Saturday dinner

Saw this place while cycling and went back for dinner. It was Saturday night and 4 tables were occupied. Selection was okay, albeit some food trays were running low or empty. Granted, it was almost closing time. Food was tasty; however, the place itself needs some TLC. Cost was reasonable at... read more

Nearby hotel suggested. First clue was no other customers. Would have left but had already walked out of another diner due dirty conditions. Food cold and appeared to have been buffet too long. Small quanity and selection left. No prices posted or menu offered. To top it all off cashier charged us $26 for two people. Hotel told us after... More

Interesting and good Chinese/Asian food. You order at the counter and they then prepare the order and bring it to you. The chef/owner is driven to excellence in preparation and likely will achieve it

No dog on the menu but beef, chicken, shrimp and fish are. Everything is cooked fresh. Plenty of vegetables. Honestly, I couldn't even try everything but I did manage the coconut shrimp, sesame chicken, beef and vegetables, another kind of shrimp and chicken and a pork entrée. It was all excellent. The owner and staff are friendly and efficient. The... More

We ate here a few ago and believe the food was a little better then. The restaurant itself really needs a refresh from the floorcovering to the walls and ceiling, the furniture and just about everything else. Staff is friendly and this makes up for the neglect of the premises a little, but not enough

The menu food far surpasses the buffet, and the portions are huge and family style to boot. Definitely get the general's or lemon chicken, although pretty much anything is awesome. The waitstaff is nice, but some of them do not speak English fluently, so be careful of sentence wording and grammar.
