I have been here a couple years back and it was fine but with this new update I love it! A whole different variety of food and a sushi bar with a person making them! Very impressed and for a good price!

I really tried to like this place, but they come up short - especially for the higher price. While selection is sufficient, the quality is just not there. Sushi/sashimi, soups, and desserts. We ate there around 7pm on a weekday, and not good. Main complaint was temperature of food - as hot items were only slightly warm. I'm sure it... More

I haven't had buffet food in about a decade and since I knew Chinese was what I wanted but couldn't decide where to go or what to get I stopped in here. It was OK I suppose. Large selection and all seemed fresh.

We used to enjoy going to China Bear, mostly for the crab legs on the buffet. Not only do they no longer serve them there, the quality of food has gone down hill. The green beans still had the strings, the cream cheese in the sushi was bad and my husband wouldn't go in the men's room again after seeing... More

Not fantastic but would go again. The place is large inside and able to handle large crowds without crowding. Buffet was clean and service was good. Price was competitive

I been to China Bear couple of times already. The restaurant looks fancy but its food is totally the opposite. The few times I ate from here I threw up and made my stomach very upset. The staff is very pushy, unfriendly and rude. After you serve the second plate they are staring at you like it's time to go.... More

You won't find this review on B 4 U Eat because they chose not to print.I smell conflict of interest. Anyway, China Bear is my local buffet. Average food for about $12. I personally go to get the limited sushi. Its a buffet and most are similar in this price range. For good quality sushi and sashimi I gladly travel... More
