Have been there several times for both lunch and dinner and have never had a bad meal. Priced reasonably and a good selection.

My husband and I go here at least once a month and usually eat the buffet although the individual plates on menu are great. The buffet has always been reasonably priced. The staff is friendly and they constantly refill buffet dishes. If one goes empty all you need do is tell them and out it comes fresh. They have everything... More

We went on a Monday evening. There was one other party of teenage boys in there another group of seniors came in while we were there. Food was average at best. I don't think all the 5star reviews are on the up and up

This is our favorite Chinese restaurant anywhere in Michigan. We always receive excellent friendly service and delicious, hot food. The buffet is the best!!! Can't beat the selection, especially the sesame chicken and the fresh garlic green beans. Love it!!

I don't usually like buffet restaurants, but China Buffet has great authentic Chinese food (I've been to China). Super friendly service too.

You can not beat this buffet. The price is (currently) $7.75pp at lunch time which is from opening until 4pm. There is such a wide variety from soup, salad, too many hot items to mention, and dessert. We went on a Saturday but around 2pm. We were afraid that since it was past the lunch rush and prior to dinner... More

Yukky if you crave authentic Chinese cuisine. Too sweet, too mass-market, Americanized, frozen, over processed pretending to be what Chinese food really is. Skip it.
