Wiesbaden’s Chinakrone, or China Crown, isn’t worth the trip ... sorry.
Located halfway between Wiesbaden and Mainz, Chinakrone offers a typical all-you-can-eat Chinese food buffet, at a relatively inexpensive price.
Unfortunately, the food isn’t worth it.
Chinakrone is open seven days a week and depending on the day of the week you visit, the price of the buffet will cost between $8 and $17.
While this buffet offers the incentive of cheap and delicious sushi, the lack of variety in the rest of the lineup is the real upset.
You get your choices of white rice, fried rice, noodles or all of the above, but as you continue down the buffet, the colors of the food seem to blur together. That dull fried brown color is just way too prominent. There are a few other options of salad and fruit and maybe a soup or two, but the keyword is “few.”
The positive aspect of the buffet, other than the sushi, was the abundance of seating. Chinakrone offers two large rooms full of large and small tables ready for any sized party.
Also, it would seem that pets are allowed inside the restaurant, so you are able to bring your animal friends.
When it comes to service, this is a typical all-you-can-eat buffet except that you seat yourself. After choosing a table, make sure that you flag down a server and order a drink, because it would seem that it is a long trek to wherever drinks come from at Chinakrone.
