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

Gave this place another chance following my disappointing last visit several months ago...its gotten even worse. Cold food, overcooked veggies, must have fired their good soup chef since last visit because the soup was their best item and now its awful as well. Price should be in the $10 per plate maximum given quality and variety. Even with a half... More

Overall, it's an average place. The facility is in desperate need of updating and a cleaning. The food was decent and the kids seemed happy with the options.

The service was great but the food was horrible. We went to enjoy the crab legs. I swear some if not most were spoiled. They tasted and smelled rotten. The chicken wings were more like shriveled and dried up pigeon wings! 30 bucks per person...even with a coupon it is not worth it!! I rated it a 2 only because... More

Used a BOGO free coupon for lunch buffet. With two drinks it was $21. The food is crap. Worst Chinese buffet I have ever visited. Very few authentic Asian dishes here. Believe the reviews.

They have a lot of food and it is presented well, but what I had was not very good. The restaurant is clean with an inviting atmosphere. Our service was spotty. Their prices are a little high, so I wouldn't recommend going without a discount coupon. The food was not appealing and I won't be returning.

We have not gone to the restaurant for over 7 years as our last experience was not a good one. We decided to give it another try, big mistake. The food is blah, the price is expensive for what your getting and there is nothing special about eating here. Take you money and go elsewhere! We paid $74 dollars for... More

The food is not very good here. A lot of it is dried up and bland (like the chicken wings) and seem to be sitting in the heated containers for way too long. The selection isn't good either, even the desserts are those simple treats you can find at any grocery store yourself. The actual restaurant isn't very inviting, it's... More
