This is the stereotypical Chinese American place where they specialize in quantity over quality in providing "Chinese" food to people who seem convinced that batter and deep frying with small chunks of meat and veggies is exotic. It was honestly difficult to find anything to eat of any quality. Sweet and sour this and that wears thin fast.They didn't help... More

For a food buffet it is good , I am not a buffet person but I was very pleased with this place . The buffet is huge , lots of choices my favorite was the home made donuts . They even have a sauté grill where you can have your dishes made to order

Low price, High quality or Fast service. I've heard you can have 2 but not 3. China Sun disproves this axiom. We've eaten here three times on our way from California to Vancouver and have never had to wait, the food in the buffet is always good (plus there's a Mongolian style BBQ option) and the price is reasonable. It's... More

Staff who were handling money as well as hostessing were sitting in the dining area making crab puffs at a table behind me. No gloves on. Never once stopping to wash their hands. We got up and left. This is how illness is caused. Never going there again. I gave one star because I had to give a rating. I... More

Since we did not have any company for Christmas my husband and I decided to go to a movie and out to dinner for Christmas Day. This year even fewer places were open than in years past so we ended up at China Sun. We were warmly greeted and seated immediately in spite of how busy it was. I thought... More

We were going to split a 3 item at Panda but it was raining. We could see this place looked busy so we gave it a try. Some dishes were better than others but we are going to try the other Chinese Buffets in the area before we pick a favorite. I don't think it will be this one.

We had not visited this place in over two years and the manager remembered our family. Price seems a bit steep for what you get- a bit lacking in the seafood arena like other Chinese buffets - all I saw was snow crab legs, fried shrimp and boiled shrimp. The key thing I like about this buffet is the meat... More

Hungry for Chinese food so gave it a shot. Staff friendly atmosphere not so great. Gave it a 3 as food was just Luke warm and I didn't find anything that stood out just average buffet food. There was plenty to eat didn't leave hungry. It was OK but I probably won't revisit it again. I love Chinese food I... More

In my experience, Asian buffets are dingy, and lack good food quality. Not so with this restaurant. Everything was clean, fresh, and in good supply. The seafood is tasty and fresh. I like this place!

Lots of choices but all average at best. Spoiled by historical Chinese buffets in other cities. These are a dying breed in Eugene. Best aspect is their Mongolian grill option. But we will not be back.
