My friends and I used to go to China Garden all of the time when I was in college. Now, 10 years later, I'm delighted to say that it is bigger and better. The buffet has such a wide variety of dishes to choose from that every family member will be happy. The best treat is the sushi bar -... More

I am not a fan of buffet style restaurants because food isn't cooked to order. I found the dinner selections to be slightly less than fresh but I blame that on the time of evening that we came (after 7:30pm). But I will say that my son enjoyed his dinner. I tasted a couple different desserts and found the plain... More

At lunch there were lots of choices. The entire time we were eating there were at least 2 people tending to the buffet. They were either restocking or wiping up spills. Food was hot. Sushi bar had a number of different offerings. Floors clean. Eight different ice cream choices. We would return.

I will not order from here again. We were in town visiting and decided to order from here. Once we placed our order it took them an hour and 30 minutes (almost 40 minutes late) to deliver our food, part of what we received was cold and soggy and some of it was missing. I called and asked for it... More

This was our first stop at China Garden and we enjoyed it a lot. The food on the buffet table was up to temperature, it was delightfully tasty -- too often these Chinese buffets tone down the seasoning until all you can taste is garlic -- and the buffet was kept stocked, clear of food scraps, etc. I wish I...

The Buffett was very well stocked and had a large variety of sushi. The servers were reasonably attentive and the food was hot. Price was reasonable. I would go back.

With the variety of good food on the buffet, you are not going to leave hungry! Selections include oriental and non-oriental dishes, so everyone will leave happ.

I've eaten at several Chinese buffet-style restaurants and found this one to be as good or a little better than most. The staff was friendly and greeted me upon entry. Wait-staff wasted no time in getting my drink order and was very attentive throughout the meal process. The food bar was nicely stocked with a variety of items and was... More

I went to China Garden about 2 weeks ago with a friend of mine. We were starving and by this being one of the only 2 buffets within a 30 minute radius, we gave it a shot. After the drinks were given, we helped ourselves to the cooking stations. Pans were 3/4 EMPTY. Food looked tired under the lights. Hardly... More

The experience here is about the equivalent of sticking your head in a window and having a feed bag attached. The food is insipid, unhealthy, and of bad quality. It's often cold. The buffet always looks like a wreck and the lighting is bad. The staff is not warm at all. The only thing saving it is it's cheap.
