So when I lived here years ago I went to chens bistro in the university area every Sunday but that is now closed. What are some other options for good Chinese buffets in Charlotte? Thanks!

Lotus Buffet on Rt 29, near the mini-golf (Wing Zone, McAllisters use to be there, there is a lot of vacant buildings in that strip. There use to be a few different restaurants by the Cook Out, but that's vacant now too) is pretty good. Haven't gone in years, but I hear a lot of people still go there. They have Alaskan King Crab Legs now.

I like Tin Tin off of Park Road, it's pricier than other Chinese buffets though.

Tin Tin. It's good people-watching too!

Personally I would avoid Tin Tin. My husband and I took our kids there and I found it to be disappointing. The dining areas were not very clean, e.g., cobwebs and dust on the lighting fixtures hanging over the table, sticky carpets and tables and slick marbled floors. The buffet was impressive to be sure but the majority of the clientele came to load up on all-you-can eat crab legs and shrimp. I didn't think it was too expensive ($70.00 including tip for 4 people). And chuckles34 is right, the people watching is phenomenal!

I think I've only been to 2 Chinese buffets in Charlotte. One was in University area near the Holiday Inn but didn't like it. I did like the one near Walmart on 74 in Indian Trail.

Haven't been in years but it was good when I went. Used to be a place downtown that was nice but they closed too. China Queen I think. (Ivey's building).

Not only is Tin Tin the best buffet, it's arguably the best chinese restaurant in Charlotte period.

Tin Tin is normally pretty good but pricy which I don't mind too much if the quality of the food justifies it.
But the last time I was there I was disappointed in that regard especially the crab legs.

Still, as far as Chinese buffets go it's the top of the heap in Charlotte.
