The Best Chinese Buffet In The San Gabriel Valley

Chandavkl | Apr 17, 2014 03:31 PM

Is now Kirin Buffet, which recently replaced Todai in the Santa Anita Mall in Arcadia. Nice selection of good quality entrees, cute little dim sum items (including a small cocktail bun), desserts include Hong Kong waffle puffs. But here's what seals it. While a number of SGV buffets cater to Chinese diners, all the others also have a significant number of non-Asian customers too, which reflects to some extent in the food offerings. In a packed dining room today at Kirin there were all of two non-Asian diners, both with Asian dining companions. Yeah, they do have kung pao chicken and garlic fries, but this is the best lineup I've seen at a Chinese buffet in L.A. outside of the fancy hotel buffets. Kirin's offerings are not as extensive as Moonstar in Daly City, but it's also cheaper--$12.95 for weekday lunch, $19.95 for dinner, higher on weekends.
