I dined at this restaurant with a large group of people. People in the group wanted to have the buffet, so I went along with them. There were good offerings on the buffet to appeal to most Chinese food lovers. The hot and sour soup was very good. I thought the choice of the entrees on this evening where good... More

One of my spot for quick lunch. The buffet is good, and price is reasonable. I go there for the chicken wings. I am a wing nut. The lunch buffet comes with a soup. The staff is courteous and fast. Great place if you're on a time crunch.

Easy in, easy out, fast service. We had the dinner buffet with wide variety of options. The food was hit and miss. I hated the ravioli but I really liked the rice noodles and vegetables. Won Ton soup was tasty but BBQ ribs were very tough. My girl friend liked the Egg Drop soup and enjoyed the spring rolls and... More

A colleague and I meet at this Chinese restaurant probably once a month for dinner. It is convenient to our offices, and offers an extensive buffet. The service is quick and attentive, and it is so large that we can get a table in a corner where we can talk privately. The food is good, sometimes excellent; rarely, there is... More

I love Chinese food and I love my new community, but this place deserves a pass. I even speak a bit of Chinese and that was no good. Either way, the food is generally fried, mass-produced garbage that one could get anywhere. And that's too bad for a place that has so many proper Asians, like Lexington. Either way, avoid.... More

We love the lunch buffet as well as the sit-down menu. This is delicious Chinese cuisine steps from Lexington Green and the rest of historic downtown Lexington. Very fresh, very delicious.

Here's the thing -- if you and yours are hungry, craving some Chinese food, and aren't expecting haute cuisine, then this is a fun place to go, especially for the weekend buffet. Almost all of the offerings range on a spectrum that goes from "Nothing all that bad about this ...." to "Hey,that's tasty!" A few things are just a... More

Tasty buffet for those not watching waistlines. The restaurant has occupied this location for decades and is frequented by a diverse crowd. The buffet is large, offerings are frequently refreshed and includes soup and dessert. Price is moderate at $15.95 pp. Conveniently located in the center of Lexington, it's a great meeting place. My preference is their sister restaurant in... More

Buffet lunch and dinner are good choices, even for people, who are not familiar with Chineese food. The location is perfect, in the center of Lexington, close to the parking lot and if you are lucky in front of the door. The restaurant is already many years in Lexington and run by the same family. The complete evening buffet dinner,... More

We've been to Yangtze quite a bit over the years, I just realized I haven't posted a review of this location. I have always found their food to be consistent, which I completely appreciate as I typically place the same order each time. For dinner the buffet is $15.95/person+tax and includes choice of soup as well as ice cream (which... More
