If you want explosive diarrhea and to puke your guts out into the wee morning hours...eat here. To begin with, "Great China Buffet" is not great...nor is it good, okay, or even palatable. The food is repulsive, the bathrooms are in worse condition than a truckstop, and honestly the whole place is a cesspool of filth. Normally, I would give the restaurant the benefit of the doubt, chalking the poor meal up to an "off" day in the kitchen, leave, and give it another go at a later date. Well, this time was a different story and needless to say, I will never be returning to the "Great" China Buffet.
Walking in, the food smelled pretty good and my friends and I were excited for dinner. After stupidly handing over our money to the guy behind the counter, we began to fill our plates. After about five minutes in, we realized that there wasn't much to choose from that looked fresh. When we took our first bites, EVERYTHING tasted like old grease. Giving the restaurant the benefit of the doubt, we went up and grabbed more items, hoping these would be better than the last. To our disgust, the second round was worse than the first, we put down our forks and decided it was time to go. Immediately after this, (with churning, upset stomachs) we walked to the man at the counter and politely asked for a refund. To our surprise, he sneered at us, saying "Some people like it, some people don't!" Wow...good business motto, man. We then asked the guy to talk to the manager, and the only response he could come up with was, "Manager no here today." He then asked to see our receipts, he looked at the time we payed, and rudely told us that we were in the restaurant for 30 minutes, and asked why we didn't come up right when we got there. We tried to explain how we tried multiple different items hoping that only a few dishes were yucky, but he just couldn't understand that. After about 10 minutes of arguing, and trying to get a refund, he refused and told us to leave. We called again later that night, asking for the manager's number and he refused to give us that too. All three of us got food poisoning, and wasted 13 bucks on a night of gastric distress.
The rating should be zero but is not available so we are forced to give it one star.
Over priced!! Food is terrible. They do not maintain freshly cooked food on the bar. They do not want to seat you where you would prefer with practically no one in the establishment. The crab, even when put fresh on the bar, is over cooked. Our family loves Chinese food but could hardly find anything worth eating.
I would absolutely recommend "no one" eat there.
This place is absolutly discusting. I saw that it had a 4 star rating on another web site so I took my family there to eat. Horrible mistake... all there food was cold and nasty, even the dessert's. Our stomach's where turning before we even finished our food, and needles to say we payed for it all night long. The place was also very filthy. The floors where very dirty as where the walls around the tables. The soda machine had so much build up on it the lables where brown and you could barley see what you where getting. When there are spider webs built up in the bathroom everywhere you would think someone would clean. People are very rude and don't even get you your drinks. Way to high priced for a buffet that does nothing for you and let's your plates stay on your table until you leave. Take caution if you eat here you will be very ill aferwards.

Never eat the ribs unless you smell them first. The ribs were spoiled and smelled awful. I took them home & tasted a tiny bite, but could not keep it in my mouth. I took them back to the cashier and explained that the ribs were spoiled . She rolled her eyes at me and asked me what sauce I had used on them. I told her it was their sauce in the bottom of the sack from the beef & brocoli, but was not on the ribs. I asked to have my money back. She said something to me and I did not hear her. She repeated in a rude voice Excuse me!!! She wanted by me to wipe her hands so I let her by. She had a terrible attitude and I asked why she did not apolige for the bad ribs and she said she would never do that, until I apoliged to her for standing in her way. I did not know at first I was in her way and said huh?, trying to get clairity. She gave me my money back, but never apoliged for the bad ribs. I said I would never come back, because she was so rude. She said I don't care!
Then she followed me to the door, screaming leave, followed me outside and called me a swear word. What an ordeal! If she would have been apologetic about the ribs, I might have went back. No I would not, because the place is really filthy and I mean filthy. When I walked in and saw how filthy the waiting room was, I should have left, but I was hungry and thought maybe the food is good. Big mistake!
