“USED to be Good”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

Chinatown Buffet used to be a restaurant that we would visit on our trips to Rehoboth but after this last visit we have said "No More". Things have changed, there seems to be a different staff and with that there is a change in food and the quality and taste of product. The food is bland, all tasting the same, and in some cases inedible. The wontons in the soup were hard from sitting and had dried out, the chow mein noodles are now spaghetti noodles, and the food was cold. It takes them much longer to refill items as they run out and there is less variety. The main problem is the taste of the food has changed dramatically....and so we would not recommend this place anymore.

“Good, consistent value for smorgesbord”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

Would have liked to order off a menu, but was discouraged in doing this by the people whom I was dining.

“Good Place to Eat”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

On my way back from Ocean City to New York we stopped at this restaurant. I'm really glad I did. In the lobby as you enter there is a "pond" with fishes and a small water fall. The place is clean, the staff is friendly, the service is fast and best of all the food is great and the prices even better. There is plenty of seating area, tables and booths. They provide a wide selection of different types of food, including desserts. As a side note, this restaurant is across from the Tangers Outlets! Shop then eat!

“Surprisingly very good”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

Chinese buffets are frequently filled with poorly cooked, salty, oily food. Not the case here. The variety here was exceptional, price was very reasonable and the quality of the food was very good. I would definitely go back. Much better than expected.

“Great food and plenty of variety”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

This fun buffet is a favorite for any visitor, with lots of choices, a nice price for the all-you-care-to-eat diner, and a fine a la carte menu. Fresh, tasty food at a reasonable price!
