My wife and I have eaten here 7 or 8 times in the last three years. We really wanted it to be our go-to buffet. Unfortunately for us, the food is just a bit short of tasty. After the first few bites, we just look at each other and one us says "bland"? and the other nods. They are very... More

The food is kept fresh, full and hot. The Sushi is good and fresh as well. Price is very reasonable. There is a fresh salad bar and hand dipped ice cream for desert. A great place for lunch and right off the freeway.

This is a small version of the grand Chinese buffet restaurants you find in larger cities. The food has a nice variety, with a bit of sushi thrown in. Don't miss the all you can eat crab nights, which are a big hit with locals.

We have eaten at the China Buffet many times over the years since it first opened. Food has stayed the same. It hasn't dropped in quality. Good food for a decent price.

Stopped in for a late lunch. I was not expecting the buffet to be great but it was!! I started with the sushi then proceeded to the other dishes. Sampled many of the chicken options. BBQ skewered chicken, jalapeno chicken, teriyaki chicken and they also had bacon wrapped pineapple chunks. Probably the best pork fried rice to date. I did... More

We have been to China Buffet many times, and enjoy it very much. However, the last 4 months, we have walked away very dissatisfied with the food . It is never hot, nor is it fresh in the lunch hour or in the 2-3 pm hour - Very much dissatisfied with the orange chicken, General Tsao's chicken, or the various... More

We had dinner at #1 China Buffet, La Grande, OR while on vacation. We had stayed nearby, but ventured out into La Grande to see what the town had to offer. Before we knew it, we were back around to our hotel and chose #1 China Buffet because there were a lot of cars there … presumably folks like the... More

I ordered Schezwan Beef, which I have had before and it was very hot. This was just great! Not too spicy, or under seasoned - it was great, and I enjoyed every bite.
