Will come back

We went there not knowing what to expect. Food was good and price was good. You won't find this in another buffet. Yes there are not as many choices but common is good the variety they have for the price. We will come back anytime from Toronto. And no waiting always had my refil there.

Amazing

Every time that I go here, everyone is very happy and joke around. The food is always delicious, I have never had a problem with inconsistency. I recommend if you are very hungry and want delicious food!

Emerald was no jewel

I was not impressed by the quality of the food. Some items were fine, but as other reviewers have stated -- soggy or dried out -- not fresh. I was there about 5:30pm. I have been to much better buffets and I will avoid this place in future.

Disgusting

We had the buffet lunch. It was awful. Variety was not good. The food was only warm. The deep fried stuff was chewy and greasy. The soups were watery and flavorless. The place is hideous looking. Could use some fresh paint etc. NOT that clean. I would not go if it was free!

The value and service is excellent

I didn't see any recent reviews so I figured I might as well let people know that this restaurant is an excellent choice that should not be overlooked! Their new location is large, very clean and bright. The food is great with tons of choice. Their soup is the best! The new staff has settled in and are very friendly and attentive. The value just can't be beat - consider this... next door Wendy's has salads for $8.49. At China Emerald, you can have buffet lunch for $7.49, which includes a full salad bar, plus chicken to put on your salad, plus anything else of 100+ items... I eat here with my friends, family and business associates all the time and have absolutely no reservations about recommending it others.

I agree with the other guy. This restaurant was not very good. The servers are hard to understand and when i ordered my drink, took over 15 minutes for a glass of coke.

Not so hot

The buffet food was cold and not a whole lot of variety. Service staff very friendly but on a whole not so much to do. I won't be back

hit or miss

It's hit or miss. The deep fried stuff is always good, but the chicken chow mein is getting really garlic-y, with too many slices of almost raw garlic in it. And it's bland. The fried rice is pretty okay.

Good Chinese

The food is surprisingly good. We've only had take out, mind you, so I have no clue how clean the restaurant is, or how the service is outside of their phone manners. But the food is fine. Not outstanding, but better than a lot of Chinese we've had lately.

Well. I'm a big fan of Chinese cuisine. And we haven't been here in a year. It was our friend's birthday and we brought him here to try it. My wife's migraine started after eating the broccolis because she has severe reactions to MSG. (No MSG my butt) and the food was like rubber. There was a weird smell around the buffet tables. The walls were dirty. And since when is mini-pizzas a good idea for a buffet item? You might as well have put out hot dogs! I'll never come back. Whenever someone asks about it I tell them to stay away.

The food is excellent especially if you get there around 5:00 after everything is out and fresh. I have no idea what these others are talking about as overall this is a great Buffet restaurant.

Even after reading reviews on this site we still decided to try this restaurant. The choices in food were very limited and most were soggy or stiff with age. The vegatables were kept crispy with MSG. The glasses that were used for water looked dirty. The entire atmosphere was unfortunately dirty, unkempt and downright disturbing. On the good note the 10.99 for the meal was a cheap ticket out of this horrible experience. Our server was a sweet woman and obviously tried very hard to make our time there as pleasant as humanly possible. We learned our lesson. EAT ELSEWHERE!!!
