China Chef is a family favorite, especially the lunch buffet. The food is fresh and flavorful! I especially love the green beans, and the honey chicken. The fried rice is wonderful too!

We make regular visits to China Chef--for dinners and for their excellent lunch buffet. The variety and quality of the buffet is unbeatable and is low-priced, too!

Lunch buffet is fresh and inexpensive. Buffet Rangoons are made with thin wrap and filled full. Off the menu Rangoons are made with a thicker wrap, not as good. Other that that, always been a good experience.
