“Great Buffet for the price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2013

I had dinner here last night with some friends. We all thought the food was really good and the service was excellent. There is a very nice selection of soups, appetizers, main courses, and desserts on the buffet, something to please everyone. When they were out of one item, they quickly brought a fresh replacement. The choice of ice creams was excellent for dessert. We thought it was an excellent value for dinner and highly recommend it.

“When you want variety - this is the Chinese Restuarant to go to”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012

They have 5 hot tables of Chinese buffet food with some american throw in for variety. Plus two roasted meat choices in the evening. The sushi is my favorite. and the food is uniquely its own - not every item is covered in that mystery red rib sauce.

“Under New Management this year.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2012

They have pretty much the same food selections. A couple of new decorations, same staff, same dirty building. Sorry people. I love the food here, but you can wipe the dirt off the walls if you get too close, and the carpeting wasn't changed when the management did. It should have. That carpets been there for over 20 years and it looks it.

“One of the best Chinese buffets!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

We spend a lot of time in Maine, and we have occasion to pass thru Brunswick. When we do, we try and schedule our trip to have lunch at the China Rose. We have found it certainly one of better chinese buffets we have come accross in our travels. Under both the old management and the new, we have been able to get in, be seated and be enjoying a pot of tea. The buffet selection is large, varied and carefully watched...it is rare to have empty pans on the buffet, and when it does happen, it is soon refilled. The food is hot and delicious, the salad bar extensive as is the desert bar. My wife thinks the wonton soup is some of the best she has ever had.
Even if you are not a chinese food fan, there are other plenty of other options: baked ham with pineapple. pizza, french fries. There is no reason to leave the China Rose hungery. The facility is large, tables are not close together so its confortable. There is not much service at a buffet but what there is is courteous and quick.
