Staff friendly, comical, and helpful. Most of the food is delicious---especially the fried rice, chicken wings, and beef with onions. The furniture is worn and shows its age but it is very clean inside and you cannot beat their price, so spend a fortune somewhere...More

China 1 has a buffet bar in it. The best time to go is when it opens and the food is fresh.It does have a pretty good selection, wish it had more fruit selections.

In a pinch when everything else is busy or you don't want to fight the crowds, eat here. It's not the greatest, but is relatively inexpensive and the staff is very friendly.

We were looking for something we hadn't already had and decided to give the China 1 buffet a shot. Generally this is not something I try when I'm not at home, but this was a nice buffet.

The food is cold (and they are NOT the only buffet on the strip) and probably no better if served hot. In addition, they do not honor their own current coupons. They have another location and even though the coupon clearly shows the Pigeon Forge...More

Very bland. Hot and sour soup was ok. Service was good, in fact too fast. No alcohol. The vegetables in the entree were crisp just not a lot of flavor.

Not exactly the best Chinese food we've had but the buffet did have a variety of items to choose from and the restaurant itself seemed clean and the decor was nice. Best part- it was super inexpensive for the area. So though the food was...More

I can eat the fried rice, beef and vegetables, chicken and vegetables, egg drop soup, and California Sushi. I would ask about items. It's probably easier when you order off the menu to request this. We usually get to go... More
