“If you value you health, do not come here!”
Reviewed June 16, 2011

Treasure Island Chinese Buffet was featured on Dirty Dining on all the local stations in Portland and received a failing 59/100 score from the health inspector. There were dead and living flies everywhere, cockroaches, sugar and flour bags were left open (we all know what that causes). Not to mention the food is below decent and flavorless. The health inspector went back to recheck their progress, and they passed them with a 75/100 because they fixed a couple things but they still had a huge fly issue. In my opinion, they are still a failure.

“Very Disappointing”
Reviewed February 25, 2011

My family and I went to Treasure Island tonight because I wanted Chinese food, and we thought they might have something out of all the dishes that our 5 yr old would eat...she's not a Chinese food fan.

We haven't been there in quite some time, in fact I think they were Treasure Island, then changed their name to something else for awhile, and now they're back to the original name. But it's definitely not what it used to be. Most of the dishes were bland, and/or lacked any real flavor. Also they seemed to have gotten rid of the "Chang's" like on-demand stir fry. And finally they put up this 8 ft high wooden partition between the dining room and the front door area, which has a single door in it, which they leave closed...it looks really, really tacky and made us wonder if maybe they've had too many dine & dashes??? Anyway, we won't be back any time soon.

“Something changed - not an improvement”
Reviewed December 5, 2010

This used to be one of our favorite places. We were going there several times a month. Then they changed owners or management and things went downhill quickly. The quality of ingredients and the flavors are both adversely affected. Some of the new dishes we don't care for...that may just be that dish. But the flavors of old dishes also changed. The staff is as helpful as always, so that is one good thing.

Note: On the company's website testimonials stop at 2009 - some might say that is just when they quit posting them. I think it is also when the food went downhill.

“Tale of Two Times”
Reviewed July 27, 2010

If you can go around 7:00 when the buffet is fresh, the food is pretty good. The selection is very good. The potstickers are tres yummy and should not be missed, though i wish they had them steamed instead of fried. They had some nice chinese buns in a steamer too.

If you go later (8:30 and after), the buffet is not fresh at all and things are dried up and sauces are condensed, causing things to taste flat and salty.
