A friend who lives nearby recommended this place, he said the food is very good and always ready (buffet-style). We came in before my departure on Amtrak (Near The Lodi Station) and the food was plentiful. Delicious. Over Ate. Will Come Back. Five Claws UP!!! Joe G 'Bear'

First of all they are located in a strip mall so plenty of parking. Next you will be greeted by a very friendly Chinese Staff with warm smiles. Next you will notice the price for lunch is very reasonable for all this wonderful fresh food including Sushi, soft serve machine and a variety of desserts. Plenty of fresh cooked food... More
