There are only two weeks to go before the New China Buffet finally opens for business, according to owner Zhou Xiang Ni.
Taking up residence in the former, long-unused JB's Restaurant building at the Highways 87-260 intersection, the New China Buffet was originally scheduled to open last month.
The delay was the result of personal matters, said Ni, whose family owns and operates three same-named, all-you-can-eat restaurants in the Valley.
The New China Buffet, can seat 120 patrons, and will offer a variety of 40 different kinds of foods, in addition to a salad bar.
Although prices have not yet been set, New China Buffets in the Valley charge $5.99 per person for lunch and $8.99 for dinner, which includes snowcrab legs.
Children under three years of age eat for free, while older kids are charged 50 cents per year up to age 12.
