Been going this place for 15 yrs. Always good food. Buffet menu varies, not like other places. Stuffed crabs are the best with small shrimps and scallops in the breading. Usually around 20 different kinds of sushi and mongolian grill items to order. Hand scooped ice cream, using proper sanitation practices with scoop. All around a well run place with a lot of tasty hand prepared entrees.

Based upon a Trip Advisor review, two of us decided to try the Uptown buffet. This all you can eat dinner for $12 Asian buffet had a very good sushi selection, very good fried crabs (which we can't find anywhere else in the buffet scene), very good baked scallops, very good fried oysters (the tartar sauce and cocktail sauce are located at the salad station, which we discovered as we were leaving), very good steak, very good vegetables, very good shrimp dishes, very good baked salmon filets, and a very good variety of traditional Asian items found at other buffets. To top off the meal, they have have a dozen different ice cream selections in those large buckets that you can scoop out yourself and a variety of cakes, pies, cookies, and other desserts. The ice cream was really good. Not a fancy place, but a good value with items different from the others.

Very clean. Delicious food. Great variety of meat and seafood. Even the sushi is good. We always come here for dinner when we want to fill up on good food. We like the quiet dining area as well. Music could be better lol

This restaurant is predominately the standard Chinese buffet with notable exceptions. There is a HUGE variety of fruit, salad, ice cream and not so Chinese sides and entrees. I have never been disappointed with my experience here. The place is clean, and efficiently run. Food is steadily replenished. There is almost never a tray on the serving tables that looks like it has lived there. I drive about 25 miles to eat here even though there are closer buffets where I live. Prices are one size fits all. There is a sushi and Mongolian barbecue available. I plan on going back when ever I get the urge to graze through really good food.
