I went to an all you can eat Chinese place in Las Vegas, when I lived there. It was great cuz I really love Cream Cheese Crab Wontons and for the one price I got all I wanted. :) I was in heaven. Only went once in the three and a half years I lived there but it was memorable. I really like Panda Express but cant afford it too often in fact in the five years I havelived here in the Salt Lake area Ive only went once. So I did a search for an all you can eat Chinese Buffet and it brought me here to Chinese Gourmet. And I used to live really close to it and know where it is located. What I was wondering if anyone could tell me what the lunch and dinner costs areper person, so if I have the funds my family and I could consider dining at Chinese Gourmet. Then I could write my own raving review. From what I have read it sounds really good.

I have been coming here since I was little, I used to go with my father almost once a week. The mongolian Barbeque is to die for, and the salad bar is spectacular! Eat all the awesome food you want, for cheap. I lately had been going to another one a little further away from me for the all you can eat crab legs, which are an every night thing, but tonight I am eating at my old resting spot ;-). Treat yourself, you'll see why there are so many great reviews!

It's truly interesting reading the negative comments on here obviously made by jealous competitors! The truth is that this buffet is the highest quality and tastiest for the money! The main time that I go here is on fridays. Their friday dinners include all you can eat prime rib, butterflyed fried shrimp, steak, salmon, as well as a seemingly endless array of all the delicious Chinese dishes that you can eat. And their desserts, for a buffet, are scrumptious! Hint: Arrive there BEFORE 4:00 pm and you can get the dinner (which starts at 4;00) for the lunch price! This includes their prime rib dinner buffet on fridays! As an expert on Chinese cuisine, I'm telling you that this is a deal that you can't beat (especially if you get the senior lunch price)! Bon Apetit!
I have gone to the Chinese Gourmet alot of times, and some times are better then others. So times you get seated right away and other times it take time. The food is ok, some days are better then other days. I do think they over charge for kids though. I think kids under 3 should be free. The bathrooms are not always clean. The servers have much to be desired. There again some are better then others.
While its nice to have a bufffet style of food, sometimes quality is better than quantity. Depending on the day of the week and the type of food served will depend alot on how you experience this place. The food quite often has been sitting for long periods, and often is under cooked. Frequently some dishes like the vegtables are sour tasting.
The food of edible. Although if other options are available, take them. The staff seem to be poor english speakers and irritated that they have to assist you. The best part is the mongolian BBQ section as you can at least be sure your getting somewhat fresh food.
Not recommended if possible to avoid, do so.

This is my first review of any restaurant but not my first chinese buffet by far. I used to frequent another local buffet for the crab legs, which are kinda small, but after the first time at the Chinese Buffet I have been back several times. The price is comparable to any other but the variety is far more extensive. They have quite a large salad selection and Mongolian BBQ section. I try to go most fridays for the roast beef and Whitefish. The roast beef does tend to have a lot of fat but you can go back for as much as you want. It has a nice texture and flavor too, especially with the plentiful Au Jus and horseradish sauces. The Whitefish is very tender and has a nice flavor to it. Their fried butterfly shrimp is very tasety also. I will be going there tonight as a matter of fact. There are long lines at peak dinner times but that is just a testiment to the quality of the place. Hundreds of people can't all be wrong.

We've eaten here once in the time we've lived in Utah. The prices are reasonable for an adult dinner and the fact that you're getting such a large buffet full of options. The food is about what I'd consider average. It's edible, there's a couple good dishes, but it's not the best I've had either.
It's what you'd expect at an American-Chinese buffet.
Would eat here again, but it's not on the top of my list.
The servers were slightly impatient with us, as it was closing within an hour, but the greeting at the front door was polite and cheerful.
