The Top China Buffet has been at this location for a long time and it has lasted this long because it offers a good selection of food at a fair price. The restaurant is clean and the food is good. I only eat here 3-4 times a year but that is because it is on the opposite side of Columbia... More

We were 15 people and the waitress did a good job keeping our drinks filled. The buffet has an ample assortment. The beef fried rice was good and the icecream was sufficient for dessert.

Stopped here for the buffet dinner on Christmas night We stopped in Columbia on our way to Hilton head. The rice was not fully cooked, the rangoon was over cooked and honestly when only eight people were there at dinner time I should've gone somewhere else.

I have a friend who is very picky with food and rarely eats in a restaurant, any restaurant. Once he didn't have his breakfast before going to the church and then subsequently missed the lunch there. By the time I picked him up around 1:30 PM he was hungry like hell. We drove to a nearby Chinese buffet restaurant with... More

Stopped by for lunch because it was near the office. The place was busy which is usually a sign of good food but its probably because the buffet is only $5.75 which is cheaper than fast food. The buffet was very limited, very small selection of items. The wings and the spring rolls were good, the other items I tried... More

Lot's of food for little money. During peak hours the food is much fresher. The Egg drop soup is always good on a cold day and the chicken wings are huge.

I have had the pleasure of eating at this buffet a number of times recently, and have found it to always have fresh food, and the restaurant itself is clean. Locals like myself eat here regularly. It is worth the price!

An older Chinese Buffet in Columbia, its lasted for two reasons. decent food and the lowest buffet prices in town. Nothing special with the selection, but you know you'll come out full and satisfied, Plenty of of seating. I believe it's $5.50 for the lunch buffet=excellent value.
