Stopped in for two "to-go" dinners. Large selections of chicken, beef and seafood dishes, rice, noodles, soups, etc..plus the Mongolian buffet. All the food was hot and plentiful. I stopped in at mid-afternoon when food on a buffet is usually cold or has run out , but not here. Hot and plentiful food.

Big sign in window advertising crab legs on buffet. We were there at lunch time before dinner started. After dinner started & we asked we were told they no longer have crab legs due to price. Charged 11.75 dinner price for buffet. Food was ok, good variety & mostly fresh. The mgr was rude when questioned about lunch price &... More

This is my go-to Chinese buffet in the Kanawha Valley. One of the main reasons is that they have spring rolls and real egg rolls. They have a really big selection and a Mongolian grill where you can pick out your raw food and have it cooked in front of you. Good prices too.

Most times we are in Charleston we visit China Gourmet. The food is always good and the staff is excellent. The Buffet is very good. The Restaurant itself is very nice but the restrooms are in need of paint and repair.

The servers seem so sad it just puts you in a depressing mood. They have a lot to pick from, but like most buffet food its not the greatest quality. I skip the buffet an eat from the Mongolian Grill where they make your food on the spot. Meat is a little thin but you can get all you want.... More

If you have eaten at very many Chinese buffets you will be familiar with China Gourmet. My wife and I were in the mood for this one evening and so we ate there. Not bad, but nothing out of the ordinary.

They need to learn how to fry shrimp. The choices for shrimp (weekend) are fried in the shell with head intact and near impossible to peel or pepper shrimp so soggy with grease it's nauseating to even look at. The whole buffet is sub-par and the service is horrible. The wait staff act like you are interrupting their day. Do... More
