A very attractive authentic looking restaurant.. The staff are friendly but the food is lacking in variety and quality. All I ate was soup. Unfortunate as it was the families gathering for Easter.

We had lunch at this restaurant and it was okay. The place was very crowded. I found the price is too expensive for okay food. Lots of oily food, salad bar is good and dimsum was okay. They have a variety of food and I don't find its great other than salad bar. I heard their seafood selection is okay.... More

Always a delicious dining experience. Twenty of us from work had a celebratory lunch. There were no issues with the reservation and we were seated together at one very long table. There was a vast selection of Food choices including salad, hand rolled noodles, sushi, dim sum, soups, etc. Enough to satisfy even the fussiest palate. Service was prompt and... More

Huge restaurant, decorated nicely. Can accommodate very large parties. There was lots of meal choices. I think their dessert area could use more selection, Imperial Buffet and Mandarin have better dessert selection. That said I would rather have my meal here than Mandarin. I will definitely go back. The staff was friendly and quick.

Not a bad experience, but I found it expensive compared to other Chinese Buffet establishments that are within a ten minute drive from here. Visited on a Sat night and lobster was supposed to be in the all you can eat buffet but they had run out earlier in the evening. At almost $50 a head you can get much... More

The food quality was hit and miss in this enormous buffet restaurant. However, the establishment differentiated itself by the very entertaining live show. We found the service to be quite good.

I mean, it's a hog trough buffet, so you have to understand the quality isn't what you'd expect in a finer dining establishment, however the food is good. They have many, many selections to choose from, many authentic Chinese and Asian dishes, that should please every appetite. Many meats, vegetables, fried, or steamed. You can eat healthy here or you... More

I like this restaurant because it is esthetically pleasing and the food is consistently very good. The serving trays are refreshed constantly, and servers are always around, filling water glasses, napkins, etc. Love the very high back chairs out of rehabilitated teak.

Food was meh, service wasn't great, the place was crowded and it was hard to have a conversation over the noise. We won't be back and would recommend you look elsewhere.
