the serving area to the ice cream scoop to the floors to the bathrooms, the place was not clean. Bathroom was absolutely filthy. Place just felt greasy and dirty. I would not go here again!

“Tasty food - price a little high”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2011

I thought the price was a little high - but that is because I've recently moved to FL (from WV) and our all you can eat Chinese buffets are less than $12 PP. When you compare this Chinese buffet to ones in the surrounding area in FL, the price might be 'spot on'. Can't say.

Food - was really good. Wide variety. Food areas were filled up promptly when dishes were low. Food area was very clean as was the rest of the restaurant.

Only thing that I thought was peculiar was that the host/hostess sat Asians in the front of the restaurant and then seated everyone else in the back of the restaurant. We felt a bit segregated.

“A good value all you can eat Chinese food option”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2011

The decor of the restaurant is pretty plain. However, the buffet selection of Chinese and Japanese food is almost overwhelming in choice. The quality, while not haute cuisine, is very good. Most of the time, the service is good, but the waiters' English is limited. Overall, a good value for a casual family meal out.

“Fresh Food Service was "so-so"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2010

Vacationing with our family - we found this Chinese Buffet to be fresh and pretty good food. We went on a Sunday evening so it was fairly busy. This may have attributed to the freshness of the food.....High rotation. They had a very good selection and I like the placement of the buffet. Most buffet restaurants have the food placed in the "midst" of booths and tables. This restaurant has all the food in a large separate room. Remember - this is a BUFFET....dont go there with caviar dreams! Keep it in perspective!....I would recommend
