They used to be a reasonable Chinese buffet but the quality is not as good as it used to be. If you are looking for a generic American Chinese buffet you may be pleased

Went here on my pass through town. Buffet is small and not alot of options. Grabbed a plate and all the food tasted off. Wonton meat had a weird after taste. Sushi was hard so I only ate half. Got another plate with different food. It consisted of fried rice, and piece of chicken. After a bite of chicken I... More

This place is slowly going down hill. Not very good sushi, and mostly vegtables in it, very little seafood anymore in the sushi, other than imitation crab. The number of offerings has also been reduced in my opinion. At best average for 7.99 +tax, and extra now for Hot Tea, come on!

This Chinese buffet place is decent, not very expensive. You can eat lunch buffet under $10, and dinner buffet is under $15. They offer egg drop soup and sweet and sour soup. I like their baked salmon and flounder and a variety of fruits, oranges, pineapples, and melons. For an additional dollar, you can ask them to prepare fresh Mongolian... More

This is a weird place to eat with marginal Chinese dishes and a pretty dirty eating area. I would suggest they enhance the food and clean up the place to make it more palatable!

We have been here many times and is always a place we fall back on when we need a good sized meal when we are in the area. Good selection available and regularly refilled but they are the usual standard Chinese options and don't change year on year. Not the best quality but that is reflected in the price you... More

I've been going there, a few times a year, for several years. Having not been there in awhile, I found a significant change ... for the worse. I give it 2 stars instead of 1 because the people are still very nice. Because of the reduction in food quality and cleanliness (see other reviews) i will not go again.
