Ranked #105 of 171 Restaurants in Citrus Heights
Cuisines: American, Chinese, Japanese
Restaurant details
Reviewed August 6, 2013

Visited several times May - July 2013. Always for dinner during the week. Did not visit for lunch or on weekends.
Seating: Large seating area; many tables.
Service: Self-serve mostly except for beverages and napkins.
Quality good.
Temperature: for a buffet - good.
Selection: Excellent.
Price: $16.29 with tax and beverage.

Selection is enormous. Much better than many Chinese buffets I've been to. Sushi - is very good for a buffet. Dinner variety includes MANY seafood selections - crab, oysters, clams, and more. Also American food selections,veggies, and battered selections (e.g.. hot and sour chicken, General Tao's chicken). Oh yeah ... and salads too!

Visited with business colleagues who also liked the selection and quality. China Buffet is located on Sunrise Blvd, which can get VERY busy around rush hour. I'd recommend visiting after 6:30 PM.

This is an extensive buffet.. From their business card: "Over 200 Items Including American, Japanese, Italian, Chinese Style, and Hibachi B-B-Q...." Over 200 items they say. There are 6 two sided serving tables plus the Sushi & BBQ station for you to make your choices.

From individual sushi pieces & rolls to almond cookies there is something you can eat here. The Chinese food is heavy on popular tastes, soups General's Chicken, Broccoli Beef, Coconut Shrimp, Pot Stickers, Egg Rolls, etc. There's shellfish, steamed shrimp, baked fish, braised pork ,french fries, vegetables, salads, Kim Chi, fruit, pastries, cookies. A very ambitious list of choices. The food is replenished often and keeps fresh that way.

I try and avoid fried and breaded food, there are enough choices to avoid those things. I managed 3 passes of the buffet, filled my plate with things I thought were tasty & healthier and left satisfied. My visit was with a group, we had a side room to ourselves for a lunch meeting. We've been there before and will probably revisit this place for future meetings.

Try this buffet first time, its OK, you got what you paid for, right?. Foods is very decent with that kind of price. After came in here 2-3 times then I came back on Sunday for lunch. And let me give you a clue, don't EVER go there for Sunday. the place is packed, crowded and oh my gosh, I am standing in front of crabs steam tables, and this guy hold 2 plates and scoops all the crabs, only left me 2 skinny legs, made my mouth open wide so shocked, .....good Lord !!!

Well, so for any reason, please don't come for Sunday lunch, you have to beat to get good dishes with this kind of people...rude, ignorant,...

Other days I think it will be OK.
