Probably the worse Chinese food I have ever had. Even for a buffet style it was terrible. The egg rolls were soggy from sitting in pans on the serving line too long. Tried some of the other items and was equally disappointed.

This place was great. Had plenty of choices and the kids loved it. It was clean, the staff was nice and friendly too. Just an overall great experience....nothing bad to say at all.

You pay the same price as you would for one meal at let's say Burger King or Wendy's, but the only catch is you get a lot more food here. Orange chicken and the fried rice are fresh and then the desert selection is really...More
