“Fixed by craving for Chinese food”
Review of Beijing Buffet

Beijing Buffet
Ranked #45 of 68 Restaurants in Galena
Restaurant details
Reviewed June 21, 2018

We were visiting Galena and just felt like Chinese food. We picked this one because it was the only one in town. It was a typical Chinese buffet. The place was clean and the bathroom was clean as well. It was pouring rain and the hot tea warmed me up. It is on highway 20 and not in the historic district. Plenty of free parking. It was a solid buffet at a reasonable price.

The restaurant is clean, and the service was decent. The food, however, was not great. It was not necessarily bad, but the quality was lacking on some of the dishes. The bourbon chicken was mostly grizzle, and the steak was tough. My wife enjoyed the crab meat, and I enjoyed the chicken broccoli. All other offerings were average. The cake desserts were not fresh, but the balance of the dessert bar was good. I recommend the banana pudding. The price was reasonable. We frequently visit this area and are on the fence about whether a return is likely.

Had hoped we found a Chinese place in town for when family comes (they all love to have this choice for dinner out). It won't be here...have heard better restaurant in Dubuque (will have to check that out). It wasn't late on a Sunday evening, because we were going to grocery in the shopping center next door after our meal. We tried the buffet, which wasn't well stocked or hot. But we were the second couple in the place...it was empty. Possibly due to other write-ups that it has changed ownership. They were making pot-stickers there in the front of the eating area--not in the kitchen. I thought those would have good flavor...no. I couldn't finish the Sweet/sour soup--not good. The items on the buffet needed to be stirred and kept hot--but they were too busy making the pot-stickers to pay attention to the buffet. I feel lucky to not get sick per other write-ups. Won't be going back there.

Ate here with my husband. A sweet little girl which I would guess was about 8 took us to our table. This
was fine but then she followed us around the buffet and even sat down with us as we ate. We found this to be unacceptable as we wanted to have an adult conversation and found it impossible with a strangers child sitting with us. When she finally left she did the same thing to another couple who seemed annoyed. The other woman who was working did not seem to notice or tell the child
Not to sit with the customers. The buffet was pretty picked over and we had to wait for things to get replenished. A lot of the food was cold especially the egg fu young
We will gladly return if these things are changed.

Located on the north edge of Galena, at the northeast corner of U.S. Highway 20 and Irvine St. in a large shopping center, Beijing Buffet is a stand-alone building. There is plenty of parking available. We thought that the food seemed fresher than many of the Chinese buffets that we have been to. The restaurant seemed clean and well-kept. They had an assortment of foods, including some sushi. The staff was efficient. The buffet price was quite reasonable.
