We did a take out two weeks ago and we thought it was one of the best meals we have had. Plan on going back in the near future.

Went here for lunch, was not very impressed, although the food was good, there were signs missing all over the buffet, so we had no idea what the food was, had to constantly ask someone, which was annoying; the place could use a little sprucing up as well, although not dirty, it seemed not exactly very clean, at least that...

I am not terribly familiarwith Asian food as a whole, so I don' t don't know what most of the items are supposed to taste or be like. What I DO know is items on the steam table are supposed to be warm to hot, not cold. It seems !like a few of the selections were topped off with food... More

My kids can't stop taking about how awesome China Buffet was, and keep asking when we are coming back. Especially my picky 6 year old! Her favorite of all time is Mongolian Beef. The staff was professional, the restaurant clean and the price was beyond reasonable! All around a resounding recommendation!

we've enjoyed this restaurant every time we've been. The food is HOT, Good, and a great variety. and two can eat, with tip for less than $20, including hot tea. It is busy, which helps them keep the hot food hot, the soups are great, the coconut shrimp is scrumptious and they have good ice cream and other desserts.

We visit this place often. The food is great, the inside is clean, and staff is always very nice. The buffet is plentiful and you can even fill up a container from the buffet for take out.

Big selection with items usually found on these large buffets found in most towns/cities of any size. The hot and sour soup was very good as was most everything else. The egg rolls were small with little filling and the wrappers were not crisp. The fried chicken gizzards were very tough but the sauce that went with them was excellent.... More

The food is typical Americanized Chinese buffet. Greasy, saucy, breaded and cheap. If you want to drive to lutz or Tampa I would. If you don't want to go that far your choices are as follows: china buffet, golden panda & fung garden. None are all that special. Enjoy
