Food was just average, the sushi (what little they had) was sub-standard. I noticed a big line of folks waiting for crab legs ... seemed like the crab legs were empty 90% of the time I was there.

The employees were yelling at each other in a foreign language making it very difficult to eat. There is a good variety of food but it was not very good and dried out like it had been sitting there for quite some time and considering I was there right at a peak time it shouldn't have been. Not very happy... More

Most of the food tasted very old, like it had been sitting in the tray for a long time. I only found a few dishes that tasted reasonably fresh otherwise it was a disappointment.

This restaurant has authentic Chinese food! If you need your fix for Asian food, or more specifically Chinese food, then give this place a try! Also has hot pot dishes for big gatherings.

We went on a Tuesday evening with two Chinese students, one who adored the menu offering of dry pot and the other who had the buffet but said it was only okay and very Americanized. My husband ordered a duck dish off the menu and was disappointed as it was bony with too much fatty skin and had weird gelatin... More

My wife & I have heard that this was supposed to be a pretty good place, and were out & about all day, and very hungry, so, we decided to try it for the first time. I was a bit leary of having the buffet, just because of the fact that there was only 2 other tables occupied (in such... More

I am not normally one to write a poor review, personally, I do believe even the best places can give a bad experience, however, I will never recommend this restaurant ... the food was worse than something I can buy at Wal-Mart and heat in my microwave at home.

Friends recommended this location, said there was a recent ownership change and it deserved a look. They recommended the szechuan menu. There is also a traditional Americanized Chinese menu and a Chinese buffet. Two of the four in our party had the buffet, two picked from the szechuan menu. The buffet was $13.25 inc tax. It was the worst Chinese... More

We came at 8pm and they were wiped out from the dinner rush. What was left was old. I was so disappointed after reading the great reviews of others on here. We never even had white rice the entire time we were here for our dinner. We asked for it 3 times. Platters of food were slowly coming out of... More
