My husband and I went here last Friday evening for dinner. I fully expected it to be dank and dirty like most buffets I've been to, but quite the contrary. The place was clean and actually smelled good. Unfortunately the ladies room did smell bad, and there were paper towels all over the floor. The restaurant is a little dark, but still has good atmosphere, and despite it being after 5pm on a Friday, wasn't too packed. The waitress was very nice and refilled our drinks very quickly, though her English wasn't very good, she did well making small talk with us. She never rushed us to finish, maybe because I'm 7mos pregnant and I do eat a decent amount, but she never seemed to care how long we stayed. The used plates were never left on the table for more than 5 minutes. The buffet itself was clean, even the glass. You could see through it, unlike some places I've been. The food was hot, and replenished very regularly, so it was always fresh and DELICIOUS! The only food item that disappointed me were the Crab Rangoons, which were thinly filled, and the wonton was very hard. Otherwise, even the rice was flavorful! Lots of options, from typical appetizers to all kinds of vegetables. They even have a Sushi bar, with so many kinds of delicious sushi. I highly recommend China Buffet, as its the best around I've found. The price was reasonable... $10.00 per person, so after drinks it was about $25.00. Not bad considering what you get! We are planning a return trip this Friday!!
I love this place and eat here whenever I go back to Durham. I have lots of wonderful memories here including meeting and eating with Dom Deluise one night. My friend John and I had a wonderful experience here and I can't wait to go back. Friendly people, wonderful food and great atmosphere. I beg the people that have had an unpleasant experience to go back, tell the owner of the last time you were here about your experience and I guarantee you they will try and make it better.
I stopped by, thinking I was taking a chance since most of the chinese rest. I had been to were not good at all! ( I live in Wake Forest, enough said!)I ordered hot and sour soup and singapore chow mei fun. To my surprise and delight it was very good!!! I have since tried the twice cooked pork which is also good and the chicken and Broccoli. They were also good. It was nice to finally find a place that has good food. Now, I stop quite often on my way home from work.
This place is small but serve the most delicious Chinese Food than any of the other Chinese Restaurant. This is a place you what to be if you what peace and quite while eating your food. I gave this place a 5 star rate because of all there traditional meal. This place has all the things you expect a Chinese Restarurant shoud have frendly workers, and scrolls picture in the wall.
This was my first time ordering from the Bamboo House. They were very patient and had courteous customer service when I ordered over the phone. He told me he would be there in 15 minutes and he was. It was a very pleasant experience, with plenty of food, reasonable prices, and very delicious. It was a great dinner for my husband and me.
When Neo-China opened it was exciting... fresh food, contemp. athmosphere, lighter flavors. Now, well, it's still a cut above the rest but not as fresh, certainly not exciting. Service is typical Chinese speed-service but with trolleys vs. tray, bar is typical Chinese afterthought = but fast, cheap good food is why we're here, right?
The chinese food is average to good. But the Pho is great. Not enough meat but you can always go back for more at this all you can eat buffet which runs about $10 per person. Be sure to add all the fixen's like bean sprouts, cilantro, lime, and some hot sauce and you are eating good.
They are slow as crap. So, I would suggest calling in your order before going. When the person on the phone tells you it'll take 15 mins add an additional 15 mins before you leave the house. The service is average but the food is great!
Without a doubt the greatest deal I have ever encountered in my almost 50 years of dining out. The food: great, the service: great, the price: beyond great. I don't know how they can provide so many great items for such a low price.
They are slow BUT the food is HOT good and fresh and made to order SO I like that. If YOU want it fast go to a buffet where the food is already prepared. I enjoy the food when I don't want to cook. Fantastic food.
