China Buffet is the go to place for a great assortment of delicious food. Shrimp, chicken, salmon, beef and sushi. Salad bar and deserts too. If you leave hungry it's your own fault!

China Buffet is always a great place to eat. The wide assortment of dishes is a treat. Food is always good. Plenty to choose from. If you leave hungry it's your own fault!

A friend and I stopped on our way back to Ohio. We were pleasantly surprised by the variety of food on the buffet. I recommend the Mongolian Chicken for sure! The sushi was fresh and we saw many of the dishes being filled with fresh food from the kitchen. Bathroom was clean and the price was right. Worth your time!

This was a decent, American Chinese Buffet. Lots of salt and lots of MSG, but will fill (read "overflow") your stomach without breaking the bank. This is probably the most bang for your buck in Charleston if you're wanting American Chinese, not authentic, high-dollar cuisine.

I have been here several times day and evening. I love the evening best because they bring out different dishes. Either time is great though. They have a great coconut shrimp ball, and the chicken wrap pieces look plain but ohh so good. The evenings they have frog legs and other extras most don't have. Their mac and cheese was... More

A little jaunt off the interstate but well worth it. $7.32. Food was great, place was clean and in a safe neighborhood. Only reason I didnt 5 star is because waitress was not as friendly as we like. She took care of us but never cracked a smile as was very "stern looking".
