Not the cleanest buffet I have ever been in. The food was average, not bad, but not great. The price was a little high, they had snow crab legs on the menu, but they didn't refill them as fast as the customers emptied the dish. Several patrons were disappointed that the crab legs was constantly empty. Not terrible, but not... More

Fifteen of us went here to celebrate a birthday. After reading some of the previous reviews I was skeptical but to our surprise the food and service were great. They had many choices one of which is my granddaughter's favorite, Crab Legs. Everything was hot ans fresh and the waitstaff was very attentive. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Ive been to this buffet several times, because it is near another store that I frequently shop at. Everytime Ive gone here , it gets worse. A few days ago, I spent 13 dollars on lunch, with a soda and a tip. And the food was nasty. They actually had a burnt dried up piece of what looked like cardboard,... More

I don’t write many reviews. So this will probably seem wordy to you experienced reviewers but so be it. I've been to this buffet dozens of times. The food is exactly what you would expect from any Chinese buffet. If one is visiting a buffet of any kind, one should not be critiquing the food as if they expected gourmet... More

Our family visits this buffet often. We like it here. There is a very good variety of food, 80% of what they serve is similar from visit to visit but there are small changes to the menu every time we return. There are people making simple rolls to order and there is a hibachi to order as well. I have... More

I kind of give up on chinese buffets. The food is never hot enough, or fresh enough or even chinese enough on occasion. This one is better than the one on Silas Deane hwy and Kane st, but its still the same old thing. Poorly made Gen tsos, chicken wings, bad lo mein, etc etc. I go here if I... More
