Oriental buffets are very popular, and Dragon Buffet in Spanaway is a good example of the best. Started by a group of friends in December of 2010, the Dragon Buffet is clean, bright, and the service is friendly and informative. They offer both an all you can eat buffet, with sushi, a grill, and a full table service menu, with prices ranging from $2.00 for a cup of soup to $9.85 for a combination plate. The restaurant is very large and can accommodate groups of any size with reservations requested for large groups. There is plenty of parking and it has plenty of space between serving stations for walkers or wheelchairs. The bathroom is large and has an accessible stall.

We went during lunch, and had 2 buffets at $7.49 each, with a soda at $1.59, and a pot of tea, 99 cents,  I also ordered the General Tso’s Chicken lunch special at $6.95. We tried a wide variety of the oriental and American choices,, including a California roll from their sushi table where each type is wrapped in plastic wrap as it arrived from the kitchen to keep it clean, The General”s chicken had generous portion of chicken, with fried rice, just spicy enough to leave a bite on the tongue.  I found the food generally tasty, with good textures and flavors that were distinctive, although I make it a practice to keep my eye on servers to get food when it first arrives from the kitchen when it is really hot. I especially liked the dim sum with pork which was mildly seasoned but very enjoyable. I tried the salad bar which was fresh with a good variety of salad makings, and dessert section with fresh pastries.

We had a very enjoyable lunch, and if you are in the area, give the Dragon Buffet a try for good food at reasonable prices.
