Visited this restaurant on Thanksgiving day. I was surprise to see such a variety of food including a carved turkey. Buffet price was only 11.99 which I thought was very inexpensive. The place was very clean with friendly staff. I will definitely visit again. Food was outstanding.

Interesting combinations on buffet ( stuffed jalapeno's and baked potatoes stuffed with mucho onions) Hibachi is good, nice variety. Restrooms need to be cleaned, and a sushi okay. No fresh ice cream bar and desserts limited

This was one of the best Chinese Buffets I have ever tried. Food was refreshed at regular intervals and was very tasty. Snow crab, crayfish to die for, and the regular fare made me eat a lot more than I usually do.

We saw the signs and thought for $9.99 it was worth a try. I should have turned around when we pulled up and the parking lot was filthy. The outside looks run down and unkept. We tried it and the food was not good. No taste at all. Crab legs were horrible. Service was good but food not so much.... More

This restaurant located at Baytree and Norman is easy to get to. The food is typical Chinese buffet but on steroids. There is lots of it! Atmosphere is the same as most - can be quiet or noisy depending on time of day and day of week. Good eats for little money and service is always kind.

Dined for Father Day lunch since they were advertising AYCE Lobster. Upon arrival we were seated quickly at freshly wiped down sticky table complete with napkins on the floor. The buffet was a a disaster, the 'Lobster' was lobster head stuffed with sticky rice. Nice ploy! Everything on the buffet looked as though it should be thrown out and was... More

I had a bit of time to kill and thought I would give this place a shot. Wish I had gone somewhere else. The staff was very friendly, props for the staff. The food looked good on the buffet, but was all just kind of bland. The tomatoes on the salad bar kind of tasted like wine so I assume... More

We visited the buffet in the early evening. It wasn't overly busy which may have contributed to the problem. A lot of the food on the buffet needed to be changed out. For example, the egg drop soup had turned green. Some of the stir fry's were picked over (missing some of the ingredients), the mac and cheese had gotten... More

I was visited my elderly uncle and he took us to lunch at Chow Town. I was so impressed with the excellent quality of food and the large variety of cusines to choose from. My favorites were the fried shrimp, the Chinese foods, the rangoons and the pineapple dessert in the phillo cup. Could not have asked for better. It... More

Chow town is a place to go when you are really hungry. The buffet is miles long with Chinese, Japanese American etc. and the desert bar is elegant and freshly made
