This Chinese buffet restaurant located in Cevahir, one of the biggest malls of Istanbul, has been quite popular for the past few years. You can choose among a variety of dishes, from noodles to rice and to vegetable and meat / chicken dishes is s good option if you are in Cevahir Mall and would like to have Chinese food.

When you make shopping on this very big mall, I guess Great Dong Fang is a good address to eat.They have an open buffet which is quite satisfactory. The price is very reasonable. And also, if you want to try something different and are afraid of Chinese cuisine, this will be a great chance to try from everything on the... More

Since we don't have much for Chinese food in Antalya, I always look forward to eating at Great Dong Fang's Chinese buffet. The price is now 23 TL but for the range and amount of food available, it is still a bargain. I personally enjoy the sweet and sour chicken and kung po chicken. Check it out if you're hungry...

Even though we ordered two bottles of 35 Lira wine, they charged us for 45 Lira for each bottle and the waiter said "we were out of the wines that you ordered, so we brought the more expensive ones". When we asked "why nobody makes any explanation?" they said "we don't know". My husband and I were shocked. We'll never... More

Heard about it from a friend before going to Istanbul, and the day we arrived, we headed straight to Cevahir mall and up to the last floor. Not a big place, but a decent place for a good cheap meal, full of flavor. good to try when you get tired of the normal barbecue food you find everywhere...

Average buffet by international standards of the "eat as much as you like" genre, however the grilled meat dumplings on the buffet are excellent. Ordered the crispy duck from extensive menu but it was very dissapointing. If the same effort that went into the home made dumplings was applied to the rest of the menu this could be both a... More
