One of the best Chinese buffets in the Verde Valley. The staff is very good, the food is very good. Get there early, the place can get crowed fast. They also have cook to order as well.

The exuberance and good nature of everyone whom came together to Sing Happy Birthday was so appreciated. From the owner, to the fast , clean, friendly efficient staff you find yourselves always attended to and always served well. Crabilicious !!! on my Birthday Friday and it was delectable. The salad bar is lacking variety yet desserts include puddings, fruit, ice... More

This is a very good choice for having the craving for Chinese. The menu is very good, but the buffet is excellent for instant gratification. Prices are excellent, as are the servers and the owner - he's seems to be there constantly ensures the food hot and fresh. You won't be disappointed.

I was very disappointed to discover after filling my plate that not one piece of food from the buffet was hot... not even warm. We left vowing to never return. Cold food on a buffet is a health risk.

The food did not seen authentic, plus it was over cooked and had a wide variety of different stuff. When going to eat that type of food you want it to be great. For me anyways it could have been better, someone else might feel different.

This is one of the best places in the Verde Valley for Chinese food. About 20 main dish items on the buffet with two kids of soup, salad and dip ice cream for desert. Best when busy as the food is refilled and freshly prepared. We were here at lunch time and about 50 other guests were here too.

Food was underwhelming. Everything looked and tasted the same. Low quality. But to be expected for a run-of-the mill Chinese buffet. Carpet was filthy and torn. Place needs remodeling and a good cleaning--making the atmosphere one of the worst I have experienced in recent years.

Good food and so much choice. You should not go away hungry. Casual, family atmosphere. Plenty of parking. Has been in business many years.

What a dissapointment. Maybe it was because it is Saturday night or, maybe it's because the staff is hungover, stoned or otherwise witless. Its a shame because a lot of the food was good. I think with some serious training of the staff this place could be good. Unfortunately when you have to wait to be greeted, wait for silverware... More
