Very good buffet, great variety, everything was good and food was hot. No issues with anything on the buffet running empty, the staff was very attentive and kept everything full and hot. I would definitely eat here again.

Tried the buffet a couple days last summer. Inexpensive. Large selection. Easy in and out for lunch. Staff friendly. All things considered, a positive location for good Asian.
