A moderate selection. Decent soups. Seafood, beef, chicken and veggie selections available. A few desserts, although I'm not impressed with the close proximity of the cold salad/dessers to the raw sushi items. Also, I worry about the sanitation of having customers (including kids) scooping their own ice cream. (Other buffets have soft-serve.) This is close to Interstate 91 (exit 28),... More

A very large restaurant with a large buffet. The selection of food is amazing and deliciously prepared. Desserts included several types of fruit and ice cream.

The first thing you notice is that there are many Chinese families tucking in with every sign of enjoyment, which I think is a good sign. Masses of choice. Hot and sour soup was very good, and lots of varieties have nicely presented vegetable elements. Good salad and dessert selections. Particularly good value at lunchtime.

For the past four years their buffet has always been the same, neither inspiring or really good but a lot of locals go there because it is affordable

Go anytime from 11--9 and find the one specialty your heart desires, literally. Great Asian cuisine of any kind, huge crab legs, so much to choose from. Order from the menu as well. Deliscious meats, poultry, seafood. Or weigh a take-home box from the buffet, or call in a menu pick-up. Never a bad meal in the last 10 years.

It had been several weeks since I'd been to a Chinese Buffet so I was drawn to the China Moon restaurant while in town for business. I usually start with hot and sour soup and here it was very good. The soup was hot, tasty, just the right blend of sour and more mushrooms than most others that I've tried.... More

Typical Chinese buffet, good selection for a reasonable price. If you order to go it`s even better because it is made fresh, whereas sometimes the food sits awhile in the buffet.

We recently went to the China Moon Buffet, the food was outstanding, great variety and excellent service. The location is very good with a large amount of parking. My family and I eat there whenever we are in the area!! I highly recommend it!!
