Good Chinese Buffet for the area. Lots of food on rows of full tables, pleasant atmosphere (although being remodeled), attentive staff and pretty good eats. Just nothing special to write home about.

We ate during dinner. Lunch buffet price was lower and a better bargain, but I do not know how the selection compares. Dinner buffet is offered at a reasonable price and has a good selection of items to choose from. I found the temperature of the food to be a little too low, I like my food served a little... More

The food here leaves alot to be desired, everything appears to be over cooked and in the chaffing pans for so long it is all mushy. Worst lo mein we ever had.

We well here for dinner because of an advertisement that an hibachi was on site. When we arrived, a signage was on the door stating hibachi was coming soon. We decided to take the chance and try. The food was average nothing to write home about, Will not go back.

We were tired and hungry after a long drive, and we picked this place because the parking lot was full. It had good reason to be. There was a huge selection of excellent food, and we had a great experience! This is one of the best Chinese buffets in existence!
