I have been going once or twice a month for several years. I don't know why, because the food is mediocre at best and gets worse each time, but it is the only Asian buffet left in town. I went again two days ago at 11:30 thinking the food would be fresh for lunch. Not a chance. While the soups... More

My wife is Asian, so we often try out the Asian restaurants in the areas we travel. This was our 4th visit here to the New China Buffet. The food selection was less varied than during previous visits. It is a small restaurant and was packed. Almost every table was filled. With that in mind, the food was ok, with... More

As for buffets, this is your average fodder. Nothing out of the ordinary, food quality is okay. Restaurant is clean and the service is okay. Don't go out of your way unless you're craving average Chinese food.

That should almost stay that way. Tried this place for the first time and wasn't impressed. Very limited on selection and what they did have, most of it didn't look that great. Inquired about the grill items, and just received a blank stare. Needless to say, the brochure pictures didn't look anything like the actual set-up, and the $12.99 price... More

Place was not clean, poor customer service, very stingy on food refills, and they watch you everytime to go up for more food. The good thing about it was the food was cheap. 2 hrs limit on time to eat too.

I was in town for an event today, so I cruised the main drag and found this place. My visit was right around Noon on a Saturday, and the place filled right up after I got there. I was quickly greeted by a friendly hostess and steered to a small table, as I was just by myself. That was OK,... More

I've been here before and it's been pretty good, but the ratings on YELP went down quite a bit recently. I really felt like a buffet last night so I decided to risk it and was pleasantly surprised. Still good for a buffet, and the place was clean and semi-friendly. Our waitress was very sweet and was very attentive to... More

So me boyfriend and I went here last night (7/19/13) for dinner. We have eaten here in the past with no issues. As he began to eat he found a hair in his mayo shrimp. It was deep fried in it. I took the shrimp to my server and reported it. He was very appologetic. But when the bill came... More
