The flavors were good, bourbon chicken a thumbs up. Rice on the buffet was hard obviously sat in warmer to long. And the underside of my egg roll was soggy. Will order from the menu next time.

Very nice buffet with a lot of choices. Restaurant is very clean and the staff is very helpful and friendly. Such a surprise that every Mother was given a box of tea bags for Mother's Day.
