The food was really good just hate I couldn't eat more! The food was hot and the service was great. The people's working there were always making sure the food was hot and the buffet was clean. You should eat here it was better than our buffets back home.

This place is excellent if you want a Chinese Buffet! This is the only restaurant we ate at twice during a week on the Grand Strand. The thing here is not that it was all we could eat...we didn't over eat...but the quality and selection were very good. We didn't go at dinner time, only lunch, so not sure but I'm betting dinner is even better. A local couple that rolled in on bicylcles told us it is one of their favorites...but they said be careful they don't charge you for crab legs at dinner time...you only pay for those ($9 extra) if you eat them. While the waitresses were not overly friendly, they did their jobs very quickly and effeciently. The tables and floor were clean and the buffet tables were all kept hot and clean. Most important is that the bathroom was clean...a dead giveaway for a crappy kitchen is a "crappy" bathroom! So, if you want a good quality lunch for a good price, I would recommend it.

Noise level was excellent at 5 pm, because there were only one other table when I arrived. Egg Foo Young was cold. Shrimp mei fun ran out and was not refilled. Salt & pepper shrimp barely warm. Have been there several times - will not return

We were there for lunch on July 4th 2010. The food was good and the service was OK but halfway through our meal a man came in off the street wearing no shirt and asked for take out. This gentleman had thick black curly hair all over his chest, belly, and back and he was sweaty to boot. Instead of offering to fill his take out box herself or advising him to put on a shirt the hostess simply handed him a styrofoam take out container and pointed him to the buffet! We watched in horror along with other patrons as he walked all around the food,reaching over trays of food with his exposed hairy under arms and belly. Needless to say we left without going back for food, fruit, or dessert, and will never go back to that restaurant again. The actions of that hostess put the health of all the other patrons in danger of all kinds of disease including staff germs which are spread by body hair. If the SC health department doesn't have rules against this sort of thing common sense should.

This place is heaven for vegetarians and vegans alike. Well worth the $6 just for the fruit, salads and noodles.

Ths is about as average as you get for a Chinese buffett. the food is ok, but not memorable. If you have a hungry family, this will feed them quick

Waited to be seated too long. When we finally got our drinks, they weren't what we asked for. When the server brought correct, he set them down a little too hard. The noodles in the soup were over cooked. The chicken was very dry. I'm pretty sure the pork in the pork fried rice was too close to expiring. Sorry, too many restaurants are here for anyone to have one thing out of place.

Great place for my vegetarian family and friends. My daughter is vegan and it is the one place where she can get plenty of fruits and rice noodles. Went there for lunch today, got it to-go so this plate will lasts me a couple of days. Love their freaky jewelry selection they've recently added.

I have been to China Buffet several times hoping the food would be better-it's not. In fact the last time I went, it was worst. I waited 25 minutes for the mongolian grill! the beef dishes especially, leaves a lot to be desired. The food just does not have great taste to it period. I'm still trying to find a good chinese place at the beach. None just seem to have quality food. In fact, most places that have all the pretty lights inside seem to have bad food..

Yum. This place is an amazing value. You can really choose what you like. They have the mongolian thing where you pick out your veggies, sauce, etc. Perfect for vegetarians or people like me who don't like msg. Everything is soooo good. Lots of fruits and vegetables and my family likes all the dishes. We go here a lot. #1 food..

If you want to eat good food for a low price this is the place to go. The food is excellent and the staff is very friendly even though most dont speak English. Which is good because I do not want Chinese food cooked by people who are not Chinese. I like the family atmosphere here.
