I’ve tried this place twice now, different days and times and both times the food was sparse and what food you do get was cold. The cut up bananas with the red sauce was black! Flies all over the food . Now I know why...the place is always dead. The employees could use a class on customer service as well. I will never go back. Yuck!More

the service was the worst, they wouldn't refill a water glass. The Beef was like eating jerky. The sauces on everything was like paste, it was so thick. My wife ask for the trays to be refilled because everything was empty and the server was...to busy texting. If you like sweet on everything this is the place to go.More

I went to the dinner buffet around 6 pm. All the food was cold. Any food that was fried was hard as a rock. It like they took everything off the lunch buffet and refried it. The chicken satay looks like they have been sitting...there from a week ago. Eat at your own risk.More

The food was average for a Chinese buffet. I enjoyed it while it lasted. It gave me severe gastrointestinal distress, literally after eating. I was in so much pain, I was nauseated. I couldn't even get up from the table for a bit. My husband...got up to pay the bill and came back for me. I didn't want to use the busy bathroom & by the smell of it, I wasn't the only one with issues. I wound up getting to the truck and having to find a restroom immediately. My husband wound up needing to use the restroom as well, it just didn't hit him as fast and hard. Chinese food syndrome from an overload of MSG no doubt! We will NEVER eat here again!More

It may be just me and what i am used to but for an asian food buffet this was a pretty big buffet with a lot of choices !! The food was good and there was plenty of it. No empty bins ( like one...place i lived near in mississippi, it was far bigger than this but at least half the food bins were empty every time we went there) and a good variety to choose from. And when your ready for dessert dont forget to look in and near the back corner of the area, there is a freezer back there with ice cream cups and sandwiches and cookies and stuff. And make sure to read the signs on the glass above each item, some of the items were not what i thought they were. Pepsi products here FYI. (Yuk) Pretty good place !!More

I had dinner here a few years ago and it was great! It does NOT smell like a cheap Asian place at all. Wide variety and the crab legs were awesome. However, their website sucks and nobody ever answer's the phone! I've been trying to...view the Sunday brunch menu. All I can find is the fact that they have a Sunday brunch and the prices. Yeah duh! I am looking for a place to bring my entire family that will please everyone. About 25-30 people. I also wanted to give them a "heads up" of a very large party coming in. Since I can't get any answers, I guess we will find another place. :(More

You can’t go wrong at china house Buffett big selection of sushi, apps, salads and the favorites dishes. Plenty of seating with great service. Buffett items were fresh and hot and nice selection of deserts. If you are stopping in Bass Pro shop or 5.11...Tactile this is in the same parking lot. Easy in and easy out.More

"Sushi" consists of a few rolls. Shrimp is overcooked and dry. Beef is ultra fatty. Not worth the time or money.

Average food, average price, average cleanliness. JACB, for Just Another Chinese Buffet. Problem here in St. Charles is that there AREN'T any really good Chinese food buffets. Matter of fact, I'm looking for one, and have been for several years. Don't get me wrong...average is...acceptable, and being a buffet, there is always sufficient nutrients to get me through the day, but I want to say...DAYYUM that was good! I can't here.More

The food was nothing to wrote home about and was just average. It's better than the Chinese food places you find in a mall (you know what I'm talking about), but not as good as a sit-down, made to order, Chinese meal. The spicy dishes...were not very spicy but there was a wide variety of options from chicken, to beef, to seafood, and even frog. The soup was the most traditional recipe of the items but they were all relatively decent. The service was very prompt and made sure dishes were cleared frequently, drinks were kept full, and asked if we needed anything else. The overall value was a fair price for what we received and I would consider eating there again if in the mood for a quick Chinese meal.More

Found this place as the restaurant we we're going to was closed. Arrived at 12:30 and we were seated. Standard Chinese food including sushi. Food was fresh, warm and tasty. Service was very good. Our drinks were regularly refilled and plates removed when empty. We...sat and talked but didn't feel rushed to leave. Saturday lunch was $8 per person. Not bad. We will return.More
