The selection is typical Chinese buffet. Mongolian grill, but I didn't see anyone use it. Sushi as well as western salads on the buffet as well as all the traditional Chinese items. The food quality was good, service was friendly and credit cards were accepted.

The restaurant seems to be managed by children as there were 4 tv's each displaying a different program and volume was very loud on each. My server was rude and inefficient. The food on the buffet was very bland and it was very picked over at 5:30 on a Friday. If you want asian food in Shelbyville, look elsewhere.

There were many choices of prepared foods plus the option to have freshly-grilled dishes from the Mongolian grill. Beverage is not included but the price for dinner was only $7.95!

Most of food was acceptable. They do the grill thing there too. Every one of the crab legs had some sort of bruise, crack, perforation, or defect extending into the "meat" making me believe they are third rate. The tea had a lot of stuff floating in it, my date asked for a fresh replacement, they told her it would... More

We had a wonderful lunch here, the food was hot and fresh and we were one of the first there that day so everything was yummy! Staff is friendly and we enjoyed the fact that all was very clean.

This restaurant is speedily going bad. This used to be our favorite place but lately the place has been dirty, the food was not fresh and the service is horrible. I understand that they do not speak or language but they could have a pleasant demeanor but they all act like we ate a bother to them every time we... More

Food was a usual chinese buffet. The floor needed to be vaccumed. There were about 6 tables of guests and more coming in.
