I usually visit this restaurant with friends but today I went myself. I ordered an excellent meal and there was so much that I had to take the rest of it home. Everything was delicious. And if you like their tea, you can buy soem to take home. The waitress, Nicole, was excellent.

It has not improved from 2 years ago. Many other places in town better and will NOT return. All appeared to have been frozen product and the veggies were also frozen out of the bag.

Coming from the New York area the buffet offering was not quite what we're use to and some of the food also contained MSG. Service was friendly and helpful. Two buses arrived towards the end of our meal and the buffet was pretty much wiped out.

I made the mistake of trying China Hill on a Friday evening. The place is obviously popular, and I had heard good things about it. I was getting takeout dinner, to drive home half an hour away. I ordered crab rangoon appetizer and a couple of main dishes, and sat in the lobby, in the chairs right in front of... More

The food was what I expect from a Chinese place. Nothing to special but it was tasty and filling. They won some award for their Bloody Mary's... I tried one and was not impressed. Service was ok.

My friend and I met for an early dinner and decided to have the buffet after just one peek. The salad bar is phenomenal as is the dessert bar. They have two soups to choose from and several delicious dishes including mac and cheese which is not usually on a Chinese buffet. Sushi was beautiful although I do not care... More

Nasty owner, was short with me when I asked about the buffet. Food was poor quality. This is the ONLY time that we have ever thrown out our Chinese food leftovers. We used to look forward to our visits to China Hill, never again.

I have been here several times, and it is good, but it is typical Chinese food. It is a favorite with locals and always seems to be fairly busy.
