A Chinese-oriented buffet but always tasty, always excellent quality, and a very good selection and wide variety of foods. Lots of room for the family, wide isles between the tables, and attentive service. MY FAVORITE meal in the area.

Great dinner selection and quality - trays were constantly being rotated and refreshed, and the quality and selection were better than most buffets I've visited. Very pricey for a buffet, though - be ready to pay @ $20 or more a person if you include a drink. There was a line out the door on a Saturday @ 5, and... More

I usually visit this place for their food. They have a wide variety of dishes. All are delicious. The last time that I ate at this place, I was disappointed. However, they have improve their dishes and services. The dishes were now tasty. They have a selection of chinese dishes, sushis, and seafoods.

I really don't care for buffets, but at least this one had a lot to choose from. Blue crabs, crab legs, oysters on the half and decent sushi. It was OK and clean.

I do enjoy Chinese Buffets and this one had lots of variety. However their location address did not match with what the GPS said so I had to "happen upon" it. I hope they fix that. As far as the food was concerned, they have Peking Duck on the buffet which is somewhat dry but still palatable. I also enjoyed... More

The buffet has a nice atmosphere. Went during the lunch buffet. I have been here about 4 times, and the food is always good. Staff is very nice. If you like seafood they have a varied selection along with other Chinese dishes and fresh fruits. They also have a grill where you can customize what you would like them to... More

This is a good place to eat when going shopping at the outlet malls or going to the beach. The Chinatown Buffet is on the seaside of Rt. 1 with plenty of parking spaces in the area and can serve big group easily. Food is the combination of Chinese, American and sushi (Japanese) and all you can eat. This place... More
