Went to Oriental Buffet at lunch time. The selection of Chinese food was excellent..... Fresh, hot and replenished often.
Staff was friendly and checked on us frequently. Would go there again

Very clean, great looking and tasting choices. Lots of food for a great price. Dinner for us was $9.99 each senior rate (normal adult price $10.99 each).

“Great Food!!!”
Reviewed 5 September 2013 via mobile

I went here for dinner with my aunt & the first thing you notice is the grungy strip mall atmosphere on the outside. But don't be deterred by that, inside is the best Chinese buffet I've ever been to! The first thing I recommend is the clams in oyster sauce, the second is the steamed dumplings. They had many common items like beef broccoli & chow mein noodles. I would also recommend the fried shrimp. For dessert, they had these yummy little candied peanuts to go on top of frozen yogurt. There is quite a bit of a language barrier with they waitstaff but, you should be alright if you don't ask for anything out of the ordinary. Overall, I will be coming back here. If nothing else, for the great food.

Good value and great selection. It was very easy to over indulge. Would eat there again if in town. Would recommend it.
