This is the best Chinese buffet in the Birmingham area. Food is always fresh and well prepared. Service is friendly and prices reasonable.

We went to China Doll 2 with a large group. The restaurant was not crowded at the time that we arrived. We were seated quickly and served promptly. The food was varied and all served at the right temperature. Everyone was pleased with their selection. This restaurant does not use MSG and they also cook with less oil and less... More

We are regulars for all the right reasons. Their main draw is lunch but we go for evening dinner. Most times, there won't be two full tables at 6:00. They do a ton of takeout. The owners are super friendly and the service is fast. Food is always good. Sunday nights are our favorite. This time Hayden served us up... More

I live near China Doll 2, but had never eaten there. So I tried the lunch buffet. Someone said to be sure and get there early so it's not dried out. But mine was very good. The sweet and sour soup was one of my favorites around. And everything else following in acceptable flavor. Even though I chose to eat... More

I moved from Birmingham from Boston 8 years ago, wonderful place to live but good Chinese food? Nope, nothing, nada...until we found China Doll 2. One of those small, strip mall, Chinese places - aren't they always the best? The food is great whether you get take out or have the lunch buffet. The owner is sweet and you will... More

Chinese buffett on Sunday after church consider as a place to meet & eat. Not as large as some chinese restraunts. But makes up for it in freshness, reasonable price, & friendliness of staff. Seems to be family run & that they want you to be happy during your dining experience as well as leaving happy. Good place for lunch... More
