We were able to visit this restaurant twice during our week stay in Charleston. It was great both times and had tons of selections, had plenty even for the pickiest of eaters. There were several buffets full and fresh to chose from, as well as a hibachi style grill where the chef would cook your selections fresh and in front... More

So far the Hibachi was not that presentable, taste was fair enough. Value for the money if you love Asian food. They got more variety of Seafood and several cuisene compare to Grand Buffet. Some the staff cant speak well in English. The Cashier become annoyed if you keep coming to thier buffet. (Where's the Essence of Eat All U... More

Typical Chinese buffet in terms of atmosphere. No concerns about cleanliness. Everything was delicious. More variety than I have seen on other Chinese buffets. Frog legs were excellent, as was the shrimp. Wait staff were attentive. Now named A1 China Super Buffet.

We went on a sunday night and all the food was fresh and tasty. It was the usual fare for a chinese buffet but some things extra. You can stop in and try it for yourself, or pass it by. The price is average for any chinese buffet. One thing for sure about any buffet, if its busy on a... More

Ugh... generic buffet style Chinese food. We didn't like any of it and it was not cheap! We would definitely not go back again.

Stopped by here after church looking for a quick meal. The buffet is quite large but the problem is that with so many items to choose from things tend to sit. All the fried foods on the buffet had obviously been there for quite some time because the breading had turned to mush, nothing was crispy. The chicken entrees were... More

New management and name showed early signs of promise. Things seemed to be cleaner and food quality improved. Recently, however, the food options and quality has declined significantly, the place has been filthy and smelly, and at least one of my eating partners or myself has gotten ill after eating there. Save yourself a stomachache and skip this joint.

Now, they changed their name to A1 and have new owners and managers. The new management is so much better!! Everyone is super nice, from the cleaning lady, waiter/waitress, to the cook. The food selection is the almost the same but cooking style is different. Tastes much better and food seems to be fresher. I believe they just changed management... More
