Use to go there a lot, but has went downhill. Tried it recently and it was not good at all. Just a few people was eating, I understand why.

Our community expands greatly every winter. We visited China Buffet during slow season. Many of the items had sat too long on warming trays.

The first time I went here I was afraid to walk in because I couldn't see the buffet and it was dimly lit. HOWEVER, we came here again with friends and it was a pleasant surprise. The food was good and there is a large selection.

It is a common problem in Florida. We came here to get warm but all the buildings are refrigerated, not just the restaurants but stores, banks, and even doctors offices are bone chilling cold. It is not surprising that food served on a steam table becomes lukewarm after only a few minutes. we have learned to get our food to... More

Inexpensive Chinese buffet. Good selection of dishes. Included sushi and seafood. We liked the food, and the liked the price even better. Only $7.15/person for lunch, and this included Chinese tea. Worth a re-visit.

The food tasted like no one cared. There was no variety in the meats ALL CHICKEN!!! The Lo Mein was mushy, egg rolls soggy with grease and it was more American Food than Asian. The price was not worth the food...did not finish my plate.

Pretty good food, and served all you can eat buffet style offers plenty of food. Sadly, this restaurant is mostly "americanized" offering little authentic Chinese cuisine. Their prices were too high but there is almost no nearby competition.

We like this Chinese restaurant much better than those in Sebring and drive up there for lunch. It's a very neat place and a good enough selection to satisfy those wanting a quick lunch. Their egg drop soup is very good. They also have boiled shrimp, sweet & sour chicken ------all being very good.

I enjoyed a couple of the first dishes I tried at the China Buffet in Avon Park. The egg drop soup was good and peppered chicken. Now to the bad part, I took a bite of Coconut Chicken and actually had to spit it out! It tasted like rancid shortening very thickly poured over chicken. It is hard to describe... More
