I like this place but it isn't anything special except the food. It seems fresh and a good assortment. Has american food and ice cream if you like. This is pretty much a stock Chinese buffet, nothing fancy. I've tried several in the area and continue to default to this one for casual lunch with a friend. All you can... More

My husband and I have "Date Night" every Saturday night where we eat dinner at Empire Buffet, and go grocery shopping. Exciting, I know. :) When you consider the value of going out to dinner, if you go to a fast food place you end up spending about $18-$20 for two people, so why not go to a casual sit... More

This Empire Buffet is a good Place if you want get get filled up for a fair price. The choice of different chicken, steak or seafood dishes is ok, therefore the Quality of the food is less.

Inside is a little dated but the buffet is in fact pretty good overall. We were seated very quickly and our drinks refilled when needed. Just a suggestion though: Cut down on the salt. Some of the items were very salty.

Our party included four adults and four children. Everyone found something that they loved and nothing was unsatisfactory to anyone!! Fast and friendly service complimented the food! Would suggest this restaurant to anyone who enjoys asian cuisine!

Food was weak and looked old, found a fortune cookie fortune paper in my nieces cup of egg drop soup. Gave me a $3 discount. Wow what a joke!!!!!!

Quaint buffet place in Marietta. We were seated immediately and the food was well stocked. The only negative thing is that I thought some of the items had too much sodium.

We read reviews. Parking lot packed. We gave it a try. I knew we were in trouble when I saw the rice. Absolutely one of the worst Chinese we ever had the misfortune to try. No taste in anything, not even the chicken, soup or noodles. Food was mushy, and had no color to it. I don't even know how... More
