This was not our first time at China Rose and in the past we as a family have enjoyed our experience however this visit was different. The buffet was poorly stocked for the amount of customers and I would have expected that it would have been given that we were there at 7:00 PM on a Friday. The food that was on the buffet was room temperature at best and this did not appeal to any of the five members of my family that dinned that evening. Prior to this experience I would have and did recommend China Rose to people however after the last experience I do not think that I will in the future.

The service was amazing. Everyone was super friendly, our waters were always full, and empty plates were cleared promptly. The only thing I didn't really enjoy was that the salad bar as it was incredibly limited just to lettuce and dressing, and a few other mixed salads. There were no toppings like bacon bits, cheese, veggies, etc. Overall though really nice, clean place, and amazing people.

Booked a family dinner for Chinese New Year’s and the dragon dance on Saturday, February 17. The Chinese buffet, as usual, was great and the dragon dance was a lot of fun!

I was disappointed. The atmosphere and service were great, but the food was very average and tasted like it had been sitting out for quite a while (I was there at 7pm on a Friday). The selection was also more limited than I was expecting. It has all the basic fair, but nothing special. Overall, I felt like it was an entirely missable experience.

Five of us went for our annual Christmas Eve Chinese dinner. First time there. We decided to order from menu instead of buffet. Only one person thought food we good. I didn't even get what I ordered. Food came on a plate all thrown on like it had been dishedfrom the buffet. Appetizer came after dinner served. One had to wait about 25 minutes for food after everyone served. Two people took our order and got it screwed up. All in all very disappointing. Will not return

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 :)

Was in the City and dining with family. First visit in a few years. It was clean and comfortable and they gave us a private room which made for a nice quiet dinner buffet. Food was very good and service was perfect.

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.
