This was a terrible experience. The food was not good. The steak tasted like processed meat. The fried rice was good. That's all I enjoyed

Well the people are nice enough but the food was warm not hot, and the crab rangoons tasted like the name sounds, the center was liduidy and had a fowl smell. The rest of the meal was ok can take it or leave it. If you need to feed someone quickly and want take out they are ok to use... More

Have everyone order buffet. Because , if one person orders off menu they charge you for buffet... Food was Luke warm and crab legs over cooked , they only brought a few out at a time.... Rice stocked right next to ladies room....Think I might get sick from eating here... Food inspectors should check out

It had been a few years since we had been there and we were sorely disappointed. The food was mediocre at best. The crab legs were over cooked and the worst we have ever had. Not sure how they have stayed in business I suppose quantity appeals to some more than quality. Sad as it used to be so much... More

One of our families favorites. Well kept, very large selection. Wonderful sides, such as salads, fruits, excellent desserts. Service good. Most sealers and servers not too proficient. In English but, spoke basic, "hello, drink"etc;

We would have a lot of selections of food to pick from. We would go there for lunch & never had any problems running out of what you want. They would make sure the items were filled so you want to wait. I don't go there after the lunch time because I feel that you get left overs that is... More

The only bad thing about this place was the attitude of an employee who appeared to be the manager. He appeared extremely hostile to his staff and responded in a very angry tone when we asked for a table instead of a booth. The Chinese food was average compared with others of its kind, but they had the best mac... More

We had eaten here before and it was good. We went again and it was a disappointment. The Thai chicken was good and warm. The rest of the food was okay if it had actually been warm. We will try it again and hope the last visit was just a fluke.
