I came here on a whim craving Chinese food. To my surprise, it was a fusion of Asian/Indian dishes with typical (Americanized Chinese) dishes sprinkled in. It was quite busy with lots of business men in suits and such. There is only 1 buffet bar...More

Lunch buffet. Stopped in. Most of the items in the buffet are "thai". The tom yum soup was good. Lots of decent tasting items. I can't remember them all. You'll enjoy if you like Asian buffets. Think it cost less than $10. Try it out!

My 1st time eating here. The pad thai looked great, but I hadnt had mussels in a while. They were delicious, also added a side salad with ginger dressing. I'll be back to try the pad thai next

Healthy Thai and Chinese food. Much better than typical, good portions and great service. The won ton soup was great. Medium spicy is pretty hot!

I typically avoid buffets, but a coworker recommended Thai China for lunch, and it was quite good. The food was fresh and there were a lot of options to choose from. Everything I tried tasted very good.

I gave it a 3 not 4, I would not dine in. Take out was so so...would not be a place I would visit if I lived there, but this was a vegetarian's (whom we were visiting) recommendation because of tofu and curry.

I see others have hedge words like 'fairly' good in their reviews and i feel the same. This Thai and Chinese buffet, $9 per adult, provides lots of food and a pretty good selection, but nothing in the buffet stood out as 'wow' or 'great'....More

My wife and I have an ongoing disagreement regarding Asian buffets. While I agree that most of them are pretty crappy and after you eat there you don't feel like you have had a good meal or were kind to your internal organs. My argument...More
