Average Chinese buffet. I have been to other buffet restaurants with much greater selections than this one. The food was so-so and the prices were a bit aove average. Would rather go to others in the area.

I haven't had Chinese in a long time. I had the orange chicken with rice and my husband had the roasted duck both meals were so good we really enjoyed our meals, and the service was excellent! By the way my husband had left his inner jacket with his phone inside and it was returned to us promptly that was... More

This is a nice little place for eating a lot of food for $10, egg drop and wonton soup followed by all the usual Chinese dishes - chop suey, broccoli beef, General Tso's chicken, fried rice, pot stickers, noodles, crab rangoons and much more. It is good but not over the top. Warm food, not terribly hot. Nice staff, clean.... More

Their buffet consisted one "bar" of food. $17 for buffet with limited choices. I am glad before we ordered the buffet. We walked out.

We ate here for dinner after noting how quiet it was. We were immediately greeted by the staff, who were quite friendly throughout (something I note to be missing from many of the Chinese restaurants I go to). The menu was fairly typical of this type of restaurant. We found the portions to be larger than normal, and the prices... More

China Rose used to be a 3 - 4, but recently has a well deserved 2. Egg drop soup has about half the usual amount of egg, beef dishes made with meat of lesser quality, spring rolls half the diameter as before and chicken wings and drumsticks puny with a new and mediocre taste. Service is pleasant. There are too... More

This is a middle of the road Chinese restaurant. The food and service were acceptable. We were there on a Saturday night and the reastaurant was just about empty, I think only 3 tables were used.

Free port is the home of LLBean's four giant stores and the area is surrounded by outlet malls. Consequently the eateries re packed on the week end. A young lady handed us the menu from the China Rose, and a short walk later we found ourselves enjoying the lunch Buffet. ( We like a good Buffet when we are in... More

This is a nice little buffet Chinese place. The value for your money is good. If you go at an off time be prepared some of the dishes will be out and not be replaced or cold and old. But still if you wait long enough they will replace. We went on an off time so that is to be... More

Now I know the reason for white rice: soak up the grease from the food so it doesn't drip on your shirt. I have never had such greasy food from a Chinese Restaurant. How can you stir fry in 6 inch of grease? This was a sure case for TUMS and never again.
