Stopped by on the way home from work to avoid cooking. Ordered "garlic chicken, Thai Style" it was fantastic and a huge portion. My husband and I shared it and we were stuffed. I browsed at the items on buffet and everything look fresh so I will try dine in soon and hope its just as good.

There are few restaurants in Los Alamos and even fewer open on Sunday's. We had no choice but hadn't had Chinese for a long time. The restaurant doesn't take credit cards.

For years, China Moon was a family favorite (see my previous review). I even had a British friend choose to eat there on two separate visits to to the US. Unfortunately, last time I went, the taste of the food was a huge disappointment. The menu was basically the same, but the ingredients and quality of at least half the... More

i will admit, i was hungry. But appetite aside, for an Asian to give a Chinese restaurant an excellent rating is unusual. I was most impressed by their buffet offering - there was curry chicken, green beans, teriyaki chicken, along with the usual fare. The hot and sour soup and egg drop soup were delicious. And it all cost under... More

Whenever I have had a group event, I let them know and they set up the tables, and they make a point to make fresh the trays of food for our party. Just love it!!

Typical buffet with some nice non-typical selections. Not cheap especially for kids who don't eat a lot.

Every town has a chinese food buffet like this one. So you already know if this is what you want or not. It's neither good nor bad just the same. SO your kids will love it. It's inexpensive. and if you are a big eater or like extreme buffet style variety then this is your destination.
