Growing up in the Farmington area (going on 30 years) Arches and it's sister restaurant Golden Dragon were one of my family and I's favorite Chinese restaurants. So much so that if one of us was sick we knew to get a large egg drop soup for the ill individual. Today my husband, daughter, and I stopped in for dinner... More

Arches is honestly the best Chinese food buffet in town! It's affordable and has a lot of variety! Really the only place I like to go to for Chinese food. It's fresh and has lots of options staff is okay could be better tho especially when they're busy.

Enjoyed our lunch but make sure you get there early before 11 when the church comes out but it was good it was kind of busy afterwards after 11. But don't mind coming back soon. We had the buffet and eat dessert.

I have visited this place more times than I can remember. Great buffet! Always friendly atmosphere and staff. Wonderfully large choice of appetizers, main course foods, veggies, fruits and sweets that come in all forms! I think the prices are very reasonable and the owners are wonderful folks. No one should walk away hungry, not even the pickiest kid.....this place... More

We just stopped in without having heard of Arches to give them a try. Not as good as we'd hoped. Some of the food was very good like the shrimp dish along with the spring rolls. Not so much for the egg rolls. Overall, for the $9.95 per person we felt we should have gone elsewhere. On the plus side,... More

Service is good, and buffet is nice but the food is overly greasy and lacks flavor. Maybe good if you are hungry on a budget but will visit other restaurants if willing and able.

We have eaten here in the past and on the last visit prior to this one we did not have a good experience with the food and we gave it one more shot thinking maybe it was an off day. Boy, were we wrong! This restaurant has gone downhill! The food was terrible, not fresh, no selection, terrible flavor. the... More
