I’ve given this place more chances than I should have. If you like paying too much and getting sick, then this is for you. Look at my other reviews and you will see I am never negative on restaurants. They deserve the negative.

Food at the buffet was average but nothing was bad. In fact have been to many other far more pricier places for less good food. The interior is terrible. When does it become ok for duck tape to fix chairs and interior? I understand margins...are slim but at a certain point when care for the interior is gone, how much care and passion for food is left? Prices for the buffet were low, under 3 for free, 3 to 6 for $3.59 and for 2 adults under $14More

This Chinese restaurant is only good if you go at lunch or on weekends. The dinner food is just leftovers from lunch and is dry and cold. I will never eat there for dinner unless it is on the weekend when there is sometimes fresher...food. The service is ok there. The people are really not friendly. This is one of the worst Chinese places I have ever ate at.More

When this store opened it was clean and the buffet was fresh. Now the tables are sticky, the food is dried out looking on the buffet. The last two times we there everyone got sick. Not a place I will be returning - sad to...give this review because 10 years ago it was a great family placeMore

The China Buffet is the only Chinese restaurant in Russellville, and it's just...well, average. It's your typical, cookie-cutter Chinese buffet. Nothing particularly stands out about it, aside form the fact that whenever I've been there, the food seems like it;s been sitting for a few...hours, at the very least. Pricing is, again, average, compared to other buffets, but there are better options within half an hour or so driving distance.More

Just an average Chinese buffet/menu joint. Nothing special. Not even a huge offering at the buffet. But it is the only Chinese place for 20 miles and the food is decent. Prices are typical. Many go there just for a change in what is available...in Russellville. It is pretty popular at lunch since it is fast.More

You will be greeted at the door and seated in smoking side or non-smoking side of the restaurant. Go for the buffet and eat some American dishes and a variety of Chinese dishes. The food is always fresh and hot.

Such a huge selection of Asian and American food that everyone will find plenty to eat! Wait staff is friendly and gracious! Eat here with family and we all leave stuffed! Great place for families with kids, plenty of room for seating and unpretentious!

Went to the resurant and ate the Buffett. The food was good and plenty of it. I was not real impressed they allowed smoking in the restaurant the smell of cigarettes was all over the place even though there was a non smoking area.

My favorite dish here is shrimp fried rice. Always good food here every time I eat here. I also many times get takeout here. Very friendly helpful staff. I have a hearing problem and they are understanding and helpful.

The buffet here is average. The food isn't great but it isn't bad, either. This seems to be the only "Chinese" food place in town, so if that's what you want, this will be the only place to get it.
