Been coming here for decades. Great wait staff and very fast service. Bigger buffet than expected. The food may not be as seasoned as some like, but if you can't handle spicy food, this is a great meal.

The decor was attractive and the staff very attentive. The drinks were good and reasonably priced. However the food was very bland. The portions were large so there were leftovers but not sure I wanted to take them!

The waiter was good. The food portions were big. The food tasted just okay. More seasoning would have been good. The restaurant could use some updating.

At one time the premier Chinese restaurant in Rockford. Getting a little "tattered" around the edges.

I used to love coming here, but the quality has declined a little bit. They have a huge dining area and a bar, but it feels a little sticky/dirty and the chairs and things are falling apart. The service is always great and fast and...More
