First time at this China buffet near IUPUI. $7.95 all day on Sundays! It's China buffet guys, come on! (They do have a menu but I don't concern myself with such!) This one is kinda cozy, though I avoided the rush coming at about 7:30pm. I always love the broccoli beef while sharpening my chopsticks skills! I'll come back next time and hopefully get their salmon instead of the boney fish. (What kind of fish is that anyway?)

Ordered for delivery & arrived in timely manner. For the price was subpar at best. Apparently asking for "extra spicy & hot" means sweet & the shrimp in the dish ordered was not cleaned/deveined properly. They don't give refunds, but they did replace it with another item at equal price.

Terrible. I'm pretty low maintenance but this was not good. I did takeout. The cashew chicken was surprisingly tasteless and the cream cheese wontons had no cheese but instead a meat that actually tasted a bit "off." Bummer-I love a good dive but this wasn't worth even the cheap prices.

My review are for the buffet, take out n delivery. The buffet was great, there are around 28 to 30 different kind of dishes out in the bar, also desserts ice cream and fruits. For the price of 6.95 for lunch and 7.95 for dinner with drinks included was a great price for a fast food or a family gather. The place might not seem very new but food is great, during lunch hrs the place are pack with pple, food are fresh cause they make replacement fast once the items are out. If the food are cold they are willing to heat it up or make new foods out. Great service. Called in for a pick up was really fast, made fresh food in less than 5 mins. Delivery during lunch n dinner hrs takes 45 mins around, is takes pretty long wait but the food still fresh and hot because they don't make the food right when u call, they estimate the time when the delivery guy are back then they make the food so tat it will be fresh. At first I didn't kno why the food still hot n fresh when it takes like 50 mins to get to my place then the cashier told me tat, which is great.

My expectations were low when I walked in, but yeah there is nothing special about this place. None of the food is covered. Most of it wasn't even hot. Overall it's just kind of dirty and the food simply wasn't good. The cookies were hard and a fly was around it. I tried a bit of everything and wasn't impressed. I think if you get something that's made to order it would be hot and possibly a good meal. Probably wont ever be back.

This Chinese buffet is in our groups lunch rotation. The buffet is good, nothing exceptional but solid. The nice part is you can get eating right away and still make it back to work on time. The work hard to keep the buffet stocked and their system works great. One of our group favorites!

I've been to worse... but not many places this bad.You walk in and pay at the register. Then you shuffle over and pick through the 10 or 15 items on the lukewarm steam tables. Food is kinda sad and tired. Room and furniture is kinda sad and tired. Nothing about this place is appetizing.Probably not going back.

Yesterday I had the most undesirable Chinese food I've had in a while, at the buffet in this shack. You see, I have a few food sanctuaries that I usually stick to, including Sichuan, Golden Wok (East St), and Yen Ching (E Washington), but once in a while it's good to taste something in sharp contrast just so I am reminded how good my favorite places are. This place served that purpose. Most of the buffet items were tasteless, but to its credit, there were plenty of veggies (broccoli is in half of the dishes), and one of the pork dishes tasted good. The price point is OK (under $7 for lunch buffet), but I prefer a fresh & tasty take out at Food King (86th) for under $5.

My review is for delivery order.Totally an American taste Chinese Food !Seriously...But I didn't mean that its taste not good. Actually, its tasty (I mean the delivery food, not buffet. ) . Unlike other American style Chinese Food. They don't use too much sugar and oil for stir-fry.Love the Tofu w. Veg home style and Kung Pao Chicken here. They also served rice with every dish.Good for the lazy person who doesn't have time to cook but want enjoy chinese food at home. They use a short time for delivery.NIce attitude to customers.

Review for takeout only, not the buffet.Forgot to bring my lunch to work and needed something super quick. Had a craving for some MSG and my week's worth of sodium so I called BTCR for a take-out order. It was ready in less than 10 minutes, and wasn't just scooped up from the buffet because I had it special ordered. It hit the spot. Standard Chinese place. Greasy and yummy!

Delivered to Riley. Took about 45 mins on a Friday evening. General Tso's Chicken was good. Egg rolls were decent. I like lo mien, but it was not as good as I hoped. Overall decent food.

I don't get all the hate for this place. It's a Chinese buffet, people. It's called "Best Taste." What were you expecting? It's not gonna be PF frickin Chang's.The food is fresh, and they are quick to replenish it, which doesn't always happen at buffets. In terms of Chinese buffets, that deserves 4 stars in and of itself. And they allow you to take it to go if you don't want to eat in. Uhm, awesome? If you go after nine, a take out box is only $5 and if they are out of something on the buffet you want, they will bring out more for you. This place kind of rocks.

Do not order from this restaurant. I've tried two separate times at this place, and honestly, one time was enough. The first time I ordered online, they completely neglected to send me my food, saying that I hadn't ordered at all, even though I had an e-mail confirmation. The second time I ordered, they gave me the wrong food - someone else's order entirely. I went back simply because it's the only chinese delivery service in my area, and I won't be trying anymore. If you order here, just know that you're playing the odds; and so far, they've never been in my favor.

Food is very good but why do some of our orders go through when we place them online and sometimes they don't go through?? I say they need a better system if this is happening to customers regularly. Other than that we love their food!!
