“Great buffet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

We went to New China Buffet for the first time this month and we're sure it won't be the last. We were in Srfside Beach getting our computer fixed and realized how close Surfside was to our hotel in the south end of Myrtle Beach and so we tried New China Buffet. The food is excellent and there is so much variety - 120 items. The price was very good as well ($8.99) and the service was good too. If you want crab legs it is $9 more but we usually never get crab legs because we find them hard to eat. We plan on going back again next time we're in Myrtle Beach.

“Good for the price; great choices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

We have eaten here several times over the past few years and also changed to Ocean Garden Buffet for a while. The atmosphere is more upscale at Ocean Garden, but the consistency and variety of the selections is better at New China. It is typical Chinese buffet food that is average to good, fresh and hot.

Seniors get a discount at lunch so that two can eat for around $13. The wait staff was courteous and efficient. At lunch get there early or late because the crowd is usually lined up at the door around noon.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

This is the best Chinese buffet in the area. I would suggest going before dinner when the price goes up. They have everything you could want and the staff is Asian.

“Always a Line”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

Being from out of town, we chose a Chinese resturant with lots of local plates in the parking lot. Repeat business means good food. We were not disappointed. The line for seating was out the door, but we were seated quite fast. The food was good, not the best, but very tasty. There was a lot to chose from and I wish I had been hungrier. As for the service, it was ok, not the best. But when its a buffet it really doesn't matter. The tables were a little sticky, you might consider bringing your own wipes, but the price is very cheap!
