THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED International House Grand Buffet Restaurant Review

: This isn't gourmet Chinese fare but it's surprisingly good for the money. You can take a whole box of goodies home for about $5---you pay by the weight. It's a little funny to see pizza next to chicken feet, but hey, whatever brings 'em in the door. The crab salad is very mayonnaise-y and made from surimi rather than real crab, but you'd almost assume so for the price---and it doesn't taste bad at all. Chinese barbecued pork is tasty enough and the chicken dishes work well. The calamari is surprisingly tender and sweet. There's salad and a dessert bar as well, a nod to Western dining habits. Beer and wine are served.
