“Ample food and variety, inconsistent quality”

Shanghai
Cuisines: Chinese
Restaurant details
Reviewed 4 January 2017

We've eaten lunch here twice lately. The buffet offers a wide variety of pseudo-Chinese dishes, so there is bound to be something appealing to most people. You can load your plate with all you can eat, which may or may not be a good thing,

However, today some of the food on the hot table seemed to be warmed over, bland, and mushy. The hot and sour soup was thin and lacked flavor. The pineapple wedges at the dessert table were overripe.

On the prior occasion when we dined here about two months ago the food was better, in fact, much better, so I'll just call it inconsistent. Hopefully we will be pleased when we return, but that probably won't be soon.

The place outside before you go inside should tell you NO! It's even dirty around the outside of the property. The buffet is low or out of food a lot of the time. Never saw it stocked full, maybe they do, I've missed it. This place makes me wonder if the county inspector make take payola. Everywhere is smeared with dirty rags, tables, walls, booths, everywhere. I like Chinese or I would never kept giving them another try.

It is the only true buffet in town. The price is ok but a little high considering the food is average and the service is below average. They don't keep the bar stocked appropriately and you are often waiting for them to put out more or having to go with something else if your crunched for time. Some days they are really good but its become more often that they are not!

You can eat off the buffet bar any time or you can order off the menu. My favorite is the sesame chicken and rice. The tea is good as well. The waitresses are nice.

Food was cold and creepy looking. Only ate a couple of things and they were really not very good. The restaurant itself is not very clean.
