Buffets are always a fun little topic of discussion especially Chinese buffets. There’s so many options around town and one of them takes place at Lee’s Chinese Restaurant. It’s a restaurant we have reviewed in the past and enjoyed. Since we stopped by on the weekend, we weren’t able to take advantage of their weekday buffet. So we made a return visit.

The buffet runs from 11-2pm and cost $7.25 without a drink. The buffet line is certainly smaller and tries to focus on quality not quantity. I find it funny when I go to Chinese buffets and see pizza, roast beef and other non-mainstays. I get they are trying to reach a broad audience but seriously, just give me Chinese food. It’s like going to a Mexican restaurant and getting a 40-page menu.

Here’s a list of what you can find on the buffet line:

  • Sha Cha Pork
  • General Tso’s Chicken
  • Cashew Nut Chicken
  • Moo Goo Gai Pan
  • Sweet & Sour Chicken
  • Vegetable Lo Mein
  • Steamed Rice
  • Fried Rice
  • Crab Rangoon
  • Egg Roll
  • Mandu
  • Teriyaki Chicken
  • Hot & Sour Soup
  • Egg Drop Soup
  • Salad, Watermelon, & Dessert

It’s really simple and straightforward. I tried small portions of every single item available:

Everything on there was fresh as it had just come out of the kitchen. I arrived around 11:30am so there was a decent flow of traffic.

There probably wasn’t a single entree on there I disliked or felt meh about. I don’t mind hot soups in the heat of the summer so I had their hot & sour soup multiple times. Loved it!

Some of the items that did stick out to me were the teriyaki chicken, Sha Cha Pork and the cashew nut chicken. It wasn’t too salty or just doused in sauce. Every meal had a good balance. If you’re a fan of spicy foods, that’s probably one area where they struggled.

At $7.25, that’s about on par with what you’ll spend at most quick service Chinese restaurants. From a value perspective, it was great and beat out the competition.

On a recent visit, my family had some issues with service but I saw no problems this time around.

Compared to other Chinese buffets, I’d put this right up there with some of the better ones in town. The selection wasn’t vast but it was all quality, the interior was clean and the price was spot on. What more could you ask for?

Here’s the menu in case you’re interested.
