We should have read the reviews before we went. It was time to eat, and we were hungry. The food was, well, safe enough, I think, but it was obvious they had cut corners in the cost department. A little too bland for our taste. I didn't find the hot mustard until too late, and an eggroll with French's salad... More

Albeit my Sister in law likes an early lunch (11am), then you would expect the food be piping hot and fresh, when it rarely is. I stray away from meats as I don't feel like gambling when I have to return to work. In the past I had tried the chicken of some sort and it reminded me of gizzards...

Went about 7 pm, food was old and cold. When I asked about redoing the food, they put a little hot water into the pans and stirred the old stuff. Food had poor, if any, flavor, and the staff has poor customer service skills. Hoping they can figure out how to make it work =(

I walk in around 5:45 PM and I'm welcomed by the hostess immediately. She is very nice and shows me to my seat. I walk up the the buffet and it's so small! It has all of the typical things you usually find at a Chinese buffet. Everything was old and warm. I read the reviews before I came and... More

We were there about 6:00 p.m. The selection was not typical of what we see on similar buffets and was somewhat limited but was adequate. The items that were empty were filled while we were there. The frog legs were excellent! The other food we had was tasty. It is completely a self-serve facility. You get your own drinks, silverware,... More

Very poor selection of food. What was there looked like it had been sitting there for a while. I chose what looked to be freshly made. The coffee pot is all broken and filthy. The hit tea dispenser looks like something out if the 60's and never been cleaned. When you walk in, you are "told" where to sit and... More

This tiny restaurant only serves a few items. Everything is the run-of-the-mill prepackaged junk. It seems they add salt or MSG to everything. I was unable to completely eat anything I tried. I actually went to the mens room to wash out my mouth with warm water. I had to get the taste out of my mouth. When I returned,... More

Arrived here at 8:15 p.m. There was plenty of parking outside. China One Buffet closes at 9:00 p.m. on Friday evenings. The food was average tasting. When I went for a second serving of soup, there was a small beetle in one of the soup bowls. It was trying to climb out. Makes you wonder how clean the kitchen is... More

This is one of the best Chinese buffets I've eaten at. We go there several times a month though it's 70 miles from my home. The food is freshly cooked and of great variety. The lady that runs it, Luci, is very friendly and a gracious hostess.
