This restaurant used to be our favorite Chinese food. Not anymore..... We thought that maybe we were coming in just after a big rush because the dining room was somewhat on the dirty side. But now we know that isn't so. The same "dirtiness" is there every time. Booths, plates and especially the bathrooms. The help stay on their cell... More

Stopped here for lunch. Seated right away. Staff very friendly. The food on the buffet was very warm and they had a lot to choose from. They had the best egg rolls and crab Rangoon. Plenty of options to choose from. Dessert too.

After a long day hanging out on the beach, this was the perfect restaurant to satisfy my craving for some good Chinese food. The buffet area is a bit cramped and you can't quite read the food labels, but you can identify what they are if you've been to enough Chinese buffets. I got an eclectic mix of fried rice,... More

Excelent chineese buffet with lots of choises. We loved extreamly the tugfo soup. Lots of visitors so the food is fresh. The price is right and seniors are welcomed also with even better prices.

Everything here appears to be pre-packaged, probably right out of containers bought from a distributor. The decor leaves a lot to be desired, could use a thorough cleaning.
