Just visited this restaurant for the first time. Pretty much what I expected. Typical Chinese buffet. They do have a menu that you can order off of but I was not aware of this until I went to the counter to pay after my meal....More

This is a decent place for Chinese food. The buffet offers a lot of choices, but the quality is only average at best. We have gotten take out several times here and the food is much better. We usually ask them to tweak things some...More

Menu offers an adequate selection of oriental food. Self service or order from the menu. Good selection and quality is good.

food was fresh and hot, it was good but nothing that stood out from the typical buffet. They do have a menu that you can order from but it wasn't given to us as an option, we were just told to go to the buffet

This restaurant could use an upgrade all around. We went at about 6:30 and some of the food was dried out like it had been sitting a while. There weren't very many patrons so maybe that's the problem. If nobody is eating the food it...More
