We found this place very nice. Family oriented, lots of different choices and the ice cream was pretty good.

The steam tables are HOT and so is the food. Lots of seafood variety and even chilled crab legs! Super service with smiling faces and very clean!

The white & "fried" rice were dry and on the cold side. Mostly fried foods. The beef & broccoli and coconut shrimp really didn't have much flavor. The shrimp garlic with zucchini was overbearing with garlic. The place was bright so you could what you were eating. A cream puff was very grainy. The "sushi" appeared to of been just... More

I also liked the clams in... More
