Great food and service! This is an all you can eat buffet, with all kinds of goodies. My family and I eat here at least one a month with everything good to say.

We arrived right at opening for dinner to ensure that we got fresh, hot food. We sampled a wide variety of buffet items. Nearly all of them were at room temperature with the exception of the egg rolls and chicken wings. My wife tried the self serve ice cream and it clearly had been thawed then refrozen. The hot food...

if you are in Los Alamos on Sunday your dining options are very limited. This little Chinese buffet stands out as being the place to go. Good solid standard Chinese buffet food but an extra star for some of the nicest people I have met in New Mexico. The staff goes out of their way to ensure you are comfortable... More

If you like chicken in many different forms, this is the place. I believe I had 8 or 9 different incarnations of chicken that day as a sampler. None was bad, I just liked some more than others. The best part for me was the shrimp on the buffet. I feel I more than got my money's worth with the... More

My wife and I went to their buffet for lunch. The food was hot and fresh, and each dish had a distinctive taste (which is not always the case for Chinese buffets). I especially enjoyed the mussels.

Traveling through Los Alamos, we stopped for a late dinner. Showed up a little after 830 and the place was empty. They were kind enough to continue to serve us even though we were the only two left. Overall, for Chinese buffet, it is very solid. The food was fresh, most of it tasted pretty good, and overall I really... More

Good value for the money. Basically about like every other Chinese Buffet, maybe a little less variety. Eat until you drop. Nothing special, nothing wrong.

Constancy is an important factor in an eatery to me and China Moon hits the mark. Clean facility and a constantly full buffet service line...what more could you ask for?

I normally check out trip advisor before we try a restaurant, but had not looked at restaurants in Los Alamos. We were there at lunchtime and when we rode by the restaurant I decided I had a hunger for Chinese food. When we walked in and saw it was a buffet, I was disappointed b/c I normally do not care...

For some reason I expected more. Everyone always bragged about China Moon so we decided to try it out today. The service is great, the restaurant is clean, but the food is just ok.. no frills, no thrills. The Buffett was $8.95 a person so the price is decent. If I'm in Los Alamos I might stop by but I...
