The food was awful. It was lukewarm and tasteless and over cooked. The staff was virtually non existent. There was no one at the hibachi station. I don't eat seafood and found the selection of non seafood items to be limited.

I've eaten at many shopping center type Chinese buffets over the years and have eaten at the China Buffet every month or so for several years. In cleanliness, service and food quality I have found it to be consistently above average for this type of restaurant. Tasty chicken dishes, shrimp, crab rangoon, Sushi and many other choices are part of... More

So I found fingernail in the chicjen and broccoli that was on the buffet. This was a few years ago but then it closed , and re-opened with a beautiful interior.I gave it another try. The food was good for a while too. I never found any more fingernails which is why I gave it a poor rating and not... More

Place was in good condition , but I wished that the cleaning utensils were not sitting right next to the us. Probably a better place to come when its busy. The whole visit was made a... More

It has been a while since I last visited China Buffet. Since I was on that side of town I stopped by. The place has changed a lot. It is much larger, maybe three times as big. The seats were comfortable. The lighting is much better, softer, not the old harsh florescent, commercial grade lighting. There were one or more... More
