“Pretty good ”
Reviewed 13 June 2014 via mobile

Stopped in on a quick business lunch. Some of the items were very good and some were bland. But it is fast and not expensive. Pretty good.

“Yum to Yuck”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

We frequent Asian buffets throughout the Chicago area. We know that it's better to go at busy times, when items tend to be replenished more frequently; that recipes/ingredients aimed towards Asian customers are preferable to "westernized" fare; and to skip stuff like eggrolls, crab rangoon, and those scrawny crab legs that people tend to hog.

Having said that, we rate Mongolian China Buffet in the middle of the pack. The restaurant is clean, well appointed, and easy to navigate. Their buffet has more variety than many, but the quality varies. The sushi bar is in a room off to the side and items are attractively presented, but several different rolls looked and tasted pretty much alike, their quality no different than packaged grocery store sushi. Soups were average. Nice variety of steamed dumplings and buns, and very good noodle dishes. Best were the mussels in black bean sauce and crystal shrimp. Thumbs-down on ice-cold Mongolian beef, several entrees with bland, overcooked meats & veggies, and other dishes that tasted well past their prime on a Saturday at 6 PM.

The Friday night & weekend tariff is $15.99 (not including beverage). Other places where we've experienced better quality and value include Senoya (Niles) and Hibachi Grill (Elk Grove Village).

“Good Chinese Buffet - wide variety of food”
Reviewed 25 March 2013

The Mongolian China Buffet is reasonably priced with a wide variety of food -- from a whole sushi bar, multiple types of meat dishes (Chicken with vegetables, Beef & Pepper, General Tso's Chicken, etc), fish, fruit, potatoes (the list goes on). The space was very clean, and and two large rooms for seating. Will definitely visit again.

“Good value Good choice”
Reviewed 19 December 2012

Chinese buffets are a dime a dozen but this one is cleaner than most, neat, with interesting Asian salads and a decent sushi roll selection. Mongolian barbque is nice, too. Good choice if the mood hits you.
