I don't normally go to Chinese buffets, but my mother loved them, so in honor of her birthday, we went to LON Sen in Hendersonville. It was as good as most, better than some. I got seconds on the Mongolian Pork and Beef and Broccoli. I did not finish my hot and sour soup. The eggroll was below average. I... More

We went early and unfortunately most of the food in the trays was obviously left over from lunchtime. But good value.

Also has pizza and other choices for those who don't care for Asian. Eat here almost every time I'm in town.

Went on a busy weekday for lunch. Everyone at the table got buffet except me. I ordered chicken fried rice and wonton soup. Wonton soup was rich and delicious as it should be. Fried rice was a bit not well seasoned, basically chicken, white rice and a few carrots & peas and very overcooked egg. Think there are other Chinese... More

This use to be a Chinese restaurant on the list for those in the surrounding areas and beyond to get authentic tasting Chinese food. Not anymore (and hasn't been for a while). In the early 90's the buffet was small and they concentrated on what you ordered. Now it is not much bigger of a buffet but the food has... More

We go occasionally out for Chinese food and have found Lon Sen to be the best in Hendersonville, NC. The service is very good, the price is reasonable, wide selection on the buffet. If you order take out, it will be enough for two meals.

When you feel sick full after two bites, guess what??? MSG. My entire family got a plate and ate a few bites, we all felt sick. Asked to be excused and paid full price for crap. Enjoy folks, I won't be going back. It's almost poison in large quantities. Be careful.

Nice family place with reasonable prices. Food is fresh with several choices for the family other than Chinese.

I only order off the menu to avoid MSG. The food on the buffet will be loaded. Most of the food here is pretty good. I like their fried rice, even though it looks like white rice. Our issue is that it's just not great.
