I have been to hundreds of asian restraunts and buffets in my 46 years. I seek the best flavors, the best choices on the menu, and the best quanitity for the dollar. There are over 50 items to choose from. From hot table cooked items you choose, to the many items on the hot buffet area all the way to the cold buffet tables where you can fill your tummy with the best sushi all the way to the freshest fruits and cakes. When you think you are done, there is the icecream vending machine for chocolate/vanilla swirl or which one you like. The service and specialties are very well and as soon as your plate is empty they are there to remove it promptly. I rate Great Wall Chinese Buffet as #1 place to go. I was so confident that I took my mother, wife and girlfriend to The Great Wall Chinese Buffet for Valentines Day this year. My mother is 80 years old and she too was very impressed with the foods as well as my wife and girlfriend. As for a romantic place to take a date, the decor is lacking as well as the privacy. The background music does not fit the Chinese culture as I would want because sometimes I have heard country in the overhead speakers. This is not a place to try to put a wedding ring on a girls finger. As for a place to feed youreself and the family, it rates #1 all the way. I am hoping they will soon update the decor, music and enlarge this restraunt so there is a seperate dining area that is cozy for the wedding proposal.
i work for the post office as a city carrier and have eaten at every chinese or teriyaki place in 9 different zip codes. lets put it this way, if you get a fortune cookie at the end of your meal... chances are ive eaten there. north china garden is the best food for the best value... by far...i've paid much more for far worse food. the portions are huge. the owner is great, and always there. the food is ecxellent and fast, the wonton soup is wonderful. i go out of my way to eat lunch there on many occasions.when you go, get the beef broccoli. it is the best thing on the menu. the aroma of garlic is in your nose before you even open the container. what more can i say? except this... if the person that reviewed north china garden prior to mine disliked it so much then why did they eat there repeatedly? they may have had some bad experiences with the water glass or not liked the owner, but they liked the food. or they wouldn't have kept coming back :)
I ate here on 19 march 2012, I found it to be exactly what you expect, its a chinese buffet, not a fancy resteraunt, the food had a wide variety from shell fish, noodles, sushi and a guy who fries the food up in front of you. it was decently priced ... id say there is something there for everyone. so of course they didnt come by and ask how the food was. This is the kind of place where you can show up in flanels, be your self, pay a minimum amount of money and eat a wide spectrutsm of foods. so in closing... its a chinese buffet...if you dont need fancy and just want to pig out with friends its perfect. I also found there was not a long wait for food and the decore did in fact reflect chinese food !
