We went at the beginning of dinner it was so awful everything was cold. When we had told the worker that we were unhappy and she said sorry it was just a buffet. Didn't offer hot food or anything to satisfy us. Will never return or recommend!!

I love Chinese buffets. I tend to rate them higher than a lot of people do, I notice. Unfortunately, while I gave this place every chance, it just wasn't very good. Much of the food tasted like it had been sitting for quite awhile. Some of the dishes were very mediocre or tasteless. Some, like one of the chicken dishes... More

We were vacationing in the area and had a hankering for Chinese food. After a quick google search of restaurants in the area, we decided on New China. We went with takeout instead of the buffet. We got a variety of dishes (eggrolls, chow mein, moo goo gai pan,chicken/broccoli, sweet and sour chicken and general tso's.We shared the dishes, so... More

I eat here often with family and friends and the buffet is incredible in terms of taste, selection and keeping it fresh which is always tough. The owners explained new their strategy of limited buffet hours so the quality is excellent and there is no risk of foods sitting for any length of time like most buffets that try to... More

Ate at the buffet and enjoyed the variety..the service is good and there is a good choice of soups, chicken dishes, and an ice cream bar and Chinese donuts. The buffet is served on the weekends.

Its the only buffet that serves Chinese food on the island and I'd go there again anytime. But overall it has a little bit of everything for everyone. If I had to disagree on anything it be the price, but thats how all buffets are these days not just this one. Overall I liked my visit regardless of the price
