DISGUSTING, Bad Service, Bad Food, Bad Attitude

GOOD FORTUNE BUFFET WAS CLOSED and through a miracle 


1030 58th St N  -  St PetersburgFL 33710  and
1035 62nd Ave -   St. Petersburg, Florida 33702

The origional good fortune was:  This place was so bad, I can’t write what I think of it, they’ll arrest me.  OK, it was a stone cold sh*t house.

The place, and especially the owner, the staff was disgusting, Bad food, bad management, bad staff, bad policy...  one of the worst places in St. Petersburg.


NEW VERSION:  Dirtiest, worst Chinese buffet ever opened is in round two...All food was overcooked and cold, never thrown out and we tried several dishes. Poor service, no refills on drinks. Overpriced ($28.87 for two adult buffets and watered down iced teas. 

It closed and was  “sold”   ( in the past this game goes usually to relatives) and reopened.  And is setting new records as disgusting  and they have a second location at 1035 62nd ave St Petersburg equally disgusting and terrible.
