If you are into Chinese buffets for quantity instead of quality this is the place for you. The food is average in almost every way except for the noodle dishes, like Lo Mein, which are almost always way too mushy. I only eat here when Chee Peng is closed.

I have often eaten at this restaurant, partaking at the buffet as well as ordering from the menu. The food is always fresh and delicious. A Russian soup is offered, which is different as well as delectable, in addition to the standard Chinese soups. In season, at the evening meal, fresh crab is available. The service is excellent, and I... More

First, this location has a buffet and a sit-down menu area. My review is only of the menu area. The night we were there, there was only one waitress, who kept getting orders confused. However, the big problem was the kitchen. Our lemon chicken was way overcooked and the chicken like rubber. The worst was the vegetarian spring rolls. Nothing... More

As a long time customer we returned to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Although the food was for the most part good, there wasn't much available. When paying $17 a person we expected that buffet to be fully stocked with fresh, hot food, as pictured on Facebook. But to our surprise, we discovered that half of the food trays were empty... More

Terrible. Nothing but left overs on buffet. Scalded soup. All enhanced by the pugnet smell og pinesol while eating. Just plain awful.

The actual buffet is a touch overpriced but the all you can eat crab legs make up for it. Absolutely the easiest and best crab legs I have ever had. The easiest to crack I have ever had and the warm towel at the end was a fabulous touch. Totally worth it.

As long as you get there before the buffet is winding down for the day, you will be one happy customer. If you get there a little on the late side you will not be as happy. Lol

Hunan Chinese restaurant had great service and very good food. Our waitress was very attentive and we even received a hot wash cloth to wash our hands😀 The Best Western hotel is across the parking lot from Hunan and we received a 10% discount since we were staying there for the night.
