Everything was incredibly bland and flavorless. The meat had a weird slimy texture, and it was also flavorless.

I think we paid $20 per person, for little take out containers that would have been $5.99... More

I regularly for dirty plates in the buffet line and the bathrooms are on par with a gas station for cleanliness. The food is typical Americanized Chinese food. Nothing special.

Just came here after a recent renovation from the restaurant. The place looks a hundred times better with the new renovation and the service is even better. I can tell they got new staff and everyone was in a good mood. The food was great and since the restaurant was full everything was fresh. Overall, excellent place

We had a group of 15 walk in for lunch and the service that we received was fantastic. The food was fast and they had some items that were gluton free as well.

The Chinese buffet has a great selection and offers a quick place to go for lunch. If you are not into the Buffett you can order off the menu - the war wonton soup is one of my Favorites.

The food was good. We ordered take out to eat with family. The service at the front desk of the restaurant was okay. We felt like we were bothering the lady when we asked for the paper plates and cutlery we had paid for.
