The Garden Buffet is very lovely inside and clean. The staff are very cordial, prompt to your needs and speak English. The food items were fresh and hot. The cold foods looked freshly made and there was a nice variety of sushi selections. The ribs/meats made in the red sauce were not tasty. The desserts selections were okay. The prices... More

I had not been to this Asian buffet in a few years. I can recall initially the food was very good, fresh and piping hot. The service originally was not great and that has improved dramatically recently. The restaurant itself is very clean and the Oriental decor is fun to look at. There are a number of hot tables with... More

Fabulous buffet. Everything you could ever want or desire! Great service--Great food! Nice selection of chinese food from appetizers and soups to a sushi bar and mongolian barbeque bar where you select all the ingredients in your dish and they prepare it in front of you. Great for families, lots of room and good, quick service.

The motto of this place should be "Nothing so bad you'll spit it out." If that's good enough for you, go ahead. There are actually a few things on the buffet that are OK. The hot and sour soup is passable, the pan fried dumplings are frozen, but ok if they haven't been sitting too long. The ribs are OK,... More

The salad bar had exotic fruit very yummy... We love this place we would come back again and again... Sorry again we would come back. Everyone should try... More

I visited this joint for Sunday lunch. The pepper steak was ICE COLD. I requested a medium rare steak and received a severely overcooked piece of shoe leather. Upon mentioning this to Mgt. they discounted my meal by $1 which as senior I would have received anyway. Go out of your way to NOT patronize this place.

Clean and fresh! Bathrooms clean, food delicious and fresh! We arrived at 2pm and were afraid of getting the later end of the buffet...but no, it was delicious and fresh! Beautiful presentation, 6 large tables of assorted foods and appetizers and deserts! If you leave here hungry, shame on you! Great deal for modest price!

The buffet contained the typical Chinese buffet fare, but there was more to offer in terms of meats (BBQ ribs) and vegetables than usual. Friendly staff, nice atmosphere, and average price. (Be sure to ask for Senior discount if it applies!)

Very nice Chinese buffet in New Braunfels. Lots of food choices served all day. Reasonable lunch and dinner prices. Sushi and Mongolian BBQ available as well. If you are a big eater, this is the place for you. Very attentive staff eager to please their customers. Located in shopping center with lots of convenient parking. Recommended for families as well... More
