I would advise the buffet which is only for lunch, but it is 7 days a week. It is around $9.00 per person. They have some very tasty food BUT the items of the buffet go very very fast and they do not seem in that much of a hurry to re-fill. Other then that the place is a great... More

Food was very good... Flavorful and plentiful... We wanted something besides New England seafood tonight and this was a good choice .. Portions were large! Service was very good.. Our waitress was super sweet and food was served quickly!

meal started off on a good trend with excellent fried wonton. Perfectly made. But then.. Waiter recommended the crispy duck (interestingly the most expensive on the menu). It was not crispy but soggy and fatty. It had little flavor. Service poor. Waited 5 min to be seated, finally took a table. Waiter came and ok until food served. Never saw... More

First time ordering from China Coast. The food was ready in under 15 minutes and was excellent. My favourite thing in the world is Crab Rangoons and they made them perfectly. The right amount of filling, and Delish! We ordered the Pu Pu for two, and there was plenty of food, and only $20. The Chinese ribs were larger than... More

Stopped in for lunch on a Friday around 1pm. We were just passing through Rockland and stopped in at the local mall and noticed this restaurant and decided to give it a try. Typical Chinese restaurant for a shopping mall. Young staff, not overly friendly, other then hello and what do you want to drink we were not spoken too.... More

This is a good place for a fast lunch. You can take out an order from the buffet for a price per pound.

Today, it was as though a vat of sugar had fallen into most of the food. There is no excuse for what was served up as part of the buffet. The food here can be on the level of that of any quality Chinese restaurant, but it isn't. Customers, however, will add more sweet sauce to the already-sweet food. Mounds... More

China coast has always been my favorite. As I kid Sunday after church we'd all go down to our favorite Chinese buffet. Crab rangoons are good. Only think I would say, takeout is expensive. Stick to the buffet. :)
