We live in Raytown, and always choose Mama China's to eat. It's affordable, the food is warm, and very good. The women who work there always remember what we like to drink, and are happy, no mattter the rush of people. The variety of food is pleasing to the taste buds, and pleasing to all ages. There is also a variety of desserts, and salads. Besides a friendly neighborhood restaurant, it's one, if you're in the area, you should go and check out.
I live in Illinois, but every time I am in Kansas City I have to stop and eat at Ma Ma China. The food is good, the price is reasonable, and the service is great. And on top of all that, it is all you can eat.
The buffet is really good and fresh, but unfortunately it is not a very pleasant dining experience. The restaurant is always really crowded and noisy. With their obvious success, I think they could invest in some softer lighting and some background music. It's difficult to relax when you are hearing conversations all around you. Again, the food is very good and it would not take too much of an investment to upgrade the dining room atmosphere
The food is always hot and fresh - if its not, they will make it fresh for you immediately. The gals remember you and if you significant other isn't with you, they ask about them. Service is great and place is always clean. Walnut Shrimp is a good one to try - along with all the other favorites.
