Some of the items had scraps left in the bottom of the pan and they were not refilled the whole time I was there. Next, the food was not that hot, and the food just didn't have a good full taste that other restaurants have. So many better choices around than to go here , I would stay away from... More

I went there for dinner and was expecting the same Chinese buffet that you can get anywhere, but was very disappointed for a few reasons. The food selection is limited - not as much variety as other restaurant buffets. Next, some of the items had scraps left in the bottom of the pan and they were not refilled the whole... More

Min's City is a buffet of often not-hot entrees and mediocre fare. The servers all seem to sit around and are hard to call when you need them.

The buffet is crap. Honestly go to golden corral if your looking for something like that. I took my family from out of town here and it was embarrassing. The server was alright for the one time we seen her trying to get a refill here felt like a burden with a large table. I have been here once with... More

Went to dinner for the buffet. First buffet was almost empty. Second the fool was very bland. Nothing to write home about. I will not be returning, this is the second time here with a disappointing dinner.

The buffet is very small, but everything on it was fresh and good! They remove all the lunch food and replace it for the supper meal. This means you may have to wait while this is done. The shrimp and chicken French style, something I have never seen on a buffet, was prepared in a lightly seasoned white sauce, very... More

It's never been the best but within the last year it has gotten horrible. Even during normal busy meal hours they never have food out and everyone scrapes the bottom of the pan. The food that is usually out but taste old as Hell. They never bring food out until 2 or 3 people start to complain. This is whether... More

This was the third time we tried Min's since it changed hands. We gave it another try because of some new positive reviews. We ordered take out Ala carte. This was without a doubt the WORST Chinese food we've ever gotten. I ordered shrimp fried rice and my husband ordered the Kung pao chicken. Both were tasteless. The shrimp in... More
