Our family gets the same items as take out. It’s hit or miss whether the food is to our expectation. The take out experience is always exceptional.
Very reasonable & affordable price!! Food is good and fresh too… My friends and co-workers like to order their food for our parties and our lunches… Great deal! The buffet is always full and always tasty and hot. I see the 1 bad review from 2009 and the place has been under new owners for 3 years now and the staff are more than helpful. (The booths were repaired long ago. Seems the booth guy lied to the owners promising leather and delivering sprayed fake junk bonded leather.) Everything is so good. From the bourbon chicken to the rice and lo mein, mei fun dishes to the various beef and chicken dishes, College Buffet really delivers the goods. Our family have been regular customers during home football games since the new owners took over. There is a ton of fresh fruit, a selection of sushi, even ice cream tucked away in the corner, along with all the usual chinese dishes. No pressure here. Just sit, order your tea or soda and get eating! Really love this place and the people!
Very fair price for all you can eat. The servers are on getting refills before you can even ask. Food is very good, all around great place to eat.
The only problem with this place is that it is tooooooo small. That leads to an eat and get out atmosphere unless you visit while PSU is out of session. Food excellent. Service quick and complete. Friendly staff who remember their customers. It actually seems overstaff for its size until you see the steady stream of carryout orders. Been there >30 times since they opened about 1/1/14. Just one bad meal. we love it.
Great food, Service is so haphazard it is funny. One of the three main dishes was served without rice, She went to fetch and forgot to bring the requested forks. When the next waitress brought out the second dish, the first remember the forks. THIS IS AN IMPROVEMENT OVER PREVIOUS VISITS. That said my family and friends have taken to looking at the service as a fun thing to talk about. The Hot Pot is a great place to spend an afternoon with friends slowly cooking and eating while talking. Bring your own bottle if alcohol is needed. Come for the food, enjoy the service
This is the worst experience with any restaurant I have ever experienced. Do not order delivery from this establishment.I ordered delivery from China Dragon yesterday and my girlfriend and I proceeded to starve waiting for over an hour and a half for them to drive the food the four blocks to my apartment. I literally could have walked there in two to three minutes.About an hour in I tried to call to cancel the order to just get food from somewhere else, but the woman told me the food was on the way and hung up on me as soon as I said I was calling about a delivery order I placed.I had placed the order online and tipped generously when I placed the order, so when we finally got the food about an hour and 40 minutes after placing the order I called China Dragon to cancel the tip, as you can imagine--I wasn't pleased with the service. I was completely calm and respectful in my call, and yet the woman who answered argued with, yelled at and berated me. She refused to cancel the tip, she said I would have to contact online, but refused to give me an email, number, or explain further, and instead yelled and hung up on me. I called back to attempt to get the number but again she yelled loudly, insulted and hung up. I was completely calm and collected through all of this and simply asked for the number.Upon calling a third time - no answer. This went on for several attempts, and then a man answered. I calmly and respectfully asked how I might cancel the generous tip I had given for the poor service. Different person, but more of the same. Yelling, berating and insulting. It was disgusting. This is the least professional and most disrespectful establishment. Horrendous customer service.Then the food: Well, as you can imagine, it was cold on delivery. Not only that, but it was very bad. Although I knew I would never do business with China Dragon ever again by any circumstance, I did give it a chance. However, it was just so bad. The fried rice was the worst I've ever encountered and the orange chicken was just terrible. My girlfriend had the broccoli and shrimp, which was nothing special.I never did get the tip back, and instead came here so that others might learn from my experience. The food honestly made me sick - physically ill. And I'm not being biased from the terrible customer service either.There are tons of asian food choices in State College - take my advice and stay away from this dump. Horrible hospitality and horrible food - just terrible people from my experience.If you want good asian food try Hunan Wok & Okinawa, they are cheaper, much better food and much better service - delivery usually takes about 10 minutes and they are much further from me than China Dragon. Maki Yaki is also very good. Even Uncle Chen's has better asian food.Order/Eat at China Dragon at your own risk. You have been warned.
