We have been to Jumbo China Buffet many times and never have been disappointed with the food. They have many many different dishes, and the food is always fresh with the platters kept full. In addition, they do a great hibachi and also have lots of fresh sushi. For those who don't care for any oriental food, there are items... More

Their sushi is delicious, fresh and varied. The salmon used in any of the sushi is always superb-buttery and tasty! It is definitely family friendly, not inexpensive but worth the few dollars more for quality food. Hibachi, Sushi, Carved meats, fish, fresh fruits and kid friendly choices.

You can find almost any Chinese dish and other ethinic food items. Run very professionally. Other Buffets could not keep up with them and they have disappeared,this one stays because it is the best . You get what you apy for and more. Always hot always fresh. Keep up the good work.

This place has its ups and downs, and this time while the food was good the staff pretty much sucked. No smiles, with looks like why are you here, eat fast and get out even though the place wasn't crowded. They sat us by one of their cleanup areas which stank from the scrapings of plates. Our waitress seemed to... More

We were traveling though at lunchtime and saw this large restaurant in a strip mall and thought we not. Boy were we glad we did. It was bright, clean and service was above average. The food covered a large range. I had raw clams, hot and sour soup, dumplings, sushi, and tasted several entrees inluding beef, pork, fish and chicken.... More

Everything you could want is on the buffet!! ...including some exotic items. The only problem is that some piggish customers make it difficult for them to offer adequate crab legs. But, there are so many other offerings that it is not necessary to fight over the crab legs. The raw fish is excellent and there are many varieties of fish... More

A lot of choices and if you find something you have not had before, you can take a small amount at first to see if you like. Sushi is fresh and we really enjoy everything we have tried. Lots of seafood and a very nice large sushi bar, which my grandson loves. Clean and very well kept. You will find... More
