There were a good variety of choices of Chinese food, hot and well seasoned. The non-Chinese good items looked good, too. As buffets go, this is good in my book!

To me and my family this is the best Buffet upstate NY and we have been to just about all of them. The food is always good when we go. Sometimes the only issue is the waiter/waitress is slow getting the plates off the table...More

Chinese buffets are usually a dime a dozen, but not so at Dragon Buffet. It's Chinese and American food paired together and there's plenty of it. I go simply for the chance to get decent Chinese, and again, plenty of it. The Wonton Soup is...More

Ok, I've been here like 3 times. I have tried the seafood and would generally stay away. If you can go after the crablegs when they first come out, do it, otherwise some of the items sit for awhile. The standard fare general tso and...More
