We used to enjoy going to China Bear, mostly for the crab legs on the buffet. Not only do they no longer serve them there, the quality of food has gone down hill. The green beans still had the strings, the cream cheese in the sushi was bad and my husband wouldn't go in the men's room again after seeing the condition, 2 urinals not functioning and greasy slippery floors. We both were ill after eating there. No longer worth the drive or money.

I absolutely love China Bear. It is an inexpensive buffet that really is your money's worth. The exterior of the place is fascinating. There's beautiful koi fish everywhere. Who ever bred them did an absolute wonderful job because there are over hundreds and they're all beautiful. Now onto the gift shop... They sell little knick knacks from jewelry to beautiful wooden structures. Granted it's not the best quality gift shop, but what do you expect. They're always interested finds like little crystals, chinese robs, and nice paintings. And lastly they're bamboo plants and bonsai plants are one of the best quality ones I can find in all of Houston. They're inexpensive and yet nicely grown and groomed. Every time I go I'm urged to buy another one lol. This restaurant is huge and so if their buffet options. They have lots of foods, from sushi, stir fry, crawfish, and now oysters. I went the other day and they're oysters were literally the biggest oysters I have ever seen. The food I personally think is delicious. It's not fancy, creative, and gourmet, but it's good, homey food. They have delicious mac n' cheese, green beans, fish, and more. People just need to understand that this isn't meant to be a five star restaurant. it's meant to be a family styled buffet that offers a bang for your buck. For less than twenty dollars per person, everyone is full and happy. There's even ice cream and desserts. China Bear is worth it and delicious, and I will stand by it forever because not only are my children and husband happy, my wallet is. Now the only cons I would say is the service. Most are Asian and cannot speak English very well, but all they do is give you your drink and occasionally fill it up. The food is all self- served, so I personally don't think their service is anything to cry about.

Beautiful and clean restaurant

The food is very delicious. They have a store off to the left when you enter. The staff is very attentive and friendly. They have wide selection of deserts like ice cream, slushies.

I would strongly recommend this Chinese restaurant to anyone and everyone!

horrible

It cost $40 for two people to eat. It is a large buffet but the selection is slim. The food is old and the service is slow.

The Galleria of Chinese Buffets

From the moment you begin to enter China Bear, from the parking lot, you are like.. wow! They have a small pond outside the doors that is home to many fish. Inside, you are wowed by the decor. Glazed stone benches, tables of bonsai and bamboo, and even a gift store to the left as you enter. Might I add it is not a tiny store reminiscent of any trinket store. It wraps around to another side of the building and has clothing, furniture, and paintings galore.

However, on to the food!

You will not know where to begin. The salad bar is quite decent and it even has a selection of sushi and fresh spring rolls. Beef and chicken selections to the left and seafood to the right. The broccoli beef is great and surprisingly enough, so was the shrimp fettucini. Not to sound like a ramble from Forrest Gump, but there was fried shrimp, popcorn shrimp, shrimp fried rice, boiled shrimp, shrimp fettucini, shrimp spring roll, shrimp sushi! There were three different types of salmon prepared, and numerous other fish selections. If you have someone in your party that tends to not eat as much Chinese as they do the American fares, they have chicken tenders, nuggets, macaroni, grilled pork chops, and French fries that are neither cold nor soggy.

The dessert selections are plentiful, as well. Three types of cake, several cookies, mango and coconut puddings (although the consistency was more like a jello), fresh fruits, and 3 flavors of ice cream. They even have a few frozen mixed drink machines so if you come here after work.. go ahead and order yourself a Margarita, Pina Colada or a Blue Hawaiian.

The decor is lovely. Panda bears are etched into the windows they adorn, with a slight frosted look. Aged vessels boast the culture they represent along the mirrored walls, upon glass shelves.

The staff makes sure you are taken care of. Drinks are refilled and tables are not left dirty for long.

This was definitely a place that impressed me, a fact which never happens at a buffet.

Enjoy!
