“Kind of like mongolian grill”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2013

Have a hankering for a mongolian grill? This is the place to go in Decorah. The choices for your "bowl" are good, but don't expect as many choices as one of those big chain restaurants. They also carry a full menu to choose from which are excellent. Nice to not have to drive to the cities to enjoy this fun style of eating out.

“Used to be fantastic, has tapered off”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2012

This placed used to be one of my favorite Chinese buffets anywhere, but it seems like my last couple trips, the food wasn't getting refreshed in the trays as often, and the overall quality was down, too. It's still clean and the dishes are good with decent variety, it's just dropped to 'pretty average buffet' nowadays. If you're in the mood for Chinese, it will certainly meet your needs.

“Very tasty buffet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2012

The buffet is very good and there is a lot of variety. It's always hot and if there is something missing, they will get it for you right away.

“Chinese/Korean Iowa style”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2010

If you are into "volume" eating, the buffet at Cho Sun is FOR YOU. The quality of the buffet is above average, but the offerings never change and so for local residents its a bit boring.

They are offering some other Asian cuisine dishes and have opened a second restaurant on Water Street in downtown Decorah called "Koreanna" which has some more interesting Asian offerings. We like the lunches at Koreanna particularly well.
