The buffet has something for everyone. I enjoy their General Tso chicken which is my favorite. The restaurant is clean and personnel are friendly. You can't go away hungry.

I love to go to Zeng's for their buffet.....this way I get all the different chicken dishes. The ladies that run and wait are very friendly and efficient. This is a restaurant that I visit weekly.

In my opinion Zengs is the best Chinese buffet in the area. Also great take-out. I've been going to this restaurant for years. There are times when there is not enough food on the buffet but that issue is soon taken care of.

The food is okay here. There is not a lot of choices in Shallotte if you have a hankering for Chinese. It's reasonable in price. The buffet has a nice variety

We're locals who ate here for the first time in several years. We were underwhelmed to say the least. Average buffet (with cold food that should have been warm, by the way). Ordinary interior that needed a facelift.
