The owners py sugary syrups.staff are among the friendliest you'll find anywhere, but the food is that sort of indeterminate stuff covered in goopy sugary syrup.

Same food items in buffet as always. Better service from new busser. They seem to cycle them thru China as they don't stay long & don't speak much English. I don't know if they use MSG or what but always bothers my stomach when I eat here so I can't do it anymore.

We ate here more times than I care to admit. If you're in a rush buffet is sometimes the only viable alternative to yucky fast food. As far as Chinese buffet places in small towns go, this one is quite decent. Sure, I've been to better, fresher and fancier ones, but those ones would have a much higher turnaround, higher... More

No variety here. Come back a year later, exact same items out. A lot of them not even Chinese food. The bussers use to be right on drink refills & taking empty plates. Not this time. Several small kids left to run amok. Restaurant management just let them bother the diners.

This buffet passes as just another average chines buffet. There was not much on the dessert bar or salad bar compared to similar buffets. We were there just after 2 pm and while the pans were not very full the food did look fresh. I also saw they were making sure the was always a full assortment of dishes. The... More

In all honesty, one of the saddest meals I have had. It would stain imagination to say something positive about that visit.

I used to looove this place! The temperature of the food is really hit or miss though. When I went before, the food was hot and so delicious, but when I went a few nights ago, everything but the soup was just above room temp. Just the thought that I ate it anyways makes me sick to my stomach. I... More

I belong to a group that has met once month at the China Buffet for years. The buffet has a wide variety of choices and, if you are starving, you can go back as often as you like. The quality of the food has always been good and is value priced. Someone mentioned that something wasn't hot enough. It is... More
