I admit it; I’m a sucker for Asian/Chinese buffets, and when I find a new one I will try it out. That’s how I got to Yummy Buffet. Unfortunately, despite the attractive decor, it doesn’t come close to meeting the expectations its website creates. To...begin with, I couldn’t find anything on the buffet at an acceptable temperature (except for some chicken wings that were just being put out). Although was no fried rice on offer, the variety of dishes was ok; but there was nothing I could identify as Korean. There was a respectable selection of sweets as well as some fruit and a few salads. By far the best option (which I didn’t discover until after I had eaten) is the “Mongolian” grill. Vegetables, meats and noodles are prepared to order and therefore served to you hot. The sushi rolls are also pretty good. None of them contain anything raw as far as I could tell, and they are kept on ice to maintain freshness. There are no really good Asian buffets in Chicago, but there are a couple that are ok, at similar price points. Sorry to say, Yummy Buffet is not one of them.More

This place has been close to where I lived and I had never gone. I visited it for the first time a couple of weeks ago and I’ve already went twice. You can get a lot of food for a cheap price and said food...is really delicious. They offer a lot of options and now I’m a fan. Recommended.More

I had to leave this review telling people about something YummyBuffet has been doing for a while. You can go up there between 8:45 to 9pm every night and get any type of food you want (except the seaweed) and fill the take-out box up...to the brim. They're going to throw the food away at the end of the day anyway, so why not sell it? This is the best deal in the city. I got 5 boxes for $15. You can pay with cash, debit or credit card, or even PayPal on buffetGo. They will honor the deal.More

Yummy Buffet is the best buffet in Chicago it is cheap , easy , and fast. Overall review of the restaurant is good. The service is great all you have to do is pay at the counter and you pretty much have the whole buffet...to choose what you want to eat. The food is delicious , the egg rolls are crisp. The chicken is sweet and nicely cooked, the ice cream is thick, and the sushi flavorful. Yummy buffet is always clean , and it looks beautiful. My favorite thing in the restaurant is the fountain they have when you enter the restaurant. The fountain is filled with fish and you can throw coins in there. My overall experience with this restaurant is excellent . A lot of memories can be made there and everything is great.More

This is one of the better Chinese buffets in terms of food diversity, cleanliness and service. The buffet overall is good. I recommend the most the sushi station which offers freshly made sushi in decent variety. Also, the fresh fry station is also something great....Convenient pricing.More
