Chinese buffet that was perhaps the best that my wife and I have ever had. Extensive number of items and great ice cream and deserts. Would certainly eat here again

We went to see how their wonton was as the parking lot seems always busy. The soup was very flavorful however served in an old dish. The restaurant has the exact decor from the previous restaurant in the 80s. Nothing seems to have been updated. Old and dusty. Booth seats are ripped and old. A lot of people come in... More

If you were a vegetarian, then you might be a little underwhelmed by the buffet. But tonight it was a carnivore's dream... Melt in your mouth ribs were the headliner, but at least a dozen other delectable dishes of the protein persuasion... Pork potstickers were huge and tasty, and the hot and sour soup was also a standout. Spicy squid... More

Went there as the parking lot seemed busier than other Oriental Restaurants in town. Some dishes were okay (4 out of 5), buy most were below par (3/5). I'd describe the food as way too Westernized Chinese Food...plastic plates, Jasmine pot of tea used a tea bag instead of loose leaf, more of a gut fill place than a quality... More

We went to buffet after living here for 3 years. After reading reviews we thought perhaps people had no idea about buffets but we were disappointed. The food sat in sauces that were Luke warm. I like my food hot so for that reason it got one star. My husband was so excited to go and eat buffet and after... More

The location was very convenient (walking distance) from where we were staying so decided to give it a try. Typical Chinese buffet fare. Price was good, service was too.

Came for a late lunch on our way home. Food was quite good and reasonably priced. More authentic Chinese food than some other Chinese buffets that I have been to.

This place is horrible. We were starving after a long day and ate here today. We should have left when we seen the parking lot and lack of up keep. Cigarette buts and garbage everywhere. Gang signs on the walls. The front glass doors were so covered in finger prints and grime, we couldnt see through. The food was filmy... More
