We have been going to this buffet for a few years. Since it has changed owners we have only been a couple times because they raised the price. The food is good!!

This is a good Chinese/Asian food buffet. Convenient location and a good selection of foods. the hot sour soup is especially good. request a table rather than a booth if you have mobility concerns.

After a long day helping a friend we stopped by to eat some dinner. We were starving and they have a large assortment of food everything tasted good. The service was awesome the people were very nice. The prices we're fair especially considering the wonderful salmon I ate.

This buffet is fresh, hot and has many selections. The Mongolian grill and sushi bar is also kept fresh and has an attendant on duty at all times. The staff is quick, friendly and polite. This is a repeat customer - finally rating Pearl China Buffet #1.

Used to go here every Sunday back in the early 2000's and it was very good and popular. Over the years it went downhill and just got worse and worse. Not sure how it is these days but the last time I went was in 2013 I think and it wasn't a good experience.

The previous owners of the "Top of China" just let the place go to pot. It remained closed for some time and became an eyesore. It re-opened sometime in last October and I gave the place a visit in late January. I had visited the "Top of China" a number of times over the years and was never very satisfied.... More

I use to really enjoy this buffet. I wasn't impressed with my recent visit. The food wasn't hot. Seemed stale with bad flavors. I left very dissatisfied. I won't go back.

We used to enjoy the restaurant and eat at the site monthly, but now the food seems stale, not as in boring but truly stale tasting. We miss the almond chicken and lobster-type rolls. I have been very frustrated by ordering a diet coke or pepsi only to have it be RC (I can't stand RC); if you serve only... More

I usually don't expect much from a Chinese buffet, but this was a pleasant surprise. There is a very large selection of food to choose from. All the food looked fresh and properly prepared. The price for lunch and dinner are very reasonable. Service is minimal, but hey its a buffet. Lots of deserts for those with a sweet tooth.
