Evergreen Buffet

The Evergreen Buffet, located in the University Towne Center, is one of three Chinese buffets in Morgantown. It's probably the smallest one compared to Great Chinese Buffet, located at the old mall (which I haven't reviewed yet), and the No. 1 Super Buffet, which is the largest. It does have convenience on its side, though, as it's right in the middle of the shopping plaza.

The Evergreen Buffet is convenient, offers typical Chinese buffet fare, and has mediocre service. We walked in, ordered drinks and headed to the buffet. My water tasted terrible; not sure what the problem was here. I know what Morgantown water tastes like (still pretty awful), but this surpassed that level of "ick." But it's usually not busy, and there was only another couple or two when my friend and I were there. So, that's a plus.

There are only a few islands of items here, but they have the main items I look for: crab cheese rangoons, sweet and sour chicken, general tso's chicken, coconut shrimp, beef and broccoli, stuffed mushrooms. Nothing here was out of the ordinary, and nothing was entirely tasty. It was pretty average across the board.

They do have some sushi available, but there was no sushi chef on duty. Instead, a few rolls were placed behind a glass that you had to lift (which was broken). Some of the items ran out and weren't replaced during the time I was there, but for what I did eat, it wasn't bad. The crab rangoons have a good amount of filling, and I like the perfect amount of crunch. The general tso's has a good flavoring; quality of meal isn't ideal, though. Overall, not bad.
