China House is consistently good and the service is always fast and friendly. Some real surprises if you look the buffet over. Their fried scallops are among the best I've had and their fried rice is excellent ! Price is very low !

Been going for years so it is nice to see we can review the restaurant here. We are regulars because of many things- we like their food and selection, though limited by some standards, and we are remembered so well that the drinks come to the table without asking. If a dish is out, then just ask and they get... More

This place has been here longer than I have and it's never disappointed. They're always willing to make adaptations to the menu to suit what you want. If anyone is debating on what to get, I highly recommend the crab rangoons.

I've eaten at the China Buffet many times. The food is good, although if you get there at off hours it tends to be cold because of it sitting out. The staff is friendly and attentive and the place is pretty darn clean for a chinese buffet. Best of all you can't beat the price for the amount of food... More

I wanted to try this Chinese buffet before moving out of the area, and today was the day! I don't have any real complaints, I guess I was hoping for more, thats all.

The restaurant is in a good location for quick take-out American-Chinese food. Usually portions are very good and service is quick. However, the last two times I recently went for take out, I arrived home to find rice portions incredibly small. Container for chicken and broccoli was primarily broccoli, a bit of chicken and no more than a couple tablespoons... More

The food is freshly cooked and the staff is friendly. The food is unremarkable Chinese food. Tasty, but nothing special.

If you're looking for healthy choices, look elsewhere....this is an "all you can eat" buffet of deep-fried chicken and pork, high sodium sauces...typical fast food Chinese. Great if you're really hungry and don't want to spend a fortune...the folks who squeeze themselves into the booths week after week obviously don't mind.

The food is pretty standard for a Chinese buffet. The atmosphere is dirty and not well kept. The prices are very reasonable.
