My husband and I go to China Tast a few times a month - the food is always good and frest. The people work there are very friendly and they have a great lunch buffet!

I have been going to this buffet for years now. Even though I no longer work near it and live about 25 miles away - it is worth the trip. Their buffet is smaller than most but everything on it is the best tasting around. Especially the General Gau's chicken. I can't eat anyone else's now - they all pale... More

If I could give zero stars I would! The staff is horribly rude, the hover constantly and the owner is terrible as well. Asked them to pay $20 cash and 33 cents on card and she refused telling me that I need to pay all on card started screaming at me and swearing say I had the $ in there.... More

Not a huge buffet but the choices they had were all very good. We were a group of 8 and everyone had good things to say. Only reason this isn't 4 stars is due to the small choice selection and dated interior.

My friend and I visited China Taste over the weekend. It was my recommendation based on a reasonably delicious buffet experience. Never again. We had to order off the menu. While my entrée was okay, my friend received an order of General Tso's made from old chicken that was disgusting. You could taste the stale quality and it was rubbery.... More

The food crab and chicken was too heavily breaded, servers were in a hurry, served meal without the rice. Food was bland.

This place is a staple and I return with family again and again. Well run clean space we often however take out from this location. Our favorites are the Kung Pao chicken, fried rice and Peking ravioli. We have never been disappointed here. Tasty food good prices always very nice staff.

I picked up food for dinner, and overall the food was less than average and it was expensive. To be fair there was one thing that was above average, the crab rangoons. The scallion pancakes, beef teriyaki, beef and broccoli were only okay. The orange chicken was terrible, the sauce tasted as it it had been burnt. The interior is... More

Went there for lunch with some friends and found the buffet to be very good. They keep the dishes full and hot.

All of the dishes were prepared very well and portions were generous. It's odd to find a Chinese restaurant that charges extra for a very small serving of white rice and dipping crisp noodles.
