“Decent Buffet”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

We frequent this buffet with our friends on a weekly basis. The selections are varied and freshly made. They draw a nice lunch crowd and offer a large selection of main dishes, soups, salads, hibachi, sushi and desserts.

“Crab, Crab, Crab, Lobster”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

My wife and I love seafood, but most Florida restaurants charge like gold (by the gram) for the fruits de Mer. NOT Dragon Gourmet Buffet! Oysters and Mussels on the half shell, cold Crab legs, warm (stone?) Crabs and sometimes warm Crab legs. Steamed lobster on the high holidays (CNY, VD, TG, Xmas, etc.) all pack 'em in. But the excellent fish and shrimp are my favorites. They always have broiled/baked flounder, salmon, tilapia, and fried fish, fried calimari, several types of shrimp, and one of the most delicious carve your own pork roasts in town. Make your own salad at the salad bar, try a scrumptious soup, make your own Mongolian BBQ, eat some sushi, do the steamed Dim Sum: NOBODY goes away hungry from the Dragon Gourmet! They do a tasty spinach puff pastry, and my wife loves the Chinese buns, especially the red pork and the baked custard buns. All the usual suspects available on the steam tables for traditional Chinese stir fry, and pizza for the kids. Usually fresh cantalope, honey dew (green), watermelon and oranges, along with canned fruits for dessert or a wide choice of prepared pastries; the flan, or green tea and red bean ice creams are always good. They make a warm German apple strudel, which along with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, is wundebar! If I have a critcism, it is their white rice: small grain, dry, lumpy and slightly tough, served from a pan on the steam table. At least keep it in a rice steamer/warmer to retain moisture content. A Chinese restaurant should do a lot more justice to this staple Asian food than that. (Warm, moist, and preferablyThai Jasmine rice.) But who bypasses all that seafood just for the rice, ha ha!

This groaning board feast with unlimited hot tea is only $16.99/pax (dinner) on the weekends or even less Monday - Thursday! Slightly more on the holidays that they serve lobster.

The Dragon Gourmet Buffet is simply our favorite (and regular) resataurant in SoFlo!

“Mom's Birthday dinner”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

My mom really enjoys Chinese.seafood buffets. This was the first time that I had eaten at this location but heard some really good things about the food. We arrived with a party of 12 and the wait time was very minimal, we were not all able to sit at the same table but in the same area within in talking distance. The waitress was not very friendly nor helpful. The food was good, hot and freshly prepared. My sister enjoyed the sushi bar and my mom and other siblings enjoyed the fried crabs, there was more than enough food for the children to enjoy. I would have to say this was a successful dinner for my mom.
