The Panda Garden is very good. I drive a long ways to eat there.

I'm not a big fan of buffets. I prefer take-out because i can watch them cook it fresh.
If i'm going to eat something equivalent to american fast food from another country i atleast like it fresh.

It's not even really the chinese that cook it it's the Koreans here.

If i DO happen to eat at a "china" buffet i like king buffet.
I am curious about the new place though very much!
It looks nice.

I won't eat Panda Garden unless no one else will agree to go anywhere else because my ex got food poisoning from them and i'm just not willing to take the chance.

I do really like Goten here.
Real Sushi is delicious.=)

I had amazing real chinese food in China town. If you ever get the chance DO NOT pass it up!

I am excited to know details about the new place though and will give benefit of the doubt.

Not yet.

It seems like these Chinese places open up and at first the food is great and the place is clean. As time goes by they seem to end up going to hell.

King Buffet is a prime example of one that has went to hell.

hrm..was unaware of the king buffet thank you for telling me!

I've not been in a long while, but i do believe that yes alot of times they do go to hell after awhile.

I usually only eat the veggie noodles, but am glad that's it because i try to avoid places that get people sick!

obviously.=P

Check out the health scores for Panda Garden and King Buffet and you'll know why people get sick.

Tennessee only requires 2 health inspections per YEAR for all the restaurants which sucks.

They will only do a surprise check if someone gets ill and calls the Board of Health.

Our family went there yesterday, it was not that good. Our server was rude as hell, and she brought us the check too early. My sister even saw one of worker had her finger in the food.

I am in total agreement. The last time I ate there I got severely sick. That was in December of 2008. I will never go there again. Panda Garden is wonderful.
wow

My parents went in there[King Buffet] about a year ago.

They paid a lunch price and I guess the dinner price had started while they were eating.

My mom got shrimp and said that the waitress came up to their table and actually took her plate because she had a dinner priced item on her plate.

They haven't been back there since that happened.

if you notice the lowest of all rest. scores in Nashville, its Chinese.
The new Chinese in Cookeville is awesome and with 5 different bars of food. twice the size of Panda.
Kings is scary , I would never go back.

Had Mandarin today, I think I'll stick with Panda Garden. My only bad experience there was some kid putting his gum in the ice cream container, which was removed from the bar. I had King Buffet once, it was gross, overpriced, and I was sick for a week after. Screw that.

The people that own King Buffet had that nasty Chinese place across from the mall that was torn down.

Place was so nasty that it couldn't be sold, that's how gross they are.

There's a white passener van in back of King Buffet and that's how they haul all the illegals to work there.
