Food tastes good. Good size portions. We would return. Got take out but dining in looks nice and they have buffet as well. A little pricey.

The lunch buffet looked delicious and there was plenty of food. However, it was all luke-warm to cold and it all tasted the same. There was no burst of flavor even in the spicier offerings and it was all mediocre tasting. Do not plan to return. I was embarrassed to have taken friends there for lunch.

The food was ok, but the service was horrendous. Hopefully a couple people had called in sick or something and that was the reason for it. But we sat for probably 30 minutes before we were even asked if we would like something to drink. That's not including the time it took for the waitress to come back for our... More

First I was treated as if I was lying about my food being incorrect. I let that go. Then as I was eating my steamed rice, I saw a bug crawling around in it. I am completely disgusted. I took my food back only to be directly accused of putting the bug in there myself, in front of other customers;... More

I always do take out. When I placed my order on the phone it was ready in 10 minutes, you just can't beat that. The food was really good. Mongolian Beef was very enjoyable.

We chose China Lights Buffet to take visiting friends. Unfortunately, we chose a day that was very close to Chinese New Years and the restaurant was packed. The selection of food was almost nonexistent and although the staff worked hard to bring more and hot entrees, they just couldn't keep up with the crowd. We will be back, as we... More

This restaurant is not good. It is overpriced and the the food was mediocre ---- Everything is separate and can be costly ---

My husband and I ate here and we were a little worried about the service because of the reviews we'd read. However- the service was wonderful! Attentive- yet not overbearing waitress. They kept our drinks filled and food came out promptly. We really liked our entrees. Our only complaint is that the egg rolls were pretty greasy (even for an... More

I came here once before I lived in Eagle River, and I thought it was better than most of the Chinese places I had tried in Anchorage. Then I moved to Eagle River, and it became one of my favorite places. And I still think it's better than any of Anchorage's Chinese restaurants. The food is fresh, and it's not... More
