China Garden's buffet used to be amazing back in the late 90s. Today, it's merely a trough of oil drenched goo.

Having said that, the quality of the take-out selections are some of the best in the area. I always go for the trifecta of Madarin Tripple Crown, Happy Family and House Fried Rice.

The service was terrible, the food is even more terrible and the staff seem hostile. I won't ever eat there again.

It’s immediately across a small plaza from the Children’s Museum. My five year old niece couldn’t read a lot of things at the time, but she did manage to see the words “Free Ice Cream” on the window sign. So we know that this restaurant knows how to market itself.

The restaurant offers a buffet as well as a menu. The buffet was a little bit sparse, but it was reasonably priced and the items on it were fresh, hot, and tasty. I found plenty to satisfy both of us. The service was friendly, with drink refills and the clearing of plates occurring quickly. It was a very good place to visit in the middle of a fun day.

For a Chinese food in Portsmouth, this is above-standard both in food and service.
