Average Americanized Chinese food. Good for local small town place. Very nice people. Little spendy for area. But it is all you can eat. I oder off menu because I won't eat $15.00 worth of buffet.

Perhaps I was spoiled by the initial variety and quality of the buffet Sushi & Sashimi which has somewhat deteriorated over the past several months. Most of the raw fish has been replaced with cream cheese, avocado, fake crab and such. Other than that, the buffet is not lacking in choices and quality. Great value.

I remember this place when it was a little hole in the wall. They had good food then. Now, the occupy the entire corner of Highway 12 and California St. The place is packed , that speaks for itself. Plan on gaining weight when you eat there, they literally have everything food wise.

This a buffet that also offers a la carte items. This is a great place to pig out on oriental food. BUFFET: The chinese selections are good. My only criticism is that they could stand to switch what they offer more often. Appetizers are great, egg rolls, pot stickers, deep fried shrimp, crab rangoons, all the good stuff. They also...

They greet you immediately as you come in, seat you quickly too. You can order from the menu or go directly to the buffet. They bring you very large glasses of water and very large glasses of your beverage. They also bring hot tea for you in a pot to finish off your meal with. The buffet has everything you... More

We chose this restaurant as we were camping in the area and the reviews seemed above average. I was a little disappointed however. There was plenty of food, in fact an over-abundance.

Their buffet beats all in the larger Valley cities. You like shrimp, they have shrimp...try the walnut shrimp. Over a 100 items, all a-one, great taste. Prices are low for what you are offered. Sushi, oysters and open-shelled seafood, sauces, kim-chi, salad bar,spicy general-chicken, all you can eat. All of this in a town of 700 or so folks. At... More
