I say this is average because compared to the other buffet Chinese & mainstream Chinese restaurants in the area, this is mediocre. The cost is rather high for the food & service offered as well.

Went past this place today and it has shut down. Mail piled up inside the door and there was a notice on the door for whoever opens the place up to call Coca-Cola Company so they can come and Retrieve their equipment.

This place was not clean and the food was very average or below. The atmosphere was unfriendly and tables were chipped and not very clean. Place was dated in the 1980's

I eat with my family at least three times a week. China first buffet is the best buffet that I have ever been. Friendly staffs and delicious food. A lots of choices starts from fresh salad bar to main dishes such as shrimp fried rice...More
