This is a good place to go, price is really great and the food good. Since it's in a smallish area if you during off hours you may not get as fresh a selection. That's when we may just order it to go! It's nice...More

Pretty much the same food you get at every other Asian Buffet around the metro area. Like all Asian Buffets, make sure you have a toilet available within an hour after eating...

$44 for take out. Big city prices. Poor quality food! The food was by far the worse Chinese food I have ever attempted to eat. Even the cream cheese wantons were nasty. I threw all of the food away. Please save yourself. Do not eat...More
