Great buffet featuring a wide variety of food. If you love the "Chinese Buffet" places, you will love this one. Can't wait to go back again when passing through the area!

Consistently excellent food. Friendly atmosphere. Easy to find, North off I-235 4 blocks to 4th light (University Ave). Left to 1st light, and right into the strip mall. On right mid mall area.

I don't have high expectations at Asian buffets. I like the variety but know that the food won't be as good as dinner cooked and served to us. We have eaten here before and enjoyed it. But tonight, the food was bland and rubbery (even...More

This may be my favorite Chinese buffet place. It is a set up like a standard Chinese buffet but they have a lot of items including sushi. Food is always fresh. The sizzling chicken is my favorite and is unique to this place. Plenty of...More
