We usually go to the "Mandarin" in Palm Harbor, however my husband & I Love it here better! The price is right and they always have warm butter for the crablegs! More to choose from also. Wonderful Place.
Have a BIG appetite when you go there!
Amazing food. Itty Bitty customer service skill.. I have been going to this buffet for years. I starting going when i was little with my mom and now I take my boyfriend and friends with me. It has always been my favorite place for chinese. Much better than ordering in, at least here if something isn't to your liking you can go back and get something else. The sushi is a little bland without ginger and wasabi but still ok as far as sushi goes. The food is ALMOST always fresh and warm. If a tray of something gets empty the staff is usually pretty quick to refill it. I highly recomend the fried dumplings and soy sauce. The only negative I can think of at the moment is the unfriendly staff. I understand they technically are not servers and therefor do not have to be quite as friendly as a server in a high class establishment would. They tend to act extremely put-off when you ask them for anything. I was there for lunch with my mother a week or so ago and we ordered hot tea. Seeing as two of us were sitting there you would think they would bring two cups for it. Did they? No, and when I asked them for a second one it took the girl 20 minutes to bring it around. Add the fact that at check out if you pay with debit they ASK you to leave a tip for your waiter. Ummm. NO. First off I have been in the food service industry for a while now and currently work as a server and bartender. You NEVER EVER ask for a tip. PLUS honestly? They make $7 an hour. They aren't living off tips and technically why should they get one? All they do is bring you your drink and clean off the tables. Which makes them not much more than bussers. Last time I checked bussers didnt get tips. Overall if you don't mind fending for yourself and aren't looking to strike up friendlyness with the server you will love your trip here. I know I do everytime. I walk out with a belly that makes me fell like santa.
wowhitme lies!! His/her post 7/21-08 is apparently done to diss a great buffet. I go there frequently and have never observed any of the nonsense that wowhitme falsely reports. The claim that the positive reviews were posted by the owner is stupid and outrageous. This place is very clean. The food is fresh and tasty.
The Oriental Super Buffet has won many awards and is rated the Best of the City (Clearwater) nearly every year. Such negative reviews and outright lies demean the value of this site.
BEST BUFFET AND GREAT PRICE. I went to the Oriental Super Buffet with my friends and the place was packed. The food is fresh and hot. The service is nice and fast.The place is very very clean. The price is amazing. I'll be proud to sent my friends and family there.It's a very satisfaction feeling.
BEWARE!!! WORST RESTAURANT EVER!!! RUDE DIRTY HOLE.
THE RECENT GREAT REVIEW WAS DONE BY THE RESTAURANTS OWNERS AFTER THIS "TRUE" REVIEW WAS DONE. SCAMMERS!!!this is the worst restaurant ever, i had many expieirnces there and none of them were any good. but this last sunday i had a couple things happen to me that i found unacceptable.
where do we start........
well the food was horrible and the dishes dirty. the tables were dirty as well as the seats.
and heres the best part.
the waiters were RUDE!!! it was dinner time and the crabs were out. they waiter provides only one crab cracker per table. so my friends and i had to share it. when i asked repeatetly for an extra one the waiters refused to give me one and walked away.
i was not provided with refills when my cup was empty.
when it came time for desert. i needed a clean spoon. well the waiter told me to use the same spoon that i used for my soup which was covered in food. so i took the spoon from a table that was not accupied next to me. the waiter came up to me and PULLED the clean spoon from my hand and THREW another spoon on my table.
i brought this to the young man at the front who claimed to be the manager and he didn not resolve the issue.
DO NOT COME HERE EVER!!!
Good Value. Good chinese food, hot and fresh, clean restaurant. Not very friendly servers but not rude either. I would recommend going again.
GOOD VARIETY, YUCKY DESSERTS. Good variety. Cakes all taste the same and very dry - ugh. Best 'dessert' was apple filled philo dough very syrupy which they put in the meat section (??)
great variety and value. good food sushi is bland if u dont put wasaba and ginger on it , after all it is mostly rice, chop stick are available if you want. endless food tastes and treats great price less than $10. why would u need credit card?? enjoy the food gets crowded with all the bargain hunters ,they are fun to watch.
Good Food for a Good Price. I had driven past here many times to always see a lot of people eating there. I finally decided to visit myself and check it out. I was rather impressed at the variety of food they had available compared to other local buffets. Some food is better than the other, but I am sure that we don't have the same tastes individually anyway! I mean, you can eat the shrimp non-stop and cover the price of the meal alone! The sushi is rather bland. But you definitely waddle away with a full belly. I will agree that they are not the friendliest establishment when it comes to "service with a smile" but since I'm getting my own food, I don't really care as long as my drink gets refilled.
My bad experience at the super buffet. I was @ SUper Buffet for lunch 2 weeks ago & when we went to pay the bill I had wanted it split 3 ways & when we did I said all I can pay is with visa & the manager says $10 min. There is NOWHERE in their establishment where that is posted @10 min.. I told him he was lucky i was with friends so we put all on one tab and when my one friend went to give me cash the manger said "you can pay tip with that" I told him to mind his own business about my money and they got their tip. They shouldn't have asked for a tip you never do in hospitality and I should have never gave them one. My advise good food bad work ethic and bad hospitality.
