We were invited in that Restaurant. There were so many choices. The food were very good. We appreciated the fact that our whole group could stay together, and enjoy our lunch without disturbing others. Our kids appreciated the ice cream machine.

Good Chinese food at a very good price. I enjoy myself every time I eat there, particularly the sushi bar and steamed salmon .

The restaurant looks nice, but the food is horrible, even during a busy lunch day. Small amounts were available, and it was cold before it was back at the table. You're safe with the fried stuff, but that's it. Take your money to one of the local takeout places instead.

Century Buffet is just that: a bufffet. Expect everything you expect from a buffet. Steam table after steam table filled with trays of Chines food: appetizers, entrees, sushi, fruit, soup, etc. Best to go at the height of lunch as the turnover for food is best then.

Very very disappointed in their quality of food. People raved about their king crab legs but all we saw was a few put out that were all scooped up by one or two people that got to the buffet line fast then they were not restocked the whole time we were there. The rest of the buffet food looked wilted... More

DISGUSTING DRIED OUT FOOD. Food looked like it has sat out for hours and hours- and we were there at dinner time! These dishes must have been put out for lunch. Even the "freshly" made wontons brought out while I was waiting tasted off. Quality of the food is so bad I will not be returning.

had been there once before and was less than impressed this time the food seemed fresher and the Mongolian grill was a welcome surprise. Over all not a stunning meal but solid fare.
