“Best Asian Buffet Period!!!!!!!!”

China Great Buffet
Ranked #34 of 165 Restaurants in El Monte
Restaurant details
Reviewed 1 March 2016

Me, my family and friends love the buffets in the San Gabriel Valley. The owner of this one is doing it right. The selection is huge and freshly cooked. We've been to just about every buffet around and I have to say that in spite of it's location (El Monte), this buffet has been consistently great for a long time. As you may know, most buffets start off strong then fizzle out within about a year...then gone. Not this one.... try it if you're in the area, you will be surprised how good this one is.

In terms of price and quantity, food quality is acceptable. Customers come in and out, many Chinese and Mexican.

Sushi is fresh. Deep fry chicken wing and small shrimp are Ok. Fried green vegetables, sweet and sour pork, fish ball soup, fried rice, Mongolian meats, fresh fruits, and the usual cakes most with too much cream. Suitable for the whole family for a general meal.

We came here when we visited our aunt in El Monte. She introduced us to this buffet. Like many Asian buffets you eat first and pay later. The selection of food items were great! Plenty to choose from including many sea food items. The flavor was so-so. You pay your drinks separately from your meal. The place was also clean but I agree that some of the service people need to smile more! Over all the food was descent and I would return again. You can get your buffet to go and it costs a little less. You get only one to-go box for to cram all the food you can get.
