“Finally a good chinese buffet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

With the closing of Best in Huntington, I thought that was the end of good Chinese buffet dining.
I was very pleasantly surprised with the experience. We tried Crystal Garden based on the reviews posted with Tripadvisor.

Great food, always fresh, trays do not remain empty for long. Very clean and pleasant atmosphere.

“Decent Buffet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013

There are no frills here, it's a pretty standard Chinese Buffet. One thing that is cool that you don't always see is they have a sushi section where the sushi is freshly rolled. Unfortunately, this section is not labeled so it is a bit of a guessing game.

“Best Chinese Buffet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013

Great Selection, good price and they have sushi!!!! Besides them just having sushi it is fresh with someone making it while you watch. The wonton soup is tasty and the best I have had at a buffet. From american choices to chinese it is all very good. Check them out it is worth it!!!!

“Great buffet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2013 via mobile

I would say that this is the best Chinese buffet around. They have a very good selection, all the basics that you would be looking for. The food is fresh and flavorful. I would recommend it. The atmosphere is quite dated as all Chinese buffets are.

“You won't be disappointed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012

Food was well-stocked and flavorful. Spare ribs were just like they used to be decades ago when they were really good. The service is pleasant and mostly pretty prompt. Buffet is well stocked and fresh. Will go back again.
