Restaurant details
Reviewed 10 April 2016

Small & cute, has recently gone through some much needed renovations. Options include take out buffet ($6.99/lb) eat in buffet at $12.99 person. Buffet on weekends only.

One & only complaint is that there is no price difference for a child, toddler or baby. They eat, they pay. This should be fixed.

This is a family owned and operated restaurant. Some of the older members have limited English. All are quite pleasant. Egg rolls & wontons are made from scratch on site (quite neat to watch). Main waitress is sweet, pleasant & always cheerful.

One and only time I had an issue with the buffet to go, I called up & explained the issue & matter was very quickly resolved in a great manner.

Unlike what another reviewer has stated, I find the food is brought out fresh and kept plentiful. I have also seen an independent delivery driver stick his fingers into a dish in the buffet, when this was brought to their attention, the dish was immediately taken away and replaced.

Health inspection report hangs on the wall, easily visible with only one minor violation (drink fridge needs to be repainted)

China Coast is our main go to for Chinese food in Saint John. Best, most authentic in the city.

Food is cool, selection is very limited, even the water tastes terrible. I would NOT reccomend this restaurant to anyone.

I have never actually sat down and eaten a meal in the restaurant, but I have ordered take out from them a few times. The food has always been very good. Very authentic and good quality. Try the curry chicken....best in Saint John.
