Overall buffet was good. The food was FRESH. I like the variety of food their was. Also, the service was great. Always refilled my drink and asked if I needed something.

Friday Lenten buffet was fabulous! Attentive waiters, great service. Compared to Golden Dragon Lenten buffet which was lousy. No comparison! House of China wins by a mile.

Went for dinner at about 6 pm on the request of my 14 year old daughter...should have known. Place was warm and muggy inside and the servers tossing dishes (loudly) into a tub made the experience uncomfortable. The food was subpar (compared only to the last time I ate here, which wasn't great either). Food on the buffet was old... More

I honestly felt disappointed when I visited this place because the propaganda is so good that I expected more. The place is like an average Chinese food restaurant that has been around for many years. However, the food is not that great. I went to House of China with my colleagues after a long morning meeting, and we were actually... More

This has been a favorite place for 30 years and gets better with time, probably due to the number of other Chinese buffets offering competition in the area. Servers have always been pleasant and helpful. Lots of regular customers go for lunch since it's fast, but you are welcome to linger if you like. Very reasonably priced and good quality... More

We took another couple with us to enjoy this buffet. It is amazing to have so many choices and each item is cooked to perfection.

It's an average chinese takeout/buffet restaurant like you will find everywhere. All in all it's nothing special on food, quality and service...it's just an option if you are looking to calm to hunger.

The food was mediocre and we had to go through many plates to find a clean to use. Service was fair; but the food not very good. Definitely not go there again.
