They would be great if they ever had hot food. We always have to ask for fresh/hot food. I could see if we weren't paying for it. Why should we have to ask for Hot food everytime we go in. So now we found a Chinese rest. Around corner, they don't have buffet but their food is to die! The... More

Great old building that used to be associated with the railroad, spacious, with caring owners front and center. Not the largest selection compared to other options, but definitely the best quality. If you like Chinese buffets, this is a great choice.

We went to this place various times as sometimes we're tired of a farm work and need something ready. Apparently everything seems good and nice, but if you go more than once, you'll find out only cons. They let you pay almost 25 bucks for 2 people and you can get what you want, but I personally don't eat a... More

I have eaten here a few times while traveling in the area- the price is reasonable and I have always had good service. I generally eat the same thing- garlic green beans, take the mushrooms from the chicken dish, take the broccoli from the other dish and try to wrangle up any other veggies I can find. A couple of...

This was the worst Chinese buffet we've ever been to. First, we had to wait about 25 minutes for a table, which we thought was because the food must be really good but it turns out it was because the seat people in the order they arrive. There was a group of 8 they didn't have a table for so... More

The food is the same everytime you go. Somethings are ok some others are not very good, just kinda slopped on the buffet. I have given up after the last time, the cashier can be rude if you catch her on a bad day. The rest of the service is good, plates cleared, glasses filled, but the food? Cheap but... More

Classic "all you can eat" Chinese buffet. Unless you snag a dish when first transferred from wok to steam table - it all tastes the same... Sure there's shrimp - if you like brine shrimps less than an inch long. If you like chocolate pudding - that's an option. The place is identical with China Wok. All you can eat... More

The food is a typical oriental buffet , it is flavorful, not terribly fresh but the neat thing is the Grill. You can choose your protein (fish, beef, chicken, pork or tofu) then add fresh vegetables and they will cook it for you. All for the price of the buffet. It is a good deal and nice family atmosphere.

Thank M. D
