This is a place we enjoy visiting every time we visit friends in the Bradenton area. The buffet is very large and offers a great variety of foods, both Asian as well as some others. Lots of entrée choices, soups, salad, sushi, fruits, desserts and more. We especially liked the peanut chicken, and many of the seafood entrees. Would have loved to have seen Sesame chicken on the buffet ( a particular favorite of mine) but with so many other choices, it isn't all that missed. Ice cream choices were fairly basic...the orange sherbet was tasty. Everything we tried was delicious. Our biggest problem was not having enough room in the stomach to try everything ;). One improvement would be for the host to ask if your party would prefer a booth or table. Booths are difficult for parties of 4 (and especially those advanced in age) at a buffet because someone has to be inconvenienced for the inside person to get in and out of the seat. Makes for a lot of getting up and down unnecessarily. Otherwise, all was good.

This is the place if you like sweet Chinese food. First, its been awhile since my last visit. i was please to find the restaurant very clean and well maintained, this is not a new restaurant. I watched as the workers clean up hard for the evening scrubbing and sweeping thoroughly. If you like sweet Chinese food this is heaven, sweet & sour chicken, coconut shrimp, orange flavor chicken, general chicken, peanut butter chicken, sweet bananas and the rib tray was never empty. There are spring rolls, egg rolls, lobster rolls. And of course "Real" ice cream! including pistachio and cherry vanilla. Chinese food doesn't have to be sizzling hot to enjoy. None of the food looked stale or sitting very long. The kitchen people were constantly attending to the food. And the sushi part, well, the sign says "Chinese" not Japanese, so the minimum sushi selection didn't disappoint me. By the time I was done, I couldn't barely make it to the car!

Most of the items were almost empty and the egg foo young was cold. One of the worst buffets I have ever eaten at.
