“Great Chinese Buffet”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

This is a reasonably priced buffet dinner ($10.49) with lots of fresh Chinese food. The place is very popular so freshly cooked food is brought out frequently. The Bourbon Chicken, Teriyaki Chicken and Snow Shrimp were all very good. The place is simple, service is fast, and staff is friendly. I would return again.

“Best Chinese Around”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

When in North Dakota, we go there often. You can't beat the price and the amount of food on the buffet. It is always fresh because it is so busy, the turn around on the buffet tables goes quickly so no worrying about how long it's been sitting there. I did find that their crab rangoon is over cooked, too bad, I love those, but all the other food is wonderful. They even have a stir-fry bar, pick what you want and they will cook it up right there for you. Also, they have a dessert buffet, a cold buffet, and two hot buffet tables. Must go whenever you visit Williston, ND. I went 2x this past week and next time around I will definetly be going there again.

“All-you-can-eat buffet plus fresh stir-fry”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

Love the stir-fry bar. Pick the stuff you want and they cook it up fresh for you on the flat-top. Plus they have the usual assortment of buffet selections.

“Decent, but not what I'd Expect”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

I have eaten at Rice and Spice numerous times because of the selection of food. I mean they always have pot stickers, not an easy dish to find here in the sticks. The food is mostly the same run of the mill asian buffet fodder you would find in North Dakota. When I dined there around a month back, come to find out it appears they don't make there food on site. One of the cooks came out from the kitchen with plastic rectangular containers that you would microwave and began filling the steam plates. On one of the plates he forgot and left the shape in it's rectangular form instead of smoothing it over as normal. It's a small wonder that most of the Asian food in this state tastes the same...it mostly seems to be of a food service variety.
