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.
