Almost all the food was cold. The Mongolian Barbeque needed cleaned as for tasted scorched. Usually judge a Chinese restaurant by how good their hot and sour soup was. Unfortunately there's was about a 2 out of 10. Highly doubtful I'd ever come back.

We went through the buffet and had a hard time finding anything that was more than warm on the buffet. I would not recommend this place until their temps are consistent with "hot food".

Everything was cold. Restrooms not very clean. Seats in booths were very worn. And you sank down in them. I love chinese food but it was pretty rough her

This restaurant has a small buffet which is not bad. They keep it stocked quite regularly. Very attentive wait staff.

Bluffs China Buffet has an excellent buffet and also most days a cooking grill where you can select ingredients and have it cooked. Food is very good and the staff is friendly.

The food was cold and not very good, and it was during the lunch rush. Not a very big selection of food either, would not recommend this place!

Cold food, old food, we complained nicely and quietly. They charged us a little over 20$$. We told them all we did was taste some food, took a couple bites and were disappointed. We didn't want to pay for two dinners,we were willing to pay...More
