Not too impressed

We were looking to try a new restaurant in Duncan for the family and I have driven past this place several times. The interior was run down with stains in the carpet and the tables were uneven. All the cups and utensils looked dirty. We had the buffet and the food was bland and over battered. The... read more

So we decided why not try it...well we looked at the buffet and were not impressed. It looked dried out and had been there for awhile. We ordered off the menu... More

Hadn't been here for a few years and was really in the mood for some chinese food. We tried the buffet and since it was just after 5:00 figured everything would be fresh. The rice was hard. The sesame chicken( ? ) was like chewing shoe leather. The squid was tender and the best thing there. The chicken wings were... More

Usually dine in for their smorg. More often than not you have to wait for the items to be refilled before you can start. The dining area is very drafty (cold) and the owners seem to hover over the wait staff which I find really annoying.

I will never eat at this restaurant again. The food was sub-par, the staff were rude, the management were rude, the ambiance was non-existent and the place was dirty.

You couldn't pay me to dine here again. The owner treated my family very poorly. I will never recommend this establishment to anyone.
