In December a group of us went to Chow Family Restaurant for their lunch buffet. I had only ever been to this restaurant for a supper meal and it was not the buffet so I didn't realize just how great this buffet is. Lots of variety and everything tasted wonderful!

My friend and I were craving Chinese Food and had heard that Chow Family had just recently added a buffet to their menu. It was supper time so we ventured it. You would definitely NOT be disappointed in the food. There were so many items in the buffet and it was hot and fresh. The cost was very reasonable at... More

My girlfriend and I travel to Truro to see my 2 teenage grand daughters. After a mind numbing afternoon of frenchy shopping I'm starving. We hit the buffet at about 450 pm. A little early for dinner but they start at 430. Nice crowd in there already. Cost is $17 each. We ordered a can pops and bottled beer. Let's... More

Very tasty hot buffet with variety. We got there 40 minutes before buffet was over and items were replenished the whole time. Price was 10.99 + tax for lunch which was an excellent price and staff were very friendly.

I stopped at lunch, and tried the new buffet. I loved the curry vegetables, sesame chicken and some of the noodles. My favorite has always been the eggrolls at the chow family, but they were cold and seems smaller, or less filling. I would recommend trying the buffet, and hope that they are able to control the temperature of the... More

Ordered combos that came heaped high and juices overflowing the plate and food was cold. I wonder if the food was just slopped off the buffet. Previous visits were better.

A great environment to eat in. A reasonable price for a variety of food. The service is great. Hope they can change something every few months.

We were there with a large group (50 people) and expected it to be a slow meal, but I wasn't expecting 2.5 hours. The servers were friendly but only two for our large group so it took a very long time, and two of the group were completely forgotten when the meals were brought out. My husband and I ordered...
