Not too bad
We went to North china buffet last night, it was too late and they were trying to close; however, they still ask us if we want to come in. they add alots of fresh food and give nice service for us, the price was so cheap, we 7people only paid around $120 with all pop around, the young manager was such nice guy. i recommend people go there.

Unfortunate
I do not enjoy writing poor reviews, but i will say I am brutally disappointed, all the food was room temperature, fatty, bland and overall rather disgusting. I was not expecting a fine dining experience but I do expect a decent experience. The "salad" bar consisted of a bowl of romaine lettuce, cut up celery, carrots and cukes. Even the kids who prefer bland food left hungry. I already knew You get what you pay for.....needed a reminder I guess.

Pitiful
I agree; worst tasting chinese I have ever tasted. Couldn't recognize my favourite dishes. Bland & half of them cold. At least they had Stoney Creek ice cream

Basic inexpensive food, soup, lettuce salad with a few toppings, asst dessert squares and ice cream. All you can eat, large selection. All the same inexpensive decor as other buffet restaurants of this type in Niagara Falls, Welland or St Catharines. Inexpensive is the best way to describe it. Young children who like plain food will love it.

I'm so sorry...I usually enjoy all types of Chinese food, but, this was not in the least bit worth it. I loaded up my plate with my usual favorites and was disappointed with almost everything on the plate. Starting with the Won-Ton soup (usually one of my favourites) as soon as I bit into one of the won-tons I immediately tastes something "off". Next on to the main courses..everything from the Kung Pow chicken to the lemon chicken to the mushrooms and green beans all tasted like the sauces were not right. The fruit available was orange segments and underripe honeydew melon...not exactly a large selection. I did enjoy the desert pastries. kudos to the baker.

I don't know what the other guys on here are talking about. But I came with my daughter who is 4 year old and she had the buffet, eating mostly ice cream, cake, and some jello. They only charged her $1.99 and i thought it was very cheap. Compared to going to McDonald's, i woulda had to spend A LOT MORE. My Dinner was $10.99. Their skewered chicken was the best i thought. So the 2 of us had a bill come to less than $15 total. For dinner with my kid, and all you can eat, that's just too good for a deal! also tried their take out the other day, it was really good and the portions were very large.

Visited this restaurant for the first time last week, it was very good. The Food choices are great. For $6.99 i had over 125 items. there was salad, dessert, fruit (including water melon, my favorite), a ton of hot stuff too. they had crispy chicken wings, which by itself would cost me more than what i paid at any other place. also had cookies n cream ice cream, which i really liked. I highly recommend this restaurant. it's very cheap and has lots of stuff to eat. If you're looking for 5 star dining, this is not for you. But if you're average guy like me, it's a wonderful place for my budget. service was very fast and the girls that work there were friendly. I really enjoyed eating there. Since then, i've been back for their dinner buffet as well, and they even had sushi and shrimp.

Worst Service Ever
Waiters are rude and lazy, manager no help either. Food is mediocre at best. Beware, they will charge a regular child’s portion for 2 year olds. Stay well clear of the North China Buffet.

Horrible food
We've tried this place twice - to give them the benefit of the doubt - but the food is awful, tasteless, inconsistently heated - just bad all around. Mind you, all Chinese buffets are awful - but this is the worst of the worst.

I dont know what the other reviewers on this site is talking about. But what are you expecting with $6 buffet? they have like 125 items with so many hot food, salad, soup, ice cream, cakes, bbq , sushi, its just insane to think thats not an AMAZING DEAL!!! Trust me on this one folks, you cant possibly go wrong here. I always shop at the walmart and then drop in for the lunch buffet. its simply the best deal in niagara region. for those of you who gave this under a 5 rating, i want to see what your 10 rating restaurant is. Because this is simply the best place i've found for years.

I've had their dinner buffet and take-out over 15 times since they opened. It's really good food and the portions are large. They also give really nice microwaveable containers with their take-out stuff. Im very satisfied with their cuisine and highly recommend this place to anyone looking for casual family dining in the region.

Dinner was very good. The wine list included regional selections which impressed me the most. Had a great time and will defintely go back again. The best item on the buffet is their skewered chicken which is BBQ'd with a curry flavor.

There isn't a huge assortment to choose from, but what was being served was decent. I really enjoyed the honey garlic ribs, the egg rolls are tasty too! The dessert selection left a lot to be desired though, selection and quality wise - we found it a bit on the stale side. Overall, you get a lot of food for what they charge! For anyone on a budget, I would recommend it!
