Love this little restaurant. My very favorite is the chicken in peanut sauce. This is a very nice clean Chinese buffet. The staff is friendly and the food is great. If you like Chinese food I would recommend this restaurant very highly.

I was able to find something for everyone at the buffet over the weekend. When you have picky kids this is great. They were accommodating of large groups and worked well with kids. The place was clean and the food was good.

Small but adequately sized buffet. Wait staff was friendly. Food was okay but nothing was a standout. Sushi, even by buffet standards (vs a sushi restaurant), was not good. Probably will not return because although it filled us up, there has to be better options.

This restaurant is Chinese buffet, with added items like ice cream, snow crab, and some fruits. They never put out very much food at one time and the food is never hot. I stopped eating there all together
