Was a weekly favorite

I used to visit this restaurant on a weekly basis. The buffet options are great and have not been able to find another that makes honey cashew shrimp like they do.

this place has weird hours, i seem to always want to come here when they are closed. i've only ever had their food to go, but it is really good and pretty cheap for the amount that you get. cant go wrong with sesame chicken with them.

We eat here a lot - wonderful walnut honey chicken and the best lemon chicken in town. Although there is still a Tai Pan downtown, we usually eat in Madison.

The food is really fresh, they don't pack everything with broccoli. It's a good mixture of vegetables. The fried rice isn't greasy, as it is at so many other places. They also only use white meat chicken, not the greasy dark meat. If you haven't eaten here, you should try them out. I highly recommend them.

Stopped in before 6 pm without reservations on an April Saturday night looking for a buffet. We found a mostly empty restaurant with a host and one waitress who appeared to be pulling multiple duties. The menus were quickly provided by the host as he sat us in a booth with uncomfortable cushions. We took note of the empty buffet... More

This is a great Chinese buffet. We ate the buffet one day for lunch and then ordered take out. There was plenty of food for take out as well as a variety on buffet. Buffet ends at 2:00.

Have eaten lunch at this location 3 times and have no complaints. Service is good and atmosphere is ok. Buffet is given lots of attention and is hot and fresh. Place has been here for years so they must be doing something right. I give em 3 out of 5 forks. Go ahead and check em out.

If you don't mind food, a napkin or a fork lying on the floor .... we went there for lunch: the food was ok - though we've seen larger selections at Chinese buffets. But the whole time we stayed there a plastic fork and a napkin and quite an amount of food were lying on the empty table next to... More

My wife and I came here about 11:30 for the lunch buffet, on a Thursday. This was early, so most everything in the steam trays still appeared freshly cooked. I tried some of each food that looked interesting. Everything I tried was at least average, and many things were very good. The background music was classical Chinese, with the volume... More

Try this one for lunch. It has a great buffet. My favorite items on the buffet was the Black Pepper Shrimp, but I really like shrimp.
