This has to be be the best chinese buffet I've been to in San Antonio. Food is fresh and you have lots to choose from. You can see that there is always a line to come in. Great price compared to others.

We went to this Chinese buffet for lunch. The selection is excellent. Service was fine. Food quality was average and typical for such a location of this style. We ate our fill. The Pho station is very good.

Had lunch there. Good variety of food that was presented well and was warm. There was never an empty tray. To often buffets get cold or run out of food. Not the case here. Wait staff was attentive. Restaurant was clean and plenty of room.

Large assortment of seafood, chinese and american food. Food is good quality and presented in clean environment. Plenty of servers ready to help, which was surprising for a buffet. Large crowds but people are processed through quickly.
