The quality of the food is okay but not the greatest. Wide selection of foods, from Japanese, Chinese and Korean cuisines. The prices are reasonable.

Buffet City is no longer in business. I went there today (November 8, 2008) and the doors are locked, the furniture inside is gone, and there is a "For Lease" sign in the window.

I went on a Friday night for the seafood buffet dinner, and there's a reason the place was empty. The food was horrible. The sushi was not fresh and of the 4 rolls they had, 3 of them were variations of a CA roll. They did have a lot of seafood - crab legs, squid, oysters, salmon, but I didn't think anything was good - not fresh, a lot of oil, overcooked. I was really disappointed. Plus, the service was poor and the hostess and manager were extremely rude. Save your money - there are so many other great places to eat on the Westside.

Pros: free parking

Cons: bad food, not worth it

this is a great place to go if you like all you can eat buffets. It offers a huge variety of dishes of both Chinese and Japanese food. They also offer sushi and sushi rolls. The have parking underground and are open all day. The prices are very reasonable and the service is good. It can get busy but you are always seated quickly. It is also a good place to go if you are part of a large group.

Ok, so, one way to see if glittering, surreally positive reviews are legit is to see if those folks have only posted once. If so, it's a good bet that it's a fake profile set up. Don't let the good (fake) reviews below fool you.

This USED to a great Chinese place in the area. Not only did they offer a buffet, they also had an a-la-carte menu for take-out/delivery that provided a tasty alternative (We always opted for a-la-carte over the menu because that way we knew we were getting fresh dishes...the one time we tried the buffet, much of the food had clearly been sitting out for way too long and was rubbery/congealed + too greasy). Been ordering/going there since summer '04 -- three and half years.

Unfortunately, as of a few months ago they got a new manager who has, sadly, ruined the place. GONE is our friendly neighborhood favorite hangout. It's been replaced by a new, shockingly rude manager that has eliminated the a-la-carte menu and enforced a buffet-only policy. When we asked what had happened to the a-la-carte menu (and could we order off of it anyway, perhaps?), we were given such a shockingly rude response that I don't think I can write it here in Citysearch!!! The funny thing is, we actually might have stayed to eat at the buffet had the manager not been so rude and lacking in basic customer service skills. What a shame!

Pros: Under the old management, this was a great little place

Cons: Manager told us off when we asked if we could order a-la-carte (the way we used to for over three years)

Cons: you definetly will overeat unless you know how to control yourself which is hard.

They used to have really good food. Now this place is just disgusting, dirty, and not fresh at all. Go anywhere else but here. Even Panda Express is a million times better and fresher.

Went to Buffet City for the first time yesterday per friends and students' recommendation. Loved it. Clean, smiling waiters, a great variety of food (mostly Chinese) and desserts.

Cuz your jeans are gonna feel mighty tight. I'm a big fan of kitchen sink Chinese buffets and this is one of the best I've tried. The sushi is surprisingly fresh, and the korean style spare ribs are nice and juicy. Some of the seafood dishes didn't look particularly appealing but that's to be expected. Also, there ain't much here for vegetarians, but who cares right? Come hungry, leave happy.

Cons: My stomach hurts

Loved the food, and surprised at that. The place is spotless and the service is instant. First and only all you can eat buffet with great food (outside of hotels) that I have ever encountered. $8 lunch that I can't match anywhere in the area so far and I eat out every meal. The baked white fish was excellent. Nightly dinner for $13 includes lobster!

Pros: Spotless, Delicious, Cheap

Cons: Strip mall

.

Excellent place to find anything you're after (sushi, pizza, etc.). You can find anything that you're after for an amazingly affordable price (lunch is 7.99 before 3:30ish - to beat the 4pm cutoff). Try it, it's guaranteed good eating.

PROS: Lunch Buffet Cost (7.99)
CONS: Dinner Buffet Cost (14.99)
