Dragon Gourmet Buffet (Plantation)

Posted on February 9th, 2011 · Buffet Chinese Japanese Plantation

***** Dragon Gourmet Buffet, 1091 South University Drive, Plantation, Florida 33324, (954) 423-8088.

The “name” may throw you off…the words “Chinese”–“Japanese”–“Asian”–“Fusion” are nowhere to be found. So there is no confusion, Dragon Gourmet is a Chinese-Japanese-Asian-Fusion buffet-joint in Plantation.

This one is a KEEPER. Clean…good food…huge and I do mean HUGE selection of stuff (didn’t count– its website says that there are 200 different items)…very reasonable prices, figure max 16 bucks a head (it all depends when you get there). You can check menu/prices/photos at www.dragongourmetbuffet.com.

Over the past few months, I’ve done 1-dinner and 2-lunches…the food was consistently good. On all of the “outings”…Dragon was busy and the food was constantly turned-over, which is IMPORTANT when you are talking buffet. Just think of what freshly made fried chicken tastes like after its sat in a heated steamed “chafing” dish for 45 minutes or so (but that”s a Golden Corral story for a whole-nother day).

To be perfectly honest with you, Jeff Eats is a big-fan of buffets. Can’t remember, the last one that I didn’t enjoy. May need a psychiatrist to figure this one out, but just looking at mounds and mounds of food just-sitting-there-for-the-taking, gets me going.

If you are a fan of Chinese-Japanese buffets, I think that you will really like this one. Special shout-out to the General Tso’s chicken, pan fried dumplings, egg rolls, sweet and sour chicken.

Dragon is open Monday-Thursday 11am-10pm, Friday-Saturday 11am-11pm, Sunday 11am-9:30pm.

    Just read your reviews on Dragon Gourmet Buffet, had lunch last week, it’s the best Asian buffet I’ve been in so far. Also read good online reviews in the past.

    Is there a similar buffet in Miami?

    Really appreciate a response.

    Just had a chance to read your post.

    Try Shinju Japanese Buffet in Miami…reviewed on April 24, 2011.

    The joint has both Chinese and Japanese food.

    Thanks for reading…

    They had a very nice Chinese buffet with a great selection of food. I enjoyed my meal. By Gregg L. Friedman MD, Psychiatrist, Hallandale Beach, FL

    This is an A1 buffet. I have eaten there about 7 times. Each time at lunch they had delicious spareribs. Most Chinese buffets serve this only at dinner. Everything is high quality and often replenished, not left to steam to death.

    In Coral Springs the East Fusion buffet is just as good. Koizumi Japanese buffet at 5200 N. University Drive Launderhill is high level sushi etc.

    Well that’s my buffet roundup.

    We have taken our students for lunch on two occasions and it was great both times

    the two times lunch I mentined prior to this comment was for the SINHU Japanese restaurant in Davie. Personally, went to the one in Coral springs during the holiday and food was good but atmosphere was congested – it is a smaller older restaurant the one in Davie is super
