This restaurant should be shutdown. Sanitary speaking fail on all categories I wonder why Niagara Falls govt. is not putting it's foot down to shut this plaCE. iT IS A VERY SHAMEFUL ON TOURISM. THE Worst restaurant I experienced.

I go to Niagara Falls many times for vacation and China Buffet has got to be the worst place I have ever eaten for food in my life. Had the dinner buffet, the food was cold and did not look warm enough to pass basic health inspections. I took one bite, spit out my food and me and my friend left money on the table and out the door we went. It wasn't worth arguing over a refund or discount. It was that bad. It was nice to see that Mandarin has opened in Niagara Falls. This should be able to finaly close down China Buffet for good. This place should be ashamed for serving food that I would not even feed a dog. I have never eaten there again and never plan to.

This is the wildest place in niagara falls. I don't even know how to describe it. Just don't go here, ever. The food tastes like pubic hair off of a donkey

The food was not good! I sometimes read about people complaining about some dishes being tasteless at Chinese restaurants...I only wish we were so lucky!! Anything deep fried tasted like old grease and any dish prepared fresh(?) had an awful stale taste. The place is dirty inside and out. The washrooms were disgusting...there was vomit in one of the urinals! It was around 8 PM when we got there and my 2 boys were very hungry so we did not leave right away...but hindsight being 20/20 I wish we had. Half way through our meal the kitchen and wait staff sat down at a nearby table for their supper and guess what...they were'nt eating the crap off the buffet like we were. Before heading out to this place we asked the front desk staff at our hotel if they could recomend a good Chinese restaurant. The clerk was not sure but said some other guests had been there the night before a said it was OK! I doubt we were only there on an off night.

I'm a local who goes to this place now and then and the wait staff are very nice to deal with they don't bug you over and over they do chat a bit fill up your glass with water take away your used plates all and all its a very friendy place and clean too!

Lousy food . Overpriced . Place has been shut down 2 or 3 times by the health department . Do not reccommed it to anyone.

worst buffet i have ever eaten.this restaurant received a $25,000 fine for kitchen violations from the health department.dinner buffet costs $6 dollars.what kind of food can you expect for that price.i should have known better.

Bad to inedible and possibly even dangerous food, given the obviously less than 140 degree temperature of what was in the buffet serving trays. Filthy dishes provided for use. Sour milk for coffee. Complaints rejected by staff - refused refund or price reduction. Will be reporting to heath department. Worst restaurant I have visited in many years.

Worse customer service I have ever experienced!  And you can't even phone to complain, because nobody speaks or understands English!  And that is not a racial slur; it's the simple truth.
We ordered for delivery, waited more than an hour for our 45-minute promised meal, only to phone to find out it was "on the way, on the way".  Then, 5 minutes later the front desk calls up to say they were just leaving Niagara Falls (for delivery in Niagara-on-the-Lake)after calling to again verify the address.
All this lowsy service, and too late to cancel as my credit card has already been charged, or I would have cancelled the first time I phoned.

What's wrong with all you people? This is a great restaurant. I live in Niagara Falls, have been to all of the Chinese Buffets, and this is the best one. I won't name names, and I don't have to because this buffet beats them all, and for a better price. They have great food, a squid soup, which I haven't seen anywhere, and more selection than other buffets here. I can't complain about the service. I didn't have any stupid self created problems while dining there, and so I have nothing to complain about.

MY PARTNER CUT HIS TOUNGE & MOUTH ON A PIECE OF METAL FR A CAN. HE WAS BLEEDING ALL OVER HIS FOOD. THE WAITRESS MADE NO FUSS AND CONTINUED SERVING OTHERS. WE ONLY GOT ONE MEAL PAID FOR. WORST AND MOST DISGUSTING PLACE EVER!!!! NEEDS TO HAVE A HEATH AND SAFETY CHECK. DO NOT GO THERE!!!

I have eaten at China Buffet regularly for the past four years, and I have never had a bad experience. The worst thing that occasionally happens is that the chicken wings aren't hot, but I am very picky about having deep-fried food hot out of the fryer. 
The staff have never been anything but polite and prompt and friendly to me ... maybe some of those complaining should keep in mind that in food service, you get back what you put out. In other words, get prissy and demanding, and you'll get ignored.
The restaurant has always been clean when I have been there. Bathrooms may occasionally get dirty during busy times, but I find that people who are the pickiest about "cleanliness" in public bathrooms are those most reluctant to pick up after themselves when they make a mess. Those of you who pi** on toilet seats know who you are.

We arrived to find most food either cold (suspicious tasting as well) or just flat out "reheated" ...TOTAL RIP -OFF for the money

Most people who review stuff are just stupid I think...come on it's a buffet..what do you expect for the 10 bucks you paid???? i life you get what you pay for...and this is no excpetion...think about it...a Licks burger, fries and a drink cost $10...if you go to McDonalds it's $5 there is a reason for that cause your not eating real fries...the meat you eating is the same grade of the meat they sell at taco bell Grade D...so you get what you pay for....look at the new Casino buffet...it;s nice clean but the food is still boring...it's okay but the value is unbeatable...but again Wolfgang puck is the place to go....most expensive dish is $18 but the menu is kinda small...but that's why I love Pickle barrel...to bad NF doesn't have one.

Good restaurant , reasonable price and good service . Don't know what's all the complaint about ? We enjoyed our meals there. It's clean and well above our expectations.


As chinese food buffet lovers, my husband and I were so looking forward to having a really nice dinner only to end up feeling sick and disappointed after finding the "China Buffet". When I first went in I used the washroom and as soon as I opened the door something didn't seem right, the garbage pail was overflowing onto the floor and it looked dirty. When I went to wash my hands the tap broke off and I couldn't get it back on. Then there was the food, if you could call it food. It was disgusting. Most of it didn't look bad until you tasted it. I decided to try some of the breaded shrimp . When I bit into one i found the shrimp wasn't shelled underneath the breading. I check the next 3-4 and they were all the same. (Gross!) There wasn't one item in their buffet that was edible. I was starving and ended up eating a few grapes because that was the only thing they couldn't have ruined. There was something at the end of the buffet that looked really gross and resembled "barf" - when I read the label over it they called it "Dim Sum". I've never had "Dim Sum" before but I would bet it's not supposed to look like that. Anyhow, we ended up at Tim Hortens afterwards trying to get the taste out of our mouths. That place is a great candidate for "Kitchen Nightmares" - Chef Ramsay really needs to get ahold of it and turn it right around!

My friend and I ate at china buffet on Tuesday June 8th 2010 it was the worst Chinese food ever it tasted old,cold we were the only ones in there now I know why the place was dirty this place should be closed down

Absolutely TERRIBLE!!!! Do yourself a favour and don't even go near it. The food was old,cold,alot of stuff we didn't even try for fear of getting sick! And the filth....don't even get me started!! It was disgusting to sat the least! I really don't know how they haven't been shut down. We complained about the food and they didn't care, they gave us a whopping 5% back...I even told them I was going to Mc Donald's because I was starving since I couldn't eat their food....NO ONE CARED!!

This is the worst place by far. I wouldn't even let my dog eat there. No wonder they got fined. The first impression was the outside. It looks like it has not been cleaned since it's been there. Then you go in the inside and it is okay looking. But the kids couldn't even play the claw machine out the front without the waitress hurrying you to come in. The food was the worst I have ever tasted. I would rather eat at McDonald's then this place. Everything was colder then it was outside and the ketchup was way overdue. We had to tell the waitress to throw it out. No wonder there was only us and two other people there. If you want hot, good food-DO NOT COME HERE!!  I would rather go hungry for a day then eat here.

This has to be the worst resturant in the world the food is gross, cold ,old and even the kids wouldn't eat it and they eat anything good to know that someone reported them theres a place that should just close there doors!!!!!

This is the worst place by far. It was the worts buffet I've had out of two countries. I wish I had seen this site before I went to Canada.

Last time I was there was in Jan of 2005 before new owners took over that place a few weeks of me eating there! Last time I wrote good food and nice staff but this time around the new owers are dirty and the new staff are not to brite. Service? What a joke order drinks and never get them untill they give you the bill?!Its like they just got off the boat?! Tip to the wait stuff when one comes in say hello and how many people in the party and then seat them down and ask what drinks would the guest like to order and then bring the drinks right AWAY not with the "bill"!!! PS: The washrooms are more dirty then before!!!! I gather this is one reason they get fined 25 G's from the heath Deptment? STAY AWAY!!!!!

Okey to the Local who keeps poting the comments what a great place. It's very clear your work there. This place is very dirty. Do you think the Health Department fined them because (A) Just somebody to pick on or (B) This place is DIRTY and GROSS!!

Thank God it was cheap, even tho if it cost one penny that would be too much. Really I'd never eat there again even if it was free and I was starving. Worst Chinese buffet we've ever been to. We went to the lunch buffet, very bland, all chicken dishes basically and some of it didn't seem to be cooked all the way, we actually spit it back out. We had a few bites of other things, paid our bill and stopped somewhere else to eat. We didn't use the restrooms, the place seemed ok as far as cleanliness,but we really didn't look that hard, the staff was ok too. #1 importance is good food, which we did not find any there.

We had been there many many times and been very satisfied ...BUT THIS TIME
WE arrived for my birthday celebration (daughter, her boyfriend and myself) ...we found some of the buffet items cold...when we complained the waiter never went near the kitchen...transmitting his thoughts by telepathy n'est pas?
Our complaints fell on deaf ears!
Told them we were loyal customers in the past and would never be back!
They couldn't care less!
