Whenever I return to Vermont (my childhood home), I always visit my autistic son Steven, and we invariably end up at least once at China Moon. We have been doing this since the place was called China Moon and before, and the food is always hot, well-presented, and fairly tasty. It is a typical buffet in most respects, meaning that... More

Felt watched by the waitresses, as soon as we were done our plate, they were right there to take it off our table. Not a comfortable feeling. Food was ok.

Somewhat dissapointed. We went an hr and a half before they closed, so I understand that the quantity of food would be less, because they close soon, however, quality wasnt all that good. I generally dont give bad reviews, but we ended up paying 16$/ person, and there was no seafood, no sushi, no hibachi.. Generally, i would pay between... More

This is a second review in a year and I am doing so because in our last visit, there were some stand-out dishes offered. The first was new to me: Black Pepper Shrimp. These were large succulent shrimp in a black pepper sauce that was terrific. The bbq pork was also very tasty, cooked to tender stage and basted with... More

I am amazed that this place has gotten good reviews. Went there today and the food on the buffet was cold, the rice and noodles were mushy, and the egg rolls had no flavor. The dessert table all had pastries that were just stuffed with cool whip. Never, ever going here again.

I'm concerned about the fact that I've seen customers return to the buffet line with a dirty plate to be refilled. THIS IS DISGUSTING. I don't know why the sanitation officials don't at least require the restaurant to post signs forbidding the reuse of plates. I enjoy Gen. Tao chicken and their hot and sour soup. They also have steamed... More

Very nice wait staff! Good food! Very good location with plenty of parking. Would like to see a few more choices on the buffet, but what is there tastes good!

My boyfriend loves Chinese food so we tried this restaurant, and will mostly be written from his opinion (as I'm not a Chinese Connoisseur). Positive attributes: Won-Ton soup, fried fish, orange chicken, and warm tea. Atmospherically, the decorations are lovely with crystal and green beading shimmering down from the ceiling. On the negative side: Most of the food seemed to... More

My granddaughter and I stopped in here for supper late one evening. The choices were all pretty standard and even though late, the food quality was good and stuff was pretty fresh. As has become the norm at many of these buffets, there were many more chicken dishes than other meats, but all tasted pretty good. Soup was hot and... More
