Located in the former home of Hometown Buffet on Florin Road, Yum Buffet and Grill serves up a variety of Chinese dishes in all-you-can-eat fashion. Since the restaurant was still fairly new, they were still offering a 10% off discount. There are definitely fewer items available compared to #1 buffet, but quality was barely decent overall. There is a nice grill area where you could gather various uncooked meats, veggies, and noodles to create a stir-fry on a flat top grill. There were also nice slices of steak that can be provided to the grill staff cooked to order, which was very nice. The steak was actually very tender and juicy. The grill staff was upbeat and willing to cook your dish the way you like it. The sushi looked disappointing to me, and none of the pieces tasted good. The other Chinese food items tasted OK for the most part, but most of the fried items were overly breaded. The steamed fish was a little tough, but the salmon was tender. Most of the food was fairly fresh and has not been sitting out too long. Staff continuously refill low items. Staff also constantly cleared our table of old plates. There were three different flavors of ice cream served in individual containers, but they lacked flavor and were very tiny. At the end of the meal, a server dropped off the check, and we provided payment. While still eating dessert, having signed the receipt, the server already proceeded to review our tip amount and take the check away. Overall, Yum Buffet and Grill serves up decent Chinese food with a cool grill, but the lack of options and uninviting server staff makes me want to avoid this place.
