My husband and I came here for a late lunch. It was our second time and we were pretty satisfied as our first visit. The foods were well made and good selections. We will try foods from menu next time. Highly recommended for family.

I've been here three times in the past two months and the food has always been fresh and tastes great. The people there are friendly and very courteous. A nice selection of items on the buffet.

This seems to be one of the last Chinese buffets in Saint Louis, so please pay them a visit! The other ones I had been to in the area were pretty disappointing, but this one seemed to have very fresh food, fast service, and a great selection of all types of food. Very reasonably priced too! Oh...and clean! Do not... More

Good food the first time when we order all spicy dishes, so we went again since we're in town. This time we tried all non-spicy dishes and we were very disappointed. Stir fry veg dish... More

Will this place ever slip in quality? We have been coming here regularly for more than four years, to the point that I forget to offer a Tripadvisor review because it’s such a common feature of our monthly schedule. But it deserves an updated review because it has to be one of St. Louis’s top Chinese restaurants, even though it... More
