Have to believe the negative folks weren't smart enough to realize they were reviewing the wrong restaurant. This one is in Cary. My brother started taking me around 1996 and it has been a delight every time! Great food and service!

Except for the over-the-top decor (e.g. 35 red lanterns, blue silk waiter-jackets) this restaurant was pleasingly Chinese. Big tables meant for ordering big communal dishes, waiters and hostess yelling orders in mandarin, no other white

For all of you rating this restaurant really low, you're on the wrong page for the wrong restaurant! The one you guys are referring to is located in Chapel Hill, this one is located in Cary, on the side of a bank. Ignore all the bad

This was the tenth or so time of eating at 35 Chinese. As an American, I have found that authentic Chinese food is not popular amongst my circle of friends. Tonight a few of my more adventurous friends came with me and had the Tai Ann

I think although the food was disgusting, oily, weak, and stale, this review can be summed up as follows: Black water (literally black filth) in foyer fish tank housing the "food" fish available for purchase. When a member of our party questioned the very dead former member of the tank floating by one of the "food" fish and remarked on it, he was told that it wasn't a big deal since "cooking kills everything" that might be affecting the live fish. Incomprehensible and disgusting! I was forced to pick a rating star above although they deserve less than none!

35 Chinese has a great variety on their buffet. Food is excellent and doesn't have that 'sat out all day' taste like a lot of other Chinese buffets.

I ordered take-out - three dishes.
My husband brought home two, so i called to enquire about the third which i was told i didnt actually order??

Asked to speak to manager and discovered why the regular staff have such an 'edge'. Her 'teflon' approach stuck at least. She trained them well!

The outcome: $35 for soggy 'crispy fish' and some insipid chicken dish.

We wont EVER return. Hope they have a strong following or i expect to see the place shuttered pretty soon.

I offer one star purely because i have to.

I liked this restaurant before and went there often. But after two very bad experiences, I totally gave it up. One time the waitress was very rude and food came up without well cooked and tasted very bad. Another time the female manager was extremely rude!!! I cannot believe how she could speak in that way, absolutely beyond my expectation. It seems this restaurant has earned a lot of money due to its good location (not to good food and service). It becomes disrespectful of each individual customer. It seems every customer owes something to them, and so it acts like a boss to every customer. I 120% dont recommend this restaurant if you want a basic respect as a customer.

I hadn't been to 35 Chinese in quite a while. In the past, the buffet was great. I was in the area last night and decided to eat there. Much to my dismay, the buffet was gone, but I figured that ordering from the menu should be OK since the food in the past was very good. Well, the teriyaki chicken appetizer was burnt and dry and had to be sent back. The main dish of shrimp and noodles was so greasy and funny tasting that it was inedible. Please note that I am not a picky eater, but this stuff was so bad that we left and went to Goodberry's to get the taste out of our mouths. Bottom line - eat somewhere else.

Cons: The food

On the one occasion that we visited this Chinese buffet, we were truly disappointed. There really wasn't much to choose from, and it was obvious that the food had been sitting out for a long time...the appearance of the food, it was not good. It was disappointing because we love Chinese buffets! Needless to say, we haven't been back there since. Sorry.

My original intention for eating in this restaurant was to have authentic Chinese food as claimed by several people including the waitress. Coming from big cities that truly serve authentic Chinese food such as LA, NY and Philly, I knew what I was expecting. However, some negative reviews of this restaurant cautioned me not to have high expectation?and thank goodness for those reviews because I was able to catch myself from the disappointing results. Not to drag this out farther, let me summarize the pros and cons after ordering 5 dishes ranging from soup to fresh steam fish.

Pros: Pleasant waitresses. However, only three waitresses for the entire restaurant. Those whose tables were somewhere in the corner, they might not received the necessary attention.

Pros: Hot spice flavored dishes. Some dishes claimed to have 35 spices/flavors. Unfortunately, there??s so much spices, you can??t literally taste anything. In fact,
an after-taste persisted from one dish that I couldn??t taste the rest of the dishes. They all tasted ??numbed?.

Cons: Can??t bring your own alcohol. Maybe it??s the ABC law in NC but I certainly didn??t have problem in other states. I decided to order Tsingtao (Chinese beer) but they were out. Can??t bring alcohol and they don??t have the most popular Chinese beer.

Cons: NOT AUTHENTIC. Green peas in your seafood dish is not a Chinese ingredient. Its American Chinese substitute.

Cons: Oil drenched dishes. Is that Chinese takeout food? Speaking of takeout, we got our food in minutes. I didn??t get to pour my Heineken before the dishes started to ??pour? on the table. Feels to me like a takeout/buffet restaurant than an authentic serving restaurant.

Pros/Cons: After eating oil drenched food, we manage to clear our digestive track overnight. Now I'm ready to try a different restaurant in my quest for authentic Chinese food in the Triangle.

My husband and I love this place so much we have been there 3 times in two weeks. We ordered on the authentic chinese menu and took two great recommendations from the nicest waiter! Beef with Green Onions (sounds simple and it is simply delicous!) and Szen. Spicy Fish! You must order from the real chinese menu and you will be amazed! The staff is friendly and go out of there way for you!!!! A must!

We were very disappointed that they no longer have the buffet. We received extremely poor service, and the food was less than enjoyable. As we looked around at the other tables we realized that if you are of Chinese descent, you were treated very differently. We have gone there for the last time, and cannot recommend it to anyone.

35 Chinese is THE BEST traditional chinese food in North Carolina, in my opinion. They used to have a buffet, and I'm not sure if they still have it...., but the stars on their menu are truly their authentic dishes, the buffet is just for people who don't know the secret. Just went I thought they couldn't get any better, they recently hired a new chef. The spicy Szechuan (I think I spelled that wrong) fish is the crispiest, tastiest dish I've ever had in my whole life....I dream about it a night. My husband and I can't wait to try the new dishes on the menu. Don't be afraid to try something new!

I went to cary 35 around 5 times.
The previous experiences are quite ok
Food taste is not as good as before. Previously I rank 35 as one of the best in NC but now it's below average

Service is bad..We waited for a long time for one dish and drink refill was slow. We asked at least three times before they refilled it for us.

Even worse, we paid 15% tips and still the waitress looked quite unhappy and grumbled something

Goodbye 35!

This restaurant is extremely dirty and smelly. There are flies flying around the food and landing on them (and we all know that they fly around Sh*t ). It is very not sanitary. I couldn't believe this! In the buffet steam table, one of their staff smashed a fly with a newspaper on one of the food tray, picked the fly off the beef dish, and threw it on the floor like no big deal. They did this several times! When i complained to the manager, they pretended not to understand. Also, we ordered from the menu and the food tasted a little spoil that night we ate there. After a few hours i was in the restroom all night. Service was terrible as well; can't get someone to come by the table. Later on that week i was told by a friend that her friends saw a rodent running across the dinning room. They were out of there in a heart beat. Definetely...we all don't think we will be returning to that restautant. REALLY DISGUSTING!!!

I had stopped in a few times with out-of-town friends because the buffet is plentiful, cheap, and 'good enough'. I was invited there for a dinner with a very large group of friends and one asian couple with us told us to avoid the buffet and hit the menu. They were right! The dishes were presented with flavorful sauces and I was totally shocked with my new appreciation for their food. So, send your kids to the buffet, but go for the menu!

We went there around 7:30 am. We were really hungry and we were expecting to eat a lot! but to my BIG surprise, it was the worst chinese food I've ever eaten in my life. Well, we stopped eating and left the place just after 3min otherwise we would end up going to an emergency room! I bet the food was sitting there atleast from the lunch time! everything tasted aweful! don even think about going there! BTW, we paid 20$ for nothing!
