After getting a "buy one dinner, get one free" coupon from the Imperial Buffet in the mail, we decided to taste test the weekend menu of this restaurant for comparison to similar establishments. Upon presenting the coupon before being seated, we were advised that the payment had to be in cash. The establishment felt very basic,but clean, no table cloth,... More

I took my family there and we were very disappointed. We have been here before and it seems the quality is dropping. The food was cold and had been on the buffet far too long. For $30 a plate, you can get much better food elsewhere. We will not be back.

I used to enjoy this buffet with my family quite often, but after the last two times we visited, we will never go back again. It has gone down drastically and the food is nearly inedible. High prices, mediocre service, and the worst food I've ever had at a buffet. I would recommend going anywhere else.

We continue to go way out of our way to visit the Imperial Buffet. This place is the absolute best buffet anywhere. The food is great with lots of variety.

Hot food average but not very hot. Deserts are very good. Over all not bad but make sure you have a coupon as price is very high otherwise.

I like that they have a variety of all you can eat buffet... including desserts. .. very clean and very spacious. .. Recommendable for a family affairs or even for a quick bite to eat, because their price is reasonable especially at lunch time.

As far as a buffet goes, it's decent. The selection isn't bad, and the food is good when it's hot. I made the mistake of not eating my food the moment I sat down, and it wasn't great. Still, they have good choices for kiddos. I would recommend large groups go here

I come always due to the coupons. When paying cash with buying two drinks, it is very hard to beat. Coming out of there paying $24 bucks with all you can drink soda and buffet for two is hard to beat. There is something for everyone if you care to do a bit of work. There are 10 sauces or... More

We decided to try the Imperial Buffet again but the food was even worse than last time. The crab legs were overcooked, the noodles and everything else was cold including the soup. I have to say that for the cost of this meal, we would have been better off at the Mandarin. At least the food there is hot and... More
