The food here is average. Its a little strange to eat at a place called Lisa's Kitchen and be eating a Chinese buffet but hay it wasn't bad just not what i expected. The people were nice and the price was not bad.

We used to love to eat here. Hubby loved the "American " food, I loved the peel-n-eat cold shrimp and the "hot-n-sour soup" embellished with extra small shrimp out of another dish and some of the low-cal recipes (garlic green beans, mushroom caps, etc.). But...More

I tried this place a long time ago, and it wasn't very good, decided to try again this weekend, and still not good. If you want Chinese buffet, lots of other choices. food was over cooked, not seasoned well, and over priced. Never again!
