The hubby and I were running errands and stopped by for dinner. The food is always great here. Customer service kind of sucks. The guy manager is a jerk. But the food is hot and fresh. As long as I don't have to talk to the guy, everything is wonderful!! Lol!!!

China Buffet is kind of an interesting place. My wife won't go there. But I go a few times a year for lunch. What it lacks in cleanliness, it makes up for in big buffet food. There is a lot from which to choose. Besides plenty of the typical Chinese fare, there is also a sushi 🍣 bar, a taco... More

Tried to have lunch there, it was just awful all around, including very dirty. Lots of variety but all bland and cold. We tried many different types of chicken, all of it was rubbery and cold. All the meat had a old or over microwaved taste to it. I gave up on finding edible meat and thought I'd try the... More

My husband and I brought our college aged son and his friend here tonight and I was actually embarrassed to have chosen this restaurant. The place was downright dirty. I did mention to the hostess that there was garbage all over the dining room floor and they promptly swept it.... but that was only the beginning. The food wasn't that... More

If you go early enough, you can see the staff at a big table chopping all the fresh veggies. Huge huge selection of all the usual Chinese buffet food. What separates these guys is their staff is on the ball and the place is huge. So you rarely have to wait for a line to go down to chow down!... More

Great variety, most of it tastes bad. Either freezer burned at some point or stored to long, most of the food was unappetizing.

My family and I use to love this place, quality has declined and the food is ok at it's best. The price is a bit high for the quality in my opinion.

We went to Chinese Buffet with relatives about six years ago, and we really enjoyed it. So, my wife and I were staying in Schereville, and we specifically hunted for this restaurant, and it turned out it was within walking distance from our hotel. We walked into the place and tried to converse and pay with the cashier/hostess while she... More

I agree w/ a previous reviewer, food was lukewarm at best. Soups were good. The fried items didn't have a crunch, not cooked at a high enough temp, absorbed too much oil. Calamari was salted to death, some of the dishes were flavored so similarly, you couldn't tell them apart. Stick to the basics, green beans, less ingredients the better... More
