Dragon Buffet reopened January 24, 2019, and I thought the quality and selection of lunch food was much better than what had been served prior to closing last fall. I thought the atypical "barbecue chicken" was very tasty and I was pleased to see mussels,...More

This is going to brief; "go somewhere else"! Very few Chinese dishes scattered across the buffet bars, mostly low-cost filler items such as fried mozzarella sticks, french fries, fried biscuits, some of the fishiest smelling lo mien ever to come out of any kitchen and...More

The food was absolutely horrible. Everything looked dried out as if it had been sitting there for hours. There was no seasoning on any of the food. We were seated in the very back of the restaurant with a waitress who appeared to have the...More

I was nervous about visiting this restaurant since there are some negative reviews, but my son begged us one night to try it. The price for the buffet was low enough we decided to give it a try, and I'm so glad we did! The...More

Lots of good Chinese food, but not always hot. Wonton soup usually out of wontons and again, not always hot. Hibachi grill very good, and you're guaranteed a hot meal. Service very good. Dishes cleared quickly.

The food was really good and the prices were great, but my boyfriend and I have been on the toilet since yesterday with the runs from it. The food is actually so good though that I may risk it again. Lol

Being graduation day for ECSU, most places were packed for lunch; this was not. The food isn't bad, and the service staff is attentive. There is plenty to offer on the buffet and unlike many buffet places, the food is checked and replaced frequently. I've...More

Tonight was the last time we "try" and hope it's going to be great. The first time was ok, second time; not so good. Tonight was the worst! Food was bland and under seasoned, most looked way overcooked or burnt. The only thing that I...More

Long time customers 1-2 times/week for years. Tonight the service was insulting and horrid - we will not return. Our Navy son returns from deployment this afternoon, we treat family to a favorite meal there and the hostess takes offense at seating us at the...More
