VERY BAD CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!!!On this occasion that me and my family were about to get the table. I asked the girl that was from the register, that was leading us to our sits if we can take this other table by the window. She replied to me with a an attitude "DOES IT LOOK EMPTY TO YOU??? Then the bitch chuckled at me.That f*cking bitch replied soooo rude. VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERRRY BAD CUSTOMER SERVICE!The food is great for the price that you're paying for. They are also good with picking up the dirty dishes. But that cashier at the front on March 23, 2013 at about 6:30 pm should get some customer service!!!!

I eaten here for many years but have seen a dramatic decrease in the quality of their food.Today, however, was a different story. Pasted all over their store was a banner advertising "Now Serving Lobster on weekends" with a picture of a delicious looking lobster and claws. We were seated and sent to get our lobsters only to find out they were tiny scraps, mainly shells, that were almost inedible. On top of that the "lobsters" looked like something one would find in a trash can. Thinking maybe there were real lobsters we asked the host and were informed that those things WERE lobsters. Maybe I should mention they tasted as sbad as they looked.I don't plan on going back there again. Should have read Noodle S's review before going there because I also feel coned.

I have been here three times ever, mostly because family members used to have good experiences here. Me, not so much.2 out of 3 times ever visited, resulted in mild food poisoning-like symptoms within a couple of hours. It got my dining partners suddenly ill too, so I know it just wasn't me having a weak stomach. Table and cups were dirty the last time I went too, so I just upped and left.The one time (which was also the first) that didn't have me making nauseated bathroom runs, the food was mediocre at best.You may benefit from researching for other buffets before deciding to eat at this one.

I go to this place very often and the food is awesome. There's always something that my 5 year old will agree to eat. They have a VERY large selection of food, especially sea food. I wouldn't say the place is fancy but it's clean and the service is great. My wife loves the sushi, I'm not exactly a fan of that but I do love the cheese cake! Make sure to get some green tea and miso soup too!

Food was kinda bleh and that includes the deserts. Service wasn't the greatest either. They cleaned up our plates quickly but left us dry with the drinks. I doubt I'll be back...

Talk about middle of the road (not as in they picked up roadkill...although...j/k), Chinese Grand Buffet is not the worst nor the best. It kind if is what I have come to expect from many an Asian buffet: lackluster Asian food sometimes punctuated by an odd surprise. This place has usual things like orange chicken and a lot of seafood under heatlamps. Seafood is always a tough call at places like this/buffets in general. You put it under a lamp, it's gonna get rubbery. Anyway, my aunt dragged me here because she likes the place and it was her treat so how could I say no? I will tell you this, this place has one of the most amazing food items ever- is it worth the price of admission? I don't know, but man did I fill up on their cornbread! CORNBREAD! Yes! I know, I know...of all things, right? It's not like southern cornbread that normally comes to mind. Rather, it is more like the sweet rice cakes that you get at dim sum crossed with cornbread. This weird hybrid was utterly delectable (that is if you enjoy those rice cakes). I literally filled up on these. I must have popped 20 of them in one sitting. There you are people, enjoy. Maybe these guys should ditch the buffet business and jump into the baking/dumpling business.

Went their on New Years Eve out of desperation. Pretty empty for NYE.Some food was cold and not very fresh. Sushi was lacking. Mongolian BBQ was good. Overall, very uninspiring.

AYCE Buffetts are not my fav but you get what you get here. Not bad for the price. We came here with the family on New Year's Day. They had lobster and snow crab legs. You had to be quick on the draw to get to them though. All the rest of the lineup was not memorable.

I believe that for the price, the selection and taste is great. We go for lunch and you can't get a meal like that even at a fast food restaurant at that price.

This place is pretty bad, and for several reasons. The staff is quite rude and unpleasant, they expect a tip just for bringing you water and ignoring you til your done eating, its relatively expensive (you can get much better food for less than their 'lunch special'), and the place has an ambiance of a fast food joint. I've been there twice, maybe the first time was just an accident that I didn't like it, but surely I won't be there a third time.?

Weve tried many buffets across the southland and for a Chinese Buffet, this is by far the best. Service is fast and the waiters courteous as far as chinese waiters go. The food is varied to suit most palates and to food is brought out from the kitchen at regular intervals. Price is low. Seafood is great. Sushi bar is average. You can also choose the ingredients you want to have cooked fresh and create your own meal. This isnt a la carte, but for a really casual buffet at a great price, you cant beat it.?
