I went here on vacation with the family. They clearly have a sign posted that parties of 10 will have 15% added to bill. There was 9 of us that were there. When we were done eating I left the tip on the table as I expect them not to have added it. When we went to pay they did... More

I always enjoy this place when I can, because of the quality food, wide selection and super friendly staff and prompt service. I usually prefer to go for their happy hour special Monday to Friday 2pm to 3:30 PM $5.99. Everything always taste fresh & the whole place is very clean. I often use the wifi to get a little...

The food was crap. I tried some of everything and the only thing half way decent was the jello. The service on the other hand was good. The guy was very sweet and never let our drinks get empty. I definitely won't be back

My family and I are new to the area and we decided to try out the buffet tonight. I know that the trade off with buffet is usually lower quality food, but we have found some good ones over the years. However, this was not one of them. It started out with the kid that seated us asked what we... More

My family goes here every once in a while. Food has always been good and hot. Love their sushi selection. I love when you can get sushi on a buffet. My other favorite is their crab Rangoon. My husband always enjoys the hibachi where he can choose what he wants and they make right on hand for you!

The food had been on the buffet far too long. The management doesn't seem to care if you are satisfied or not and will not respond to your complaint.

I love a good Chinese buffet, but this one seemed to have more salad and dessert stations than actual Chinese food. I am not a Sushi fan and did not want to take the time to wait for Hibachi, so I was told that I missed the best part, but what I did eat....wings, egg roll, crab wontons, and the... More

If you like a lot of food, a lot of space/room, and a lot to choose from .... and the encouragement to enjoy all of this a lot, with time to spare.... This is the best Chinese food I've had!! You get a LOT for just a little! Can't beat it!!!

Hit or miss. Sometimes this Chinese buffet has food that is fresh and hot, other times it can be luke warm and a bit crusty/soggy.
