Stopped here for early Sunday dinner. The place was pretty busy but the service was very good. They had a great selection of items on the buffet as well. Although my coupon for $5 off two dinners had expired a few days prior to my visit, they accepted it anyways. Looks like they did some recent remodeling as well.

Good selection, Eat there about 8 times a year, for about 7 or more years. Will take guests there without worry of disappointment. You have to tell them if you are a senior as they sometime forget discount. Some seats are starting to show age.

One of the few really clean buffets I have been too. The food is almost always hot and fresh. Almost everything they have is pretty good considering it is a buffet. Crab legs are served only for dinner.

Paid dinner price for a buffet that was hardly stocked, mostly empty pans and food was cold! We were there for an hour and they did not refill anything I was very upset. The waitresses and waiters were on their phones busy texting. I have never seen that in a restaurant. When I left I complained to the manager he... More

When I am near Anoka I love to stop at this place. I have had great tasting food here such as the walnut shrimp and the Sesame chicken are two of my favorites here.

This place has everything to please every palate. Everything I've eaten there has been very good, flavorful and fresh. They have a huge variety. They also serve beer and wine.

For first timer I wasn't thrilled about my first experience. The guy at the desk was very rude, the server was nice, the food was good. But the rude customer service made me not want to return. You just get rung up for service. They don't tell you what you are paying for. They don't explain how there buffet service... More

Mediocre food, even by "Chinese buffet" standards. The spicy chicken was OK but everything else was very bland. Even the dessert bar wasn't very good; the creme puffs were dried out, and my daughter said even the soft-serve ice cream had a bland taste. Came away full but not having enjoyed it.
