Buffet Village isn't all lit up / flashy like some Chinese restaurants.. and you might miss it driving by, even though it's on the main road. The locals sure know about it! Though small, there's plenty of seating, with LOTS of food choices, including fresh fruits and... More

This is a restaurant with a standard type buffet. You can get full but it is not always the best food. It is ediable but not high priced.

Some fresh fruits, deserts and sushi all at same back location. Area smelt like moth balls. What I thought were egg rolls, were cabbage rolls. Not the best selections.

Went here for lunch and the food was cold. Tried it for dinner on another day thinking maybe food would be better------it was worse. I think most was left over from lunch. Only redeeming factor was the Mongolian Stir Fry Buffet, it was passible.
