I reviewed regarding the buffet back in July which was small. Today we tried the takeout only because the food tasted ok last time it was just a small sad buffet... Well I paid $36 + tax for plain nasty fpod. No flavor or seasoning on anything. The fried rice hadno taste and no added veggies. Then charged me $3... More

Me and my wife recently ate here at Nanjing Restaurant. This location used to be booming with a video store across the street, and local strip mall behind the restaurant. I am highly disappointed that yes they wait until the pan is completely empty before they bring out fresh food. The lights in the place were very dark, especially in... More

We love a good chinese buffet and we eat at them often, but this was such a disappointment! First off theres barely a dozen food items, 2 sushi options, and cookies for desert. The food they did serve was tasty but barely a serving available in each pan. Seems they force you to eat every bit until they put out... More

I went there for a take out meal, and I discovered that they had a buffet. I called my wife, and we made a quick decision to eat out instead of "in." The dinner buffet in only $8.95. The restaurant is small: six booths and just four tables. But, there is a back room which, presumably, is opened up when... More

We ordered the following takeout items: Kung Pao Chicken, Shrimp and fried rice, crab rangoons and a shrimp egg roll. It was delicious and all that for $23.00 total! I would highly recommend this restaurant! I didn't give it a 5 rating because it lacked a Michelin Star! LOL

Got take out this evening, this was my first time trying the food since the new owners took over. I'll start with the good- the crab Rangoon have a 'lighter' wrapper like a spring roll. Very good! Now for the not so good. - I tried to place an online order which is an offering on their website. You HAVE... More

I love Chinese food. I love a good Chinese buffet. This is neither. I have tried twice to stomach the lunch buffet and have failed. I know it's a buffet, even so, the food should be at least warm, not room temperature or less. The decor is screaming for an update, lots of leftover 1970's teal in here. The choices... More

I don't have a lot of experience w/ Asian food since I don't eat it very often but when a certain family member comes to town we usually eat there. We always get the buffet which is around $10.00 (dinner) . There is an abundance of selections on their buffet, friut, veggies, meats and dessert. I prefer the chicken dishes... More
