We visited this restaurant last night at around 8pm. Our initial look at the buffet looked like the food had been sitting a while, not real fresh. But, after a long day and we were already there.. we each made a plate from the limited choices and discovered that most of the food was cold, or luke warm at best.... More

They used to have a great buffet at a reasonable price, but about a year or so ago they raised their prices and we just don't feel what is offered is worth the price.

The food is ok, and a good selection and the servers are nice. There is also a sushi bar. What I found uncomfortable is this place is kinda dirty and looks kinda run down outside. We had to second guess if it was open or not.

Okay variety of choices at the buffet. Sushi was good as many other reviewers have stated, one of the reasons for going as this was our first visit. We are new to SC and are trying various locations to eat. If I were in the area I might go back but would not make the 25 minute trip. Servers were... More

About 20 minutes from the hotel in Ft. Mill. Worth the drive, maybe a couple of dollars more than others of this type. Food was hot, tasted good, staff was attentive, kept refilling my iced tea without being asked.

Finishing my dinner at China Buffet. Buffet has variety, spicy shrimp good, vegetables ok, the sushi was very good. The chef will gladly cook what you want on the menu. Over all ok but been to better in Houston. Tip the chef he works more than the waitress.

Pretty good selection for a buffet, very good sushi too. Sushi are made fresh while you wait. I notice that the fish they are using are very fresh compare to other chinese buffet. Love the clams too. Always pack during lunch time. A bit too expensive for lunch though $15 for adult and $12 for kids 12 and under. Good... More

Horrible! Not a single thing was good. Left hungry and with a bad taste in our mouths. Almost $30 for lunch buffet that was inedible.

We did not try the sushi, but sampled nearly everything else offered. Some of the dishes were not quite as warm as they should be but this is an economical place to dine and a decent choice for a family
