“Interesting style of "all you can eat"”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014 via mobile

This is a lot different than home town buffet. You get your bowls and fill them up with noodles, veggies, raw meat and sauces and then go stand in line and wait for the cooks to grab your bowls and wait for them to fry everything. And you can go as many times as you want. It can get pretty busy. It is really cheap which was nice but the variety of food wasn't very big. Pretty much everything that you can combine together turns out into various style of Asian noodles and that's it. The service was very nice and the cooks are doing a great job.

“Mediocre Mongolian Grill”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

OK, I am spoiled...I spent 10 years in Missoula and ate at least once a month at HuHot Mongolian grill and am completely spoiled.
Chang's in Salem is disorganized, it's filthy, the selection is limited and didn't taste fresh. the line was bizarrely winding around the unit where you get the food products for the chefs to grill for you. I had to say excuse me to people standing in line over and over to get to the food.
the sauces were "meh" and not a good variety of flavor profiles.
Chang's could use a lesson at HuHot---i think there's hope.

“Nice food, Nice time”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

This restaurant has a great set up. I liked that you get to chose what's in your food and they make it in front of you. It could be a little cleaner though...

“Make your own dish!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

Fun place to make your own meal! You choose your own meats, veges and sauces to create your very own masterpiece. They keep the choices well stocked and everything always seems very fresh.
