Friday Lenten buffet was fabulous! Attentive waiters, great service. Compared to Golden Dragon Lenten buffet which was lousy. No comparison! House of China wins by a mile.

It's an average chinese takeout/buffet restaurant like you will find everywhere. All in all it's nothing special on food, quality and service...it's just an option if you are looking to calm to hunger.

The food was mediocre and we had to go through many plates to find a clean to use. Service was fair; but the food not very good. Definitely not go there again.
