My 1st time eating here. The pad thai looked great, but I hadnt had mussels in a while. They were delicious, also added a side salad with ginger dressing. I'll be back to try the pad thai next

Healthy Thai and Chinese food. Much better than typical, good portions and great service. The won ton soup was great. Medium spicy is pretty hot!

Almost missed this little gem of a restaurant. We needed to get some lunch and after checking around we found the Thai China restaurant. The buffet is real Thai, not a lot of Chinese food. Everything was very tasty and fresh. We eat a lot of Thai and this was as good or better than our normal go-to Thai place.... More

I've had the green curry with tofu here a few times, and it's really really good. My friends had other Thai and the Chinese dishes, and they liked them as well. The service was also great. I've only came here for dinner, not for the lunch buffet.

I typically avoid buffets, but a coworker recommended Thai China for lunch, and it was quite good. The food was fresh and there were a lot of options to choose from. Everything I tried tasted very good.

I gave it a 3 not 4, I would not dine in. Take out was so so...would not be a place I would visit if I lived there, but this was a vegetarian's (whom we were visiting) recommendation because of tofu and curry.

I see others have hedge words like 'fairly' good in their reviews and i feel the same. This Thai and Chinese buffet, $9 per adult, provides lots of food and a pretty good selection, but nothing in the buffet stood out as 'wow' or 'great'. If you want to fill up on an asian meal over lunchtime, it is fine.... More

My wife and I have an ongoing disagreement regarding Asian buffets. While I agree that most of them are pretty crappy and after you eat there you don't feel like you have had a good meal or were kind to your internal organs. My argument is that once in a while you find a place that does a very good... More

Visited on a whim. Large selection of items on the buffet. Quality wasn't great but what you'd expect in an all you can eat.

This place is a step up from your normal buffet. There is real Thai food, Chinese dishes and shrimp and fish tempura. There is also soup, fruit and cookies. Some one knows how to cook these dishes but keeping them on a steam table does not work for all the hot dishes. For example, the tempura is good if you... More
