I have stopped in here periodically, each time I do I hope it has improved, but to no avail. They do have a larger buffet than the other places in town, however even though the steam tables are on, the food is quite often cold,...More

The food is very good, there is a wide variety of food on the buffet.I tried a little of everything and it all was excellent. Waitress is very polite and soon as your drink was empty she was there asking if you would like another.

The food is usually good and a nice variety. The time of day seems to be critical if you want the food to be hot in temperature. The wait staff are oriental, many do not speak English, only just enough to get them by. All...More

There is a vast assortment of delicious Chinese food as well as a sushi bar. The soups are very tasty, and ice cream is provided for a free dessert. The staff is attentive and friendly at this family restaurant.

We have been going to Grand China Buffet for years. Out of the Chinese places in the area, we love this one the best! The food is good, and the price is good. What more can you ask for?

Yeah, it's drabby and could use a decor update, but we loved the food. I'm surprised by the few bad reviews I've read. The peanut chicken was awesome! My husband loved the coconut shrimp. Very reasonable prices. Didn't have many beef or pork dishes, bee...More

Terrible food. Ok service. With other options in the area this should be your last choice if you make a choice at all.

Terrible food, servers are strange...as in, they watch everything you do. I had to spit out several things into my napkin due to it just being that gross. Waste of money. Barely edible eats, though for me I'd say INEDIBLE food. So, with that said,...More
