China Bar in Melbourne is a large modern Chinese style restaurant with lots of friendly, attentive staff and a great variety of food. For those who are not wholly into the Asian food, there is a salad bar. You can choose from a variety of entrees, a chocolate fountain, Asian flavoured icy poles, sushi. There are also hot meals covering some good curries, spicy prawns - a little hard to eat because the shells are still on and the flesh is really stuck to them, mussels and various types of octopus. The chefs in the open kitchen will cook fresh noodles with your choice of ingredients. Since it is a buffet you see some people really stuffing themselves to get their money's worth. The attentive staff keep up the supply of cold water and remove empty plates so that you are not balancing the empties on the small tables.
There is a grill bar upstairs that is open at night. The toilets are also upstairs - suprisingly just two toilets for such a large venue and they are somewhat grungy.
The normal lunchtime price is around $30 but with the China Bar offer of $13.60 for the last two weeks, there has been a surge of new people trying it out.
The dessert bar has a large selection of generally ordinary tasting desserts. For the discount price it was a great opportunity to try it out, but at the full rate and not being a glutton, I would not go there again.
