Quick Fix At Good
Taste Chinese Buffet
By Luann, Diane & Jen / firstname.lastname@example.org
The Foodies this week ventured to the east end of Commack
in search of a quick bite and found themselves at Good Taste
Chinese Buffet in the Mayfair Shopping Center. Waiting for
us was an abundance of choices at an affordable price and
the chance to put our culinary creativity to use.
The setting is simple, but friendly, with a large open room
and plenty of seating with tables for parties of all sizes.
The buffet area is easily accessible and visible from all
tables. Boasting over 88 items daily, it features
a variety of appetizers, soups, entrees and side dishes. Theres
a salad bar with all the usuals as well as shellfish on ice
and a selection of sushi and sashimi pieces.
Three islands feature an array of Chinese dishes as well as
some American standards. Chicken and broccoli is a stand out,
with broccoli firmer and crunchier than you might find at
other buffets. Coconut chicken was also tasty, with a hint
of sweet flavor infused in all white meat. The General Tsos
chicken has a slight kick to it, and the pork and vegetables
a zesty spice. Salt and pepper shrimp are lightly battered
and cooked well, with the tails already peeled.
While the egg rolls, lo mein and fried rice are standard,
the dumplings are noteworthy. Pan fried dumplings are cooked
well and filled with zesty seasoned meatnot at all greasyand
the steamed dumplings with shrimp are soft and flavorful.
At the farthest island youll find snow crab legs and
a meat carving station.
Dessert spans a wide range of choices from cookies and cakes
to an assortment of jello and pudding flavors along with fruit
and ice cream. Even some traditional desserts land in the
Our drinks were refilled frequently and our dishes cleared
from the table before we returned from another trip to the
buffet. The buffet area is clean and the trays never run too
low on food and are always hot.
Lunch is priced at $6.95 for adults Monday through Thursday
and $7.45 Friday through Sunday; children eat for $2.95-5.25,
depending on their height. Dinner is $12.95 for adults Monday
through Thursday and $13.95 Friday through Sunday; children

Overall, basic dishes are tasty, the dumplings notable and
the service attentive. As far as buffets go, Good Taste does
it in just that waygood taste.
