My grandmother LOVES chinese food. She sometimes says she actually has slanty eyes. So I have frequented many, if not all of the various Chinese places in the Lehigh Valley. The New China Buffet is consistently one of the best buffets around. The food is good, hot, and almost always fresh ( I tend to give buffets a little more leeway because of the nature of the work they have) and the food suits the taste of the populace. One can't really expect to have sizzling, fresh out of the kitchen General Tso's - unless you watch for it of course!

I will say if you're looking to try a variety of different Chinese dishes at a low price and are unsure of what to get, this is the place for you. They have a large swath of food from steaks to seafood to poultry and vegetables as well. This is a great place for friends or family and if you can pick up a local paper - they tend to have coupons as well. Good food for a reasonable price and a massive selection.

Almost forgot - They have a dessert bar. A big one.

lots of different Chinese food from General Tso chicken to seafood shrimp wrapped in bacon to crab legs. reasonable prices 2 people were under 30 dollars. Weekends they offer a whole lobster for 4.99 more with your meal. Always eat to much when I visit.

My friends and I visit New China Buffet once a month and have for about 8 or 9 years. Over the years they have gone through a renovation and have increased the quality of their food. While the food is not always hot, it is good. Their sushi is average, but they have a hibachi that a few of my friends get every time. The restaurant could be cleaner. We keep going back because the staff is typically very nice and we can sit for a few hours and talk. When we have birthdays they try to do something special which is very nice. The price is fair and they typically have coupons that you can find.

I have eaten at many Chinese buffets in the USA and abroad in my lifetime. This is the best buffet in my experience. The mongolian barbeque is excellent. They will even cook an omlette at your request. The sushi bar has more diversity and options than higher priced sushi restaurants. There are four hot buffet options; more than other Chinese buffets. The hot buffets have exotic option like frog legs and crayfish.

This buffet is a wonderful experience.

In general these places aren't that great but this ranks as one of the best. The food is not gourmet quality but it is plentiful, The food is hot and always quickly replenished. Taste is good and price it right.
