For this being a Chinese buffet they did not have rice, everything was undercooked and the chicken was mushy. I would recommend to run from the front door and go anywhere else.

If you have been to an Asian buffet then this one is the same. Around $10 including the drink. Salmon my favorite was there. Yum. They didn't have General Tso's Chicken which I was surprised about. But deep fried shrimp, mussels on the half shell with cheese and standing roast beef. All were there and very good. I will return.... More

My first impression was how clean and the great smells in the air. I have always enjoyed Chinese food, and I like really good Chinese food. This restaurant has such a large variety of food it amazes me. Items that should be hot are hot and not tepid. Items that should look delicious, look it and are tasty. Nothing ever... More

If you hit it right (when everything is fresh) this is a great place to have chinese food. If you don't hit it just right the hibachi is about all that is tasty. The price is very good and the service is okay.

I will admit that we did get here a little late in the lunch service. We arrived a few minutes after 1 and the place only had one other group eating. The food seems very processed and americanized. Open the box, heat the contents and put it on the buffet. Even with that the food was cold and in many... More

I mean, you don't really go to Baraboo for China Buffet, but overall it's not too bad. Like one reviewer said, it has potential. I feel like they aren't putting the effort in. Everything I had tasted fine and was fresh. I feel like if they put a little more effort in, their food could be soooo much better.

This Chinese buffet is typical Chinese buffet food but with more options than the other buffets in Baraboo. The Mongolian grill options have been cut back, I assume, due to cost...but today only 5 or 6 veggie options an 3 meat options: chicken, shrimp and egg. Gone were the pea pods, beef, and pork. Kind of sad. You must pay... More

This is possibly one of the worst decisions ever! I wish I would have read reviews first. Fried rice taste like white rice, no flavor to nothing at all. And you call this place a buffet?!! There's only like 5 food items to choose from! And of course we had to go on the most expensive night. I'm very disappointed!... More

Nice young woman at the register. I was doing take out, and one pays by the pound. I suppose that is normal, but I've never done take out in a buffet before. The selection of food was narrower than I'm used to seeing. Next time I'm in Baraboo I'll try some place else.
