“Above Average”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

My family has dined at this restaurant many times over the years and the food has always been what I would rate as above average for Chinese fare. We normally get take-out but during the times we have dined in, the service has always been top notch.

“Not too bad.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Only Buffet, was passing through town and had not tried this one before. If you are really hungry and on a tight budget and not real fussy about food this is the place. Buffet was around 12 dollars per person, all you can eat. My best advice, sample a small amount of items you think you will like then choose. Won ton soup was horrible, but some of the entrees were OK, the fried items were the best. (not the best choice..but if hungry..you will eat it). The ribs were not bad, a little tough but not fatty. Chicken dishes were pretty tasty, fried rice was good...enough to get you by and the deserts were the best part of the meal. I am not a real fussy eater so if you are looking for fine chinese this is probably not the place. I did see many people make 7-8 trips to the tables with mounds of food, but I would say this is a "quantity" rather than "quality" dining adventure. Staff were very friendly and seemed like there were a fair amount of locals here.

“Good / Average Chinese Buffet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

China Palace of Lewisburg has a good selection of Chinese food to choose from. Overall the food is pretty good. It's nice to go there if you want something good to eat and don't want to wait for it.

“Food was ok, Service Good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

Pretty standard Chinese fare in a buffet-style restaurant, although they did have several items, including a fried section with cheese bites, potatoes, etc.

They did have four different types of sush on the buffet, which was nice.

Service was good. My total was $12.32 for dinner buffet, drink, and tax.

I didn't try their "bubble teas", which seems to be something which could set the restaurant apart from other Chinese buffets.

“Food was decent for this area”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

The food on the buffet are OK at this restaurant especially for this rural area they are in. Food is never hot but what can you expect at a buffet. Servers are friendly and quick.
