“Decent Fujian style Chinese cuisine”

China Buffet and Hibachi
Ranked #39 of 52 Restaurants in Hope Mills
Restaurant details
Reviewed 9 November 2017

The selection of foods, on the evening that I went there with my wife, was decent and it seemed fresh. There were relatively small quantities of food in the pans but the pans were replenished quickly and not allowed to stay empty. On a Monday evening this seemed to be a good idea to prevent the food from getting old and dried out while restaurant traffic was light.

The quality of the food was good. It was hot. The taste was standard -- I am convinced that there is a single Chinese kitchen somewhere in the central US, (St Louis, maybe?) that ships out the exact same fare to a majority of Chinese restaurants. Fujian style seems to focus on sweet and corn starch rather than spicy hot foods favored in Hunan, Sichuan and Guizhou style and that is what you find here. The closest thing to spicy was the Hot and Sour soup, most heat from black pepper; not much sourness.

There is a small sushi bar with fresh tasting nigiri and maki but no sashimi. there was plenty of sliced ginger. The wasabi was somewhat tasteless and flat– perhaps old. There was no low-sodium soy sauce available, which is too bad.

The place was clean,, in spite of one review claiming the sanitation score being "consistently low." Another reviewer pointed out a grade A sanitation score. Expensive? -- No, at least not by my idea of expensive!

Will I go back? If I go back to Fayetteville area for any length of time, I would not hesitate to return, although there are other places that are easier to find and easier to access. I will likely try those other places too.

The sanitation score is consistently low. The food is average at best and the prices are way too expensive for the quality of food served. Save your money and go to a real Chinese restaurant.

We tried a variety of foods off the buffet and only ate a bite or two of most of them. Foods that should have been spicy were bland. I usually eat too much at buffets but I left still hungry. The best thing on the buffet were the egg rolls.

Compared to others I have been to I have this one very small. Selection was ok. Large seating area, but they seated everyone on top of each other. We did not take advantage of the Hibachi grill so I can not speak on that. They did have a few varieties of sushi, family member said it was very good. The cost for 2 adults and 1 child was over $40
