Wonderful place to dine alone or with a loved one. Better yet bring the whole family. Plenty of fresh foods of all kinds. The buffet is to die for. One of my favorite places to eat hands down. Friendly staff, clean rest rooms, and really comfortable booths. I give China Buffet an A +. I hope this information help's. The ball is in your court now. Shoot!

The food here is absolutely superb it's always hot and fresh and constantly coming.. The service here is great also they are very friendly and super accommodating.. The only downside is that they are a little on the expensive side.

I always love eating here. The food is delicious, the servers are attentive to the customers, and the atmosphere is so relaxing. They have a sushi bar and a soup bar, which has the most amazing Curry Noodle Soup. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.

China Buffet is a pretty standard Chinese food buffet. There is a decent selection of food but some classic American Chinese options such as General Tso's chicken were not present during my visit. There is a sushi bar and made to order Hibachi. The price was $18.26 per adult after tax for a week night buffet with water to drink. Food quality was good for a buffet and seemed to be refreshed regularly. Take out is also available.

Nothing fancy about the location or the service. It's simple and noncomplicated. If that's what you need. If you just want quick food no small talk. This is your place. The rolls were disgusting and half-cooked. We might have just got a bad batch. The salt and pepper shrimp, Cooked perfectly! They had about 4 shellfish options but not many chicken or beef. Example: orange chicken, sweet and sour but not Gen- so. Beef may be the 1or2 option. Sushi is not on the wow side but, it will do in a pinch. Then again I'm not a fan of fake crab meat. So there's that.

Been our favorite buffet for the past 15+ years since moving to NC. Tried all the others and nothing consistently hits the spot like here. From sushi to hibachi to the normal buffet I have never left unhappy. Used to eat here every week back in the day when i worked in the area.

It was okay. A bit small for a buffet. The variety on the buffet was underwhelming. I was expecting more based on on the "to-go" menu on the website. They were indeed busy, it's clear that some think this is a good place. For me though it was barely average. Don't get me wrong, the few things I ate were indeed good. I just wanted more variety.

Sushi was very good, and the sushi chef was friendly. The buffet was pretty good, too, but the waitress didn't come back to offer drink refills. The manager finally came over after 15 to 20 minutes of it being empty and filled it. Was fairly pricey. I think it was $33 for 2 people for lunch.

Thoroughly enjoyed my dining experience here. The building (once an Olive garden) was clean and spacious. The buffet ($15 per person) was well stocked with a wide variety of foods (frequently refreshed by servers). All the foods were tasty and hot. Our waitress checked on us three times to refill our drinks and remove our used plates. If you are hungry and want plenty of delicious food, dine at the China Buffet!😀

Weekend dinner for adult is $16.99. other prices please refer to pix below. We came on Sunday and it was so busy. Quite a bit of waiting in line but the food turnover was fast. They have a decent amount of variety and quality was alright. Hibachis grill is at the very back we almost missed it. In general it's a good experience.
