China Rose Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
We had a group of 15, including a couple of children. China Rose gave us a private room, so was quiet and we were able to talk and visit. Kids were able to get up and move around, and they always enjoy the desserts offered. Buffet has lots of variety, something for everyone in our group, all MSG free.
Our family went to China Rose for my Mom's Birthday. She loves Chinese food but can be rather choosy. To my absolute delight and surprise, it was amazing! I would definitely go back there again. The staff was so wonderful! They even brought my Mom a piece of Birthday cake and decorated it for her too. It was extremely FUN!
We took my father in law there, he is here from out of town. Usually the food is great. It wasnt up to par as it usually is but it was still good. And we booked reservation online only to get there and still have to wait We were told they don't always see the reservation online right away. I Dont think you should offer the option if it doesnt work well. We waited about 10mins. However the servers were all friendly and polite and work quickly to get a table cleaned and ready for us. Definitely will be back again :)
My only complaint is the waitress wouldn't let us move to a
window table beside the booth outside the kitchen. No one
was sitting there. Our party was 6 people - it would have
been perfect and less busy than right outside the kitchen.
We were there for 2 hours and nobody sat at the table we
wanted. The place was half empty. Would suggest waitress
could have been more understanding and let us move.
Due to minimal Monday evening customer volume, the buffet items were suffering from standing too long. I am confident that the food would have been dramatically better had we arrived shortly after opening time.
I felt badly for the restaurant being impacted be the economy.
We have been eating at China Rose for about 25 years. Buffet well stocked and lots of variety. Staff very friendly and prompt with cleaning the table and keeping water glasses full and teapot refilled. Was Chinese New Years when we went so it was very busy. Had Dragon Dancers in the evening as they always do.
As usual China Rose did not disappoint us. The Food on the buffet was hot an plentiful with a great selection. The service was great! they filled my water glass everytime it was a about 1/4 full and had lots of people to help with removing plates and taking care of us.
The foods were ok but in most of their dishes they have 2 to 3 same ingredients. It was like they are trying to make their menu look more. Most of their food are oily. The desserts are terrible. The extra utensils on the center table were dirty and look old. The surroundings were outdated. They have some dirty paper light diffusers. Their staff are friendly and accomodating.
This was the worst Chinese buffet I have ever had. The local ratings gave the China Rose very high ratings and that's what drew us to choose this restaurant for dinner. The soups were awful. The entrees all had garlic and were mostly empty waiting to be refreshed. We left unfulfilled and disappointed. Find another Chinese restaurant.
