“Finally, hot food at a buffet!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

My husband and I were in South Daytona Beach and we adore chinese buffet. The hotel concierge recommended Ocean Buffet and what a treat it was. The assortment of food was amazing and the food was HOT! Usually in a buffet it is luke warm at best; this was terrific. Our server was a gentlemen named Gao Yu Feng a visiting student from Rhode Island University studying restaurant management. He couldnt have picked a better place to learn...amazing service and cuisine.

“Best of the Chinese American Buffets”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

We stumbled upon this gem and have been back multiple times. Food is a notch above the average Buffet, with the addition of Sushi Bar, Soup Bar, and Wok/Hibachi. Value is spectacular @$7.50 for lunch and $11 for dinner. Best bet for families with picky eaters...selection/variety should please everybody.

“Nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012 via mobile

Place was clean. The sushi is very low grade, didn't take a chance eating it. The rest if buffet is standard issue low budget. The flavor was ok, although a little salty. I won't be back. There was nothing really bad, just nothing really good either. Should have went with the wife's first suggestion and went to Duffs in the mall down the street.

“Wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

Lots of made right before you sushi (even in the middle of the afternoon). So well done. Plenty of hot and cold Chinese and other great buffet foods. 7 buffet bars. Friendly and extremely polite staff. Love this place.
