Felt like a buffet. Never been here before, thought we'd try it. Place is IMMACULATE, including the BR. Servers ON IT - no errors, very impressed. I am diabetic so can't tell you much about the rice, etc but it looked OK. Shrimp was plentiful, clams over done a little but tasted good and a nice touch. Plenty of variety,... More

We love a Chinese Buffet and have visited a great many of them, but none of the others compare to the delicious food and great value of this one! They offer a really nice selection at both lunch and dinner and a variety of options that will also satisfy any in your party that may not particularly be Asian food... More

The selection is good, the food is hot and the people really care about quality in both the food AND the service. I go to this place over every buffet in the surrounding area.

Our family likes the buffet here. It has a very good selection of items. We like the flavor of the food here. Our favorites are chicken & broccoli and the peppered shrimp.

I don't think that the food was stored in the heat properly. It was not that great and made me sick that night.

The food is not at all bad, but it's nothing special either; The staff are friendly and clear plates as fast as you want, and you just keep grabbing food! Price is very reasonable; The range of hot food is also ok, with most of the popular food readily available; The food seems to be changed regularly. The desset bar... More

This is our local all-you-can-eat buffet. It is always delicious and the lunch price is under $10.00. Attentive waitstaff, lots of ornamental table and window ledge bamboo, and consistently delicious offerings. There is a dearth of Chinese vegetables on the buffet (Only one dish has a few pieces of bamboo shoots, water chestnuts, and bok choy; there are no lotus... More

My wife absolutely loves "all you can eat Chinese buffet" restaurants, so we end up stopping at one almost everywhere we go. This is one of the "top 10" buffets we've been to. Not everything about the place was amazing - a lot of it was average - but it stood out as exceptional in three ways. The exceptionally outstanding... More
