We had dinner once at this restaurant because it was the closest to the Ritz Carlton Rancho Mirage where we staid. Food selection was average but in line with what you can usually find in these restaurants. For $12.99 ++ you get what you pay...More

Many do not like Chinese buffets because they are not authentic chinese food. I like the buffets because I do not like waiting for my food. I dont mind having a self served approach to eating. It does not diminish my eating experience as eating...More

Food is mediocre at best. Half of what we are from the buffet was cold. Atmosphere is depressing. Almost surprised by the health department A rating given that the restaurant seems in disrepair and definitely dirty.
