There are many, many choices of a noodle salad style buffet, a fruits & jello squares buffet, like 4 Chinese-style food buffets, and a dessert bar buffet. Always have had good food there & decent service (though I don’t think the whole staff knows English)...More

I used to eat China Buffet almost every day before I moved to Twin Cities. I still visit there whenever I visit in Mankato. Variety foods, kind staff and good price.

Average fare, employees act like you are a burden. Wide range of foods though that can please many people.

Lots of choices of Chinese food, and also some more American-type food. Nice variety and it all tasted good.

My wife and I stopped here for dinner. This was our 1st time here. The restaurant offers off-street parking, clean restrooms and plenty of good tasting hot food. There is a wide variety of buffet items offered. Nice room decor adds to the dining experience....More

I never expect much from buffets but I wasn’t let down. All the food I ate was fairly decent. They even have American food for children. I would return.

Love going here the food is hot and very good. Only downside is they really need to clean better. The chairs and tables are always sticky.

This facility is in a shopping center, but don't let the exterior fool you. The price was reasonable, large dining area, and good selection of food items. The items were hot and filled. They even have hard ice cream for dessert.
