You can find almost any Chinese dish and other ethinic food items. Run very professionally. Other Buffets could not keep up with them and they have disappeared,this one stays because it is the best . You get what you apy for and more. Always hot always fresh. Keep up the good work.

This place has its ups and downs, and this time while the food was good the staff pretty much sucked. No smiles, with looks like why are you here, eat fast and get out even though the place wasn't crowded. They sat us by one of their cleanup areas which stank from the scrapings of plates. Our waitress seemed to... More

We were traveling though at lunchtime and saw this large restaurant in a strip mall and thought we not. Boy were we glad we did. It was bright, clean and service was above average. The food covered a large range. I had raw clams, hot and sour soup, dumplings, sushi, and tasted several entrees inluding beef, pork, fish and chicken.... More

Everything you could want is on the buffet!! ...including some exotic items. The only problem is that some piggish customers make it difficult for them to offer adequate crab legs. But, there are so many other offerings that it is not necessary to fight over the crab legs. The raw fish is excellent and there are many varieties of fish... More

A lot of choices and if you find something you have not had before, you can take a small amount at first to see if you like. Sushi is fresh and we really enjoy everything we have tried. Lots of seafood and a very nice large sushi bar, which my grandson loves. Clean and very well kept. You will find... More

Clean, fresh and SO many choices. It is our spot to go to celebrate family events such as a good report card. Kids and grown up can find ANYTHING on this buffet. Sushi good, oriental and American fare, great salad, fruit and seafood. Good desserts, fast service.

My wife and sister visited this resturaunt for my birthday. My sister only goes to these buffets for the crab legs. She was disappointed that they were only putting out about a dozen legs at a time. She ended up standing there till they came out and put out about ten pieces. That's all she got. I always go for... More

Best Chinese Buffet in the area. Plenty of seats and a good place for a group. Great selection and variety, turnover is good so the eats are fresh. Sushi is good and the Hibachi makes it while you wait. Good selection of non-Chinese too, pizza, tacos, french fries and a carving board if you got a picky kid. The waitresses... More
