I've been wanting to try the buffet at China Luck for quite some time. I arrived at 11 AM and got one of the few remaining tables. From that point on, the place was packed. The buffets (there were 3) had an amazing variety. Everything was hot and fresh. They keep things filled and refreshed frequently. I got to try... More

The place was rather empty, but the service was still on the slow side. It seemed they were busy preparing the take-out orders. The staff were friendly, though. The food was fine, but nothing special. I've eaten at many Chinese restaurants that were much more delicious. In terms of price this one was somewhere in the middle. It's a decent... More

This is by far the best Chinese food in our area. I have visited every one in Rapid City. I only had 1 bad experience, and they rectified it. I luv the Mongolian Triple, and their Chicken Egg Foo Young. The sweet & sour chicken, Seasame chicken is like everyone elses. I'm not a fan - period - doesn't matter... More

Traveled all the way to from ct in search of dinner. Found this hidden jem , all homemade food. The wonton soup had a very flavorful beef based broth. The entree came with a wonderful homemade eggroll that had an unique texture and flavor. Food was prompt and server was very friendly. If your in town this is a very... More

We only saw one person serving and the five meals came out one at a time. The egg drop soup had a fishy taste (I was the only person having soup). I rest of the meal was okay, not great. We are here for a week and won't be going back.

We both dinner combos, I had Mongolian Beef and my wife had Beef with Broccoli. Included were three appetizers The meat was tasty and just a little tough. Everything else was fine. Service was great and very pleasant. Price was reasonable. Would return again.

We go here often, it is my grandchildren's favorite place to eat. New owners have added some new twists, Cocconut shrimp is wonderful and they still have all the expected favorites.

This is, by far, our favorite take out Chinese food in Rapid City. The staff is very attentive and is genuinely concerned for their guests. The food is always prepared very well with outstanding flavor and good quantity. Highly recommend this option.

This has always been my favorite Chinese food in Rapid. We always get Take-out. I stopped in March and found out there were New owners. I ordered the same food we usually get... and could not have been happier. The Mongolian Triple and Chicken Egg Foo Young were fantastic. I stopped back again a week ago to try it again...... More

Have never been to the restaurant itself, we always get delivery. We have their food at least once or twice a month. Small delivery charge but you get plenty of great food. Worth the price. $-$$
