I have went here to eat on and off years. The food does taste good. The food is pretty consistent, but not always warm on the buffet. The wait staff needs a lesson is making a person feel welcome. Other than the wait staff i would recommend this Chinese food.

I stopped here for lunch and was disappointed on almost every level. First, there was no indicator that lunch was buffet only or at least my server didn't give me the option of ordering off the menu. Had I known it was a buffet, I would have looked at their meager offering and gone somewhere else. The food was bland,... More

I have been eating here for years and they have been consistently excellent. This one of the best buffets in the area and their prices are very reasonable.

Food is hot and not over cooked like a lot of buffets. Vegetables still have some color to them. Lots of flavor.

The restaurant is an OK Chinese restaurant. I am not impressed with their food. I am not familiar with this area. I cannot offer alternative recommendations. I actually will recommend to try a non-Chinese restaurant instead of China Garden.

Travelling through central California, needed a meal and this place had good reviews. Ordered Vegetable Lo Mein and Schezuan Tofu, expressly stating that the were not to contain any animal products, and restating clearly that there should be no egg or meat in either dish. Have ordered this combo coast to coast and never gone wrong for my dietary preference,... More

Very friendly and helpful staff. Food is very good and delicious. They have a large buffet with many hot and cold chooses. Large banquet room. Reasonable prices. The only possible critique would be, the food off the menu is better than the buffet. But this is true of most restaurants.

And if it wasn't for Cho's Chow Mein and certain faves of mine that China Garden doesn't offer, I'd switch restaurants. China Garden has the Best Pot Stickers and deep Fried Calamari and the Scallops are Amazing!
