I don’t care that it’s all so-so food here — the variety more than makes up for its “decent” quality — which is to say DONT GO TO A BUFFET FOR FINE DINING! However, if you want a whole lot of different kinds of food...More

Lots of chiseled choices, but very medium core food, generally over cooked and not very pleasing. If you’re hungry, it might do for a hungry man’s lunch or dinner, but personally I would not come here on a date.

Always a generous selection even when close to closing. The shrimp is to die for. Sushi available as well as most Asian food varieties. Soup area is well maintained. Never a bad meal although price creep has made it tough for a family of four.

Place with great selection and low prices. Everything is always fresh. Seafood, meats, soup, sushi, deserts, everyone can find something.

We were looking for Chinese because we wanted lots of vegetables. We certainly found that. Also lots of other choices. We particularly liked the hot and sour soup and the selection of chicken and beef dishes. If you like crab legs, this is a great...More

They charge different prices for lunch and dinner. Unsure what the charge is for kids. Best you call restaurant for prices.
