Golden Phoenix.

First chinese place we found after moving here. This is one even the kids agree on. There are a lot of choices at the buffet. the food is always hot and good. The restaurant is nice and clean and the people are very nice. Well worth a visit if you like a Chinese buffet.

My family and I use to go once a week on Sundays. It WAS really good. We started going less often when our favorite waiter was no longer working there.

Since my last visit they have upgraded the sushi bar and added additional desserts for those who enjoy something sweet after your meal.

We went there as a family and the food was cold on the buffet. Everyone working there was sitting down at a table near us, talking. No one wanted to wait on you. We told them the food was cold and they argued about it. They are horrible with customers and serve chemical food that is chocked full of msg... More

There wasn't a lot there, but good enough selection. They put more effort into quality unlike most buffets. The staff was friendly and on the ball and the priced was very reasonable for a lunch buffet.
