Last time my family visited here we had several problems. 1. Many of the items on the buffet were empty. 2. Many of the food choices were old and had been setting out for a while. 3. Some of the items had way to much salt like the other reviewers mentioned. 4. A lack of items for kids and people... More

I will never eat at Lin's again after seeing their health inspections. This restaurant consistently earns an average of 11-12 CRITICAL violations PER inspection. It's a matter of public record...check for yourself. Lubbock has much better options available for Chinese food.

The food was pretty good and they definitely have a lot of variety which is nice. It didn't look very nice inside though. It wasn't necessarily dirty, it just looked old and not well kept.

Absolutely huge buffet. Getting fresh food depends on how busy they are and what time you get there. The entryway makes you think it's nicer than it is. The staff is sub par. Typical Chinese buffet

The food tastes all right, but it could be warmer. The Health Inspectors agree ... they have been a consistent low performer.

The food selection was huge. I did not get to sample everything, but the few that I chose to was tasty. Some dishes are better than others. For example, the fried rice noodle stick was mediocre. The ones that I enjoyed were gung pao chicken and sauteed beef. The sushi was surprisingly quite good, since I usually avoid sushi at... More

We couldn't believe how big this buffet was. There were four long steam tables filled with food, and plenty of room around them to maneuver. They have all the usual entrees that one would expect at an Asian buffet, like Kung Pao chicken, sauteed green beans, beef with broccoli, but they also have lots of fresh fruit--pineapple, watermelon, oranges, canteloupe,...

This place is awesome. I've been there twice over the past 2 years and I like it. Fresh sushi, good chinese food, and a serve yourself ice cream bar. What else could you ask for.

The newest out of all the buffets in town. Have the best location, and the biggest space, but why is the food quality so poor..China star and even Hongkong is better, and both have been around for ages. Alll the food have the same basic 3 or 4 kind of sauces...the sushi was old, food was never refilled fast enough,... More
