Food was not good and they didn't have a big selection. They seem to go downhill every year. This will be the last year we go.

Nothing too fancy. Just a regular Chinese Buffet place that has quite a few options. I think they had over 20 or 25 options on the buffet. You'd think they could do a bit to spruce up the ambience a bit.

We ordered takeout from here a couple of weeks ago. It just wasn't good. My husband ordered chicken chow mein and I ordered beef with broccoli. It was almost inedible. The egg rolls were good though. Won't be coming back here.

We got there about 15 minutes after opening at 11 AM and thought that the food might be fresh and hot..........NOT! Although I had a few items that had a good flavor, most were not even lukewarm. The price is right but the food often...More

Last day in OBX and my wife and I were in the mood for some Chinese. The GPS had us going to Kill Devil Hills to eat when I saw New China and decided to stop there. Well that was the biggest mistake we could...More
