Hello All:

As a professional Caterer, I do agree I am hard on restaurants and expect nicely prepared food and good taste. But careless food handling temperatures is one thing I will not tolerate. After my husband got food poisoning last year from a famous fast food store hot food case, and spent 3 days in the hospital for serious food poisoning and nearly died, I am particularly careful and really do notice if hot foods are indeed hot and cold foods kept cold. And notice if restaurants are clean & servers wash their hands.
In my own personal opinion, I would not eat here again. I prefer to get Dim Sum from a restaurant that has high food turn over such as Good Fortune Chinese Restaurant in Gaithersburg, MD. and I only eat there during peak lunch periods.

PROS: Chinese in Germantown
CONS: Greasy assortment of buffet food a lot of fried items. Concern about food temps - especially during later lunch times.

Please rate this guide helpful if you liked it. Thanks :)

I have been to City Lite Buttfet many times, and I have enjoyed each visit. This is the best buffet that I have been to in the suburbs of Washington D.C. area. There is always great selection of traditional Chinese food and American food, and the food always has great taste and very fresh. However, the "Pho" noodle soup does not have much taste. I recommend this place highly.

I'm Chinese and I've obviously had alot of experience with Chinese restaurants. This is one of the most popular Chinese buffets in the Gaithersburg area. I've been here about 10 times. While you are there, try the Peking duck (you have to request it in the back.) The sushi isn't that great. Generally, the selection of the food is good (ranges from traditional Chinese to typical American-Chinese to American to Italian), it is not top-notch nor that fresh.

PROS: Selection, Peking duck
CONS: Lack of freshness, crowds sometimes

This buffet is worth visiting, especially during the lunch hours. Here you can eat a varity of food; from Chinese, to Japanese, to Itialian. Their Sushi and Pho is a must.
