Having been here before I visited yesterday with friends who were visiting the area. On arrival we were told that we had to pay upfront no explanation given asked why and they said people had left without paying . This indicates that as soon as you arrive they are already sAying you are a thief. The service was abrupt thereafter.... More

Popped in for the all inportant Bank Holiday meal...and very nice it was too. Pleasently surprised at the number of pre paid customers (lol) all enjoying their meals. Once again, 5*`s for the occasion.

Food here has always been nice. I wouldn't usually visit a Chinese just for the chips but I love, love, love the chips here! Great choice and staff are always re-filling the trays. Good value!

Despite this being outside of the centre of town its nicely priced and served up good food. In my opinion this is the best buffet in Middlesbrough. Seems like they've bit hit with a lot of people not paying recently and thus require you to pay up front now. I recommend you try out the Crispy Duck and the Honey... More

I have to say that this Chinese restaurant has to be the worst I have ever visited, sat down and was asked on arrival to pay up front for my purchase of drinks along with the food I hadn't consumed YET, soup was watery, rice was hard, choice of food available was disgraceful very limited portions. £32 for two adults,...

I visited New China Buffet King with colleagues after work one evening, as we were seated the restaurant looked clean and tidy, and we were quickly able to order drinks, and receive them. At this time I requested a set of chopsticks, and the wait staff were happy to oblige, but when I opened my chopsticks I discovered that they... More

Visited here on Thursday, 30 March 2016, for lunch with friends. The decor is a bit dated, but the food looks and tastes fresh, does what it says on the tin for an all-you-can-eat Chinese buffet, worth a stop if you are hungry I need to eat in a rush.

Thank Rachel B
