We have been there twice in the past and found it was not worth going back. the food was blah and worse than a food court in a mall. It amazes me that they are still in business.

Out driving and saw this place tucked into a small shopping center. I was not disappointed. Their hot and sour soup was just right. The mu shu pork was plentiful and fresh. The foil wrapped chicken was seasoned just right. I will be back.

Typical Chinese restaurant atmosphere. Pleasant, not posh. We were told about Dan Dan noodles, so tried them. OK. The duck was a bit greasy, as duck often is. The Walnut Shrimp was very nice. The star of the night was ... green beans. Yes, green beans. We had white rice, Kirin beer, and wine.

Good choice for to-go. They serve huge portions. A little pricey, but tasty and very fast service. Nice staff.

I went in on a Friday evening. Looking for a wonderful plate of combination fried rice and some pawns. Well, the rice had no taste, all the meats and shrimp had no favor! The rice was old, I was so, so, disappointed!! The fried pawns were flat and fried so much, there was not much pawn in there!! The help... More

We were staying in the area, and the motel recommended this place. It is OK, but not a place to visit if you want gourmet food. We won't go back.

There are several Asian buffets in this region, this one is my first choice. Once seated you serve yourself. There is a large variety of different foods from China & Japan along with a mix of American items. My favorites include barbecue Pork, Chow Fun noodles, Sushi, Teriyaki Chicken sticks, Hot & Sour Soup, the list goes on & on.... More

We had a group of 5 and we were eating a pre race marathon, the night before the California International Marathon, so we had some menu adjustments we hoped for. The staff were excellent and the chef was fantastic. He ensured 3 of our dishes were gluten free and also adjusted the veggies for 2 of us to prevent bloating... More
