Most all you can eat buffets are very similar - lots of dishes that are very similar, emphasis on quantity over quality and a move 'em through feel. While China buffet does have a huge volume of dishes, it covers bases others leave alone. The sushi is acceptable and considering that it is all you can eat, is a welcome addition. So is the kids food line, the desert offering and the made to order bowls. While the price has gone up, it's got more to offer than the alternative all you can eat options. The location is a bit odd.

China buffet is always good. The service is good and the food tastes like it's been cooked with some pride and I really appreciate that. I am a frequent visitor and I hope to visit again in June.

Great food and great prices. Lunch buffet included all you can eat fresh sushi and it was less than $9. Make sure to tip well, with these prices you can afford to spare a little extra for the servers AND the chef making the sushi. Will definitely be back.

Mostly a pretty standard but good Chinese buffet. They had a large selection of items and everything seemed fresh. I didn't realize that there is a slightly hidden make your own hibachi area near the back that I would definitely try next time. Some stand out choices were the "house special chicken" which was very tender and had great flavor, the curry chicken, and a chocolate/coffee cake.

Been dining here since 2014, and has always been a positive experience. Great selection on the buffet tables, plus a sushi bar, for those interested. Always a clean and traditional look inside, with a well-maintained men's room, and interesting music and programming on the TV. Friendly staff, too. Great for large groups, and for dining alone. Prices are reasonable, given the great quality of their food.

I found this place extremely average, and was quite disappointed after all of the good reviews. We ate at 6pm and food was not hot, selection is mostly fried, flavorless American style Asian. We did not try the hibachi or soup but my boyfriend really enjoyed the sushi and thought it was good value. They do have a good selection of seafood if you are looking for unlimited crabs, crayfish, shrimp, etc.

We go almost once a week. We moved back to NC and were glad to find something like this close to us. Great selection, comfortable surroundings, and friendly wait staff. It is a place we recommend to friends and family.

Not very pleased ... Food was cold. Service was not very good ... A little over priced for the quality of food and service ....

Went here for my father's birthday, food was meh. Definitely not aesthetic food, even tho some places sell the best non aesthetic Chinese food. Just another one of those cheap places. Go here if you're hungry, by all means.

Cleaner than most Chinese buffet restaurants I have been to. Also had some selections I had never seen before that were very good. Very attentive service on clearing plates and drink refills especially for a Saturday night

Giving only 3 stars because of staff behavior. All our family 2 adults and 3 kids went to eat dinner today and told the waitress that one of my 7 year old kid don’t eat any food and see if we don’t get charged for him and we can pay 3 adults and one kid. But he apparently ate one cookie and I asked the service person one lady since he ate only one cookie do you still charge and that person talk to another person and told something to cashier. And the guy cashier coming to us telling straight we have seen your kid ate many items and is all “video recorded”. The moment I see this is not a restaurant to revisit. Doctor himself was not finding cause why my son won’t eat any food except only 3 items of home food and this guy was saying he ate many food items as if I am telling something lie and trying to cheat them for one kid meal price. Then I have challenged him to show the video if he ate then I will pay double the total price and he is changing the words that another lady told he ate. If he would have told us that we have to charge if he eats one cookie I would not have mind to pay but the above behavior made me to write this review. As you see other reviews the food is good for few items and few of them are not good. Trash is next to food area. I was trying to scoop the ice cream and it is like frozen not able to scoop. Sushi is just there and I don’t see anyone trying to take it.

While I am not a fan of all you can eat Chinese buffets, this one is decent and my kids like it. There is enough variety that everyone can find something they like. Their sushi is good and they will cook a hibachi dish for you.

Best Chinese buffet in town. Go during busy hours, though. They serve some simple dim sum for dinner on weekends, I recommend!
