Been going to Lake Tahoe for years, and when not eating at a casino, eat here. Dinner during week is $12.50 for adult. Has typical appetisers-pot stickers, spring roll, some dim sum, fruit, lettuce, a soup and about 24 hot dishes; chicken, sweet & sour, etc., black bean mussels, clams, honey/salted/deep fried shrimp, brocolli beef, garlic string beans etc. Also...

Primarily a buffet, there were few items (none were labeled, so you were guessing a lot), and quality seemed low. There were a lot of seafood items, but that's not what we were looking for. We won't go back.

We were staying with family in South Tahoe not wanting to go to a casino for dinner. We were all in the mood for Chinese food. A warm evening, lots of traffic to contend with but eventually we found the place. Not easy!! Be on the lookout for what looks like a refurbished long forest green building with a few... More

I am in Lake Tahoe and was looking for a lunch buffet on a Tuesday. I asked around and the casino hotels do not do a lunch buffet. A young lady at my hotel's Reception told me about the lunch buffet at Hunan Garden.The place is about four miles west of Stateline and poorly sign-posted. Despite its name it is... More

If you are looking for a run of the mill Chinese Buffet, this one will do. Sporadically replenished food, mildly friendly staff. There's not much to distinguish it from any other Chinese Buffet. ~$12 per adult FYI.

Very large portions if you order off the menu - we had enough food for two substantial dinners Apres ski. However, they really pushed the buffet and the atmosphere is not conducive to dining - it is more like grazing. The servers were not particularly engaging but did keep the buffet constantly stalked for those there to graze.

We did not expect much. This restaurant came as a pleasant surprise. Affordable and reasonable price for buffet. Tiramisu is very yummy. Good spread of protein and fibers. Highly recommended for people looking for Asian food in Lake Tahoe

Typical Chinese buffet with lots of chicken, beef, pork and seafood dishes. The crunchy green beans are the best I've tasted. We ordered the salt and pepper calamari to go but it was so good we ended up eating everything at the restaurant. Would love to have more sushi and dessert choices though. Good food at a great price. Definitely... More

Stayed at Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel and dad wants to eat Chinese. Not much choices as this is a small place. A few tables and one line of food choices. Whatever they have are good and tastes "clean" as well. Waiters are pretty old and may not be able to anticipate your needs. Just give them a wave and they... More
