Okay place to dine in a hurray.

We had not planned to dine at this restaurant but because our car was getting serviced 1 block away and it was dinner time we decided to dine there. The waitresses were quick to get us seated and because it was buffet style it did not take long to start eating. The buffet was not extensive but had... read more

Taking friends or family to the buffet for either lunch or dinner is an inexpensive convivial opportunity. The staff treats you like family (of the good kind), the buffet table is freshened up SO OFTEN and the food is first rate with lots of taste. We will return.

Almost everything was disgusting and I used to enjoy this place. The rice was bland, the noodles were hard and crusty, the veggies tasted like butt, the fries and wings tasted like they were cooked in old oil, the soft drinks were watered down. The highlight of the meal was the fortune cookies...which were likely ordered in bulk from Costco... More

Went for the supper buffet with friends on Sunday March 15th. Arrived just before 5 p.m. There were many choices on the buffet, all available and all were hot and tasted very good. Service was great as far as beverages and plate removal.

This is a basic unlicensed restaurant best known for its fair value Chinese food buffet. Selection is limited but adequate for the non-epicurean diner. The menu never seems to change from one year to the next, especially the 3 item dessert choices – fruit, cake and Jell-O. My father, a senior and diabetic, likes the fact that the dishes are...

Ordered food for delivery. While the delivery itself was fairly quick the food was gross. The noodles tasted burnt from the pan and the chicken balls tasted like they had been bought from the frozen food section at Walmart. I won't be ordering from here again. Do yourself a favor and order from somewhere else.

Enjoyed dinner with friends who suggested this restaurant. Food was very good, atmosphere and restaurant is very typically buffet Chinese accommodations. Very plain and basic, but for those going for the community and conversation, that's a non issue~!

I love this place! I like that it is not very crowded whenever I go and really enjoy all-you-can-eat places. That being said, the food is not of an extremely high quality (especially if you are looking for authentic Chinese food) and the tables are not always the cleanest. However, I would recommend it to anyone that enjoys All-you-can-eat American... More

This is one of those "buffets" that has a little bit of everything you can try.. the quality of the buffet is top notch, and I would recommend it to anyone who loves Chinese. They also have great cake for dessert in the evening buffet.
