I am a huge fan of JA Buffet, they have excellent california sushi and amazing cheese covered spinach. I would recommend being VERY hungry when you come as there are a lot of chinese/american options. Pass on the Pizza, it is pretty doughie

This is a average typical Chinese style buffet. Buffet is plentiful with a large selection. Service is good for drink refills. You can get hibachi or steaks cooked on the grill as well.

This place is by far the best buffet in the area. The food is good, a large selection of choices, hot and plentiful. If you enjoy oriental cuisine, you must eat here.

We had not been in this restaurant in several years when a friend suggested we stop there. We were very pleased with the choices of food and the amount of food. My husband and our friend had steaks made fresh for them on the grill and the little taste I had was excellent. Place is clean and nicely decorated.

Location was clean, neat and well maintained. All fixtures appeared to be in good condition and functional. Staff was friendly, kind and efficient. Food items were varied and well presented. Traditional Chinese cuisine was intermixed with American favorites, desserts, fruits and hot & cold vegetables. Items are not seasoned extremely well, but are welcome to the palate. I would have...

Food sucks, about the worst buffet I've ever been to. They actually time you so you have no chance to get your money back because they know how bad the food is. Don't go there unless you want to spend the next week in the bathroom. its dirty, food is overcooked or cold just bad. Dont do it!
