“Not bad”
Reviewed September 7, 2013 via mobile

Cheap price large selection. Lots of sushi but only a few are labeled so that leaves you to guess on some items. The only down side I found was alot of the food that should have been hot was only warm and the egg rolls and dumpling were actually cold in the middle. This was during dinner time so it wasn't like this was an off hour problem.

All in all it was worth the price we paid but if you really want quality gourmet asain tood this isnt the place in spite of the name. But if you are looking for a cheap place with lots of food this is the place for you.

“Great sushi, lots of great selections of food, cheaply priced”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

This by far is our favorite location for Chinese buffet. They keep the food trays full of tasty treats, the sushi is good, the kimchi tasty, and the frogs legs the best I've found in town. This is the spot for families ready to eat a great diverse variety of food, from Chinese, to sausage and lots in between. The selection is so great you end up missing something each time you are there, making you want to go back and catch what you missed the first time. The staff is pleasant, we had a family meal there for our sons birthday and they played the Happy Birthday song and gave him a personal cake from their kitchen. This is a walk away full, saying WOW type of place.

“How can they do it so cheap”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

Chinese, Americian and Japanese as well as a great dessert bar, this buffet has something for everyone. The brochure shows seafood and a price of $7.29 for lunch and $11.49 for tea, so I was expecting only a few dishes to choose from.
But there was about 6 different food stations and if you don't find what you want there you can move onto another station with chefs waiting to cook and prepare your selection while you watch.
We were happy with the taste, temperature and freshness of the food.
Give this place a go and I am sure you will be impressed less than $20 for 2 people for lunch is usually a burger but a buffet with such good food. Yes they even have children prices also buy a gift voucher and you get a free meal so extra value there.

“Our Favorite Restaurant”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

We love Chinese buffets and Gourmet Buffet really delivers. The food is always fresh and there are many choices - even "American" type food for the little ones including pizza, mac and cheese and ham. And if you don't want to pick from the prepared foods, you can choose your food and have it prepared right in front of you. They have great desserts and also have fresh fruit, puddings, jello and an ice cream bar. And don't be fooled by the small entrance because the restaurant is huge with your choice of a table or a booth and the room is tastefully decorated. The service is excellent and the price is right. We eat there at least once a week!
