It's about time a really good Chinese buffet with great service, good food, a great selection and a fairly reasonable price hit Greensoro. Took my wife last night, who is the world's worst critic of buffets and she really liked it!! The Sushi Bar is worked by a wonderful guy who really knows his skills and has put out a wide range of some of the freshest sushi I have ever had at a buffet and did I mention, it IS fresh? The, I call it, Mongolian Grill is good, close to Japanese standards, but remember, it is more Mongolian than Chinese grilling wise, so ASK for more seasoning on your dish, they will happily comply and you will be glad you did!! Oh, and tip the Sushi and Grill folks they deserve it!! The Chinese fare on the lines was always hot to warm, fresh and abundent, a tray never went but a minute from being close to empty when it was immediately filled with fresh food. Good Fresh Food Too!! Well seasoned and cooked perfect. In fact, I have a new favorite dish since going here, Coconut Chicken. The fried dishes were NOT oily and the Egg Drop soup was great. My only, and I mean only, complaint was the Steamed Crabs,...a bit mushy for my tastes. But let me say, with ALL the other dishes to sample, this was the least of my worries and the selection is HUGE!!! The wait staff was extremely friendly and never "hovered" over us, they quietly asked if we needed a plate removed or our drinks refilled at seemingly just the right moment. Very attentive!!! Talked to the owner as I was paying our tab and they DO NOT do menu item take out, just by the pound from the buffet. Reason? They want the chefs to concentrate strictly on the buffet and grill items to maintain the quality of their dishes and ensure there is always hot food available, not cooking individual meals and breaking their routine. Made sense to me. Also, the wife and I arrived around 7:15 PM and we were worried that with the dinner time crowd already gone that the food might be lacking because the "rush" was over. Not so. They don't close till 9 PM and from what we could tell, the food never let up!! Seating is ample and the decor is beautiful with plenty of parking outside. Again, thankfully there is a REALLY GOOD Chinese buffet now in Greensboro and we don't have to drive to High Point or Winston Salem for a good buffet once the urge hits. Will have to attempt a lunch time trial to see if the same dishes and service holds true with the "Lunch Crush",...maybe another review later?
I've lived in Greensboro quite a few years now, but just getting around to trying Wok and Roll that's near my neighborhood. My first order with them in July 2009 was a delivery one evening after being frustrated with Pizza Hut's online delivery price fiasco. As well, there is always more food available ordering Chinese for $10 than ordering 1 pizza at the same price. For my first Wok and Roll delivery of fried chicken, egg drop soup and chicken egg foo young with white rice, it took 1 hour and 33 minutes to arrive. This was MUCH longer than the 45 minutes promised. That was frustrating and therefore, no one received a tip. Nevertheless, the food was hot and delicious, with the food packaged well! I love Egg Foo Young passionately and for those who also love this dish, you know the gravy is what makes it. Their gravy definitely made the cut. On my second tasting of Wok and Roll in late July 2009, I actually ordered take out to see what the place was like. There are 1-2 tables inside, nothing fancy at all, no music playing. It was very hot inside also, as though the A/C was broken but they had a fan blowing hot air. Therefore, I say don't expect to eat there unless the summer heat doesn't bother you. It's really a take out/delivery restaurant. One other thing I want to note on my first visit to the restaurant is that the cooks do not wear any hair covering. This may matter to some so I thought this was important to mention. Again though, the food tastes the best of any Chinese food restaurant I've had in all of Greensboro, NC. Actually, all of the Triad! Thanks for reading my review.
I agree with the lousy customer service. We have used them only because of location. While their food is good (especially their boneless BBQ RIBS). I have had many an argument with both the wife & husband (delivery guy). Either because they screwed up my order (I had placed a fairly large order one night (about $50.00) it took them almost an hour to deliver it. When I called to see what the hell was taking so long the wife tried to tell me that we already received our order! Needless to say I blew my top. Then she said she put me on hold, came back on the line and said delivery guy lost he will be there in a few minutes. Well he got there delivered the food and left with hefty tip of course (NOT). After he left we opened the bags and containers and low and behold 95% of the order was wrong! I called up and started screaming at her, then she told me ir was the correct order! The only thing that was right was the rice & the egg rolls. I told her I wanted a completely new order. She refused to replace the rice or egg rolls, even though that would be cold by the time the new order arrived. The best place for Chinese food is GOLDEN WOK in the Target shopping center off Wendover. I used to use this place when we lived in NY, they are fantastic & their prices are fair plus they give you a lot of food.
PF Chang's is a wonderful restaurant with great food, values, service and a welcoming spirit. Let me start off with the food. It is wonderful and what I'd recommend to you is the orange peel shrimp, lettuce wraps and EVERYTHING!! It is so tasty and I miss that Pad Thai that was out for a limited time. Please bring it back!! Finally, applying for a job. They get a lot of applicants at this restaurant and when you apply they make you feel welcome and sometimes the manager that interviewed you, remembers you and eventually you have a friend. There is a manager i want to give attention to and his name is Reeves. He is a good manager who cares about his staff and customers. You are lucky if you get hired and he is your manager. Same goes to the rest of the management team. Service here is very good. Servers are pretty good at checking up on you as you eat and are very accommodating. 5 stars to PF Chang's! One of my favorite!
Hello Readers, I gave P.F. Chang's of Greensboro, NC 3 stars primarily for the inviting ambiance. I do not frequent PF's much because I find it overrated for the food, as better Chinese can be found around the Triad. I also do not frequent much due to the often long lines to wait for seating. Furthermore and oddly, as much Chinese cuisine as they sell, they do not have Duck Sauce at all. One thing that PF's did earlier this year was offer a meal deal for two as many restaurants are doing to increase business. It was an okay meal, nothing spectacular or out of the ordinary. I do not like their desserts at all and feel they should expand the dessert selection. If you're looking to get the PF experience because you've never been, I'd say go to at least get the experience. But, if you do not go, you're not missing out on much in my personal opinion. Thanks for reading my review.
Every time we go to Changs in Greensboro it is the BEST the service along with all the wait staff are the greatest!!!!!!! we are always treated as if we own the place and without fail the manager always comes by to check on us. The new Manager Emory Christian is the best Manager yet ....simply awesome and very people friendly a GENTLEMAN .The food goes without saying...always great and hot we are always eager to try something new and always satisfied...we were first introduced to Changs in Durham but the g-boro location has it beat!!!! Go eat at changs and enjoy yourself...tell them smitty and cindy sent you.....ha-ha
The most phenomenal Chinese Food in North Carolina! Every dish is unique, healthy and full of flavor, unlike every other imitation Chinese restaurant out there. The Scallion Chicken and Pork Fried Rice is to die for! If you love spicy food that is full of flavor than look no further than the Scallion Chix and PFR, although everything on the menu is worth trying at least once, I promise! Ming and Kim, who are the owners, are the most wonderful people in the world! The inside of the restaurant looks like a typical take-out spot but the food is nothing short of A-... wait for it... -MAZING!!!
Simply the best chinese food in Greensboro in my opinion. Staff is extremely friendly and courteous and always willing to help customers with anything. Price is extremely reasonable and the lunch specials are great! They are usually pretty busy but orders usually take 15-20 minutes at most to be prepared. I highly recommend Golden Wok if you're looking for a great Chinese restaurant!
This is one of the best buffets in town that I had ever been too! Had been a regular customer for years! Reasonable price for their buffet and always loved the food there! Its always fresh and really good! The owners and employees are always so sweet and kind there! Definitely would recommend this buffet and give them a try!
We don't have a China Town here so there's really no authentic chinese food around and that brown sauce/white sauce garbage on all the dishes is strictly for the clueless crowd. China Buffet is the freshest and most varied selection of dishes. I personally like the choose your own meat and veggies and they grill it.
