We have bought food for take out approxmately, 3 times because my Grand-children love the Beef and Broccoli. The staff should be well versed in English so that they can without a doubt understand your order. The one female hostess that had taken our order several times prior has much more understanding of the language and what you are trying... More

I love egg foo yung, and after moving to Cookeville last year, have been missing the place in Franklin, TN where I used to live that had nearly perfect egg fu yung. The egg foo yung itself was good, as was the white rice that was included in the order. But the gravy was like a thin brown gravy out... More

I usually get take out from this place and i thought about it on this visit but I decided to eat their buffet. It was a good buffet. It is not as large as some but it offered things I liked and it was good. I would for sure eat there again.

food tasted like it was leftovers chicken was tough and it had very little flavor. The Pork fried rice tasted like white rice and the sweet and sour sause was watered down

Their buffet is sadly lacking in variety but their takeout menu is pretty good. I've eaten here several times. A little bit pricey but freshly made.

The hot n sour soup was good and the chicken on... More

I used to go here more often when the buffet was only $5.50. Out of the three buffets in town, this one is the smallest, but there's something more authentic about the food here. I would probably eat here more, but most of my friends and family like Panda Garden better. However this restaurant still has a good place in... More

This is our favorite for Chinese take out. The buffet is okay, usually fresh, but with limited choices. Go for the food, not the atmosphere.
