We don't usually go to buffets but the grandkids begged. Being good subservient grandparents, we stopped at New China Buffet on our way home. We'll never stop again. The interior was shabby and the restrooms stank. My granddaughter refused to use them. The food was mediocre at best and poor at worst. Some appeared to have been on the buffet... More

Stopped for lunch while out running errands. Food was good, the restaurant itself was not very clean, had too many noisy kids and the place was overall dirty. The waitress cleaned the tables, but not the floor, so watch where you step. The buffet price was reasonable and drinks were included with the price, but there are much better places... More

We tried this place on a whim because of the crowds when we were passing for lunch. They make you pay before you enter so you will not run away when you see how dirty this place is. We were seated and checked the buffet out not much selection but what we tried was mediocre. We have had better buffets... More

Food seemed to have a good flavor, but when I was there, they were almost closing in about 40 min., all the food was cold. I ask for water, and it tasted obviously as water from the sink.

There must be a hundred buffets that are better than this. Unfortunately, I stopped and ate here before checking Tripadvisor. As others have said, very dirty inside, fair food, good price. Not worth stopping if you have a choice.

This place is extrememly dirty. We should have never opted to walk to our seats after what the facility looked like. We went here because of the words, GRAND OPENING and a coupon. Basically the food was no good except the fried rice. The dining area was just plain gross and not enticing. I grabbed my chair to pull back... More

The food tastes pretty good. The restaurant is shabby and pretty dirty. Read the AZ health inspectors' reviews only after I went there. After reading them decided I won't come back.
