There is no truly outstanding Chinese restaurant in Trenton proper, of which I’m aware. For excellent Chinese food nearby, check out the Szechuan House, in Hamilton, or Concerto Fusion (which adds Thai and Japanese) in Morrisville.

However, everyone has a yearning for simple, cheap Chinese food from time to time, and you don’t want to have to drive to get it. In a town where there are some truly dreadful take out Chinese joints….listing a few that are pretty good is a useful service. So here goes.

Kam Buffet is a post millenium buffet joint, with a large dining room and a huge array of steam tables. The food is good, and management takes better care to keep it fresh and turning over quickly than many establishments of this type. The dining room is pleasant, especially the room away to the right (you may not notice it, unless you look for it) which is separated from the steam tables and a little quieter. The selection isn’t enormous, but it’s pretty good, and given that it’s all you can eat, it’s a tremendous bargain. You can get a take out container by the ounce, but Kam is best experienced eating-in with a hungry crew.
