Best and worst Buffet in Rock;and/Westchester

In light of my experience at the new Ivy Buffet in West Nyack, I would like to nominate Hard Wok Buffet on Route 304 in New City/Bardonia NY as the best. As to the worst I think you know my choice, no use beating a dead uneatable horse.

    Chinese buffet or overall buffet?

    There is a Chinese buffet in New Rochelle that is disgusting. The Chinese buffet in POK on Route 9 is one of the best I've had.

        OK -- my choice for served buffet still has to be Restaurant X in Congers. Worst is Spiga in Hartsdale or wherever they are.

        Kittle House and Sunset Cove are only okay. These are all breakfast buffets, I haven't been to any dinner buffets.

        Yvonne's was good, but I haven't been to their new location in Mount Vernon.

        There aren't a lot of excellent buffets in Westchester, and I am not that familiar with Rockland.

        POK? Route 9? In what town- 9 runs upper to lower westchester... Henry Hudson even.

          It might be Fishkill. It's near an outlet where they used to have Bass shoes.

          Sorry, but it was a long time ago. They might not even be there anymore.

          **I think this is it:

          Hudson International Buffet
          18 Westage Dr
          Fishkill, NY 12524

          Buffets, by nature, are pretty awful. They're an appeal to the American propensity for gluttony. I vote for smaller portions of great food, any day. And I want to be seated and served when I go to a restaurant.

            agree with the the gluttony point. but i don't mind counter service if the food is good.

            I haven't been there in a while, but my family used to go to New Country Buffet on Rt 59. It's pretty good.

              Our fave in Westchester is King Buffet on Rte 6 in Mohegan Lake (just off of the Bear Mtn Pkwy). They've been around forever and frequently add new things to their buffet and have some items (including roast duck) which I haven't seen elsewhere.

              I haven't been to the buffet mentioned in Fishkill for a comparison, but hope to do so in the near future.

                  Michele Cindy,

                  It is probably around 10 miles.
