I usually go to Imperial Buffet for Lunch once every couple of weeks. For one person including Tax and Soda it comes to $10. 99% of the time the food is excellent. My favorite is the Sea Bass. The sushi is also pretty good. Chinese and American Food items. They take care of me very well here.

Stopped for dinner and I should have looked first. Like other Chinese buffets, this place looked like lunch warmed over, but at a higher price. $13 for dinner plus soft drinks. They are in a strip mall. No alcohol, but a hand printed sign says they are waiting for the license, so bring your own. As buffets go, it is... More

This is a good family restaurant. The food is very good and the selection is large. I go here often and the menu changes .. I love the green tea ice-cream for dessert!

I was so tired of fish! I found this a nice break from big meals. I love buffets because I can take a little bit of a lot of things and I don't waste a lot of food. It was pretty typical Chinese fare, but it really "hit the spot" for me that night. The delicious unexpected conclusion to our... More

I used to eat at this restaurant all the time. They have a lot of buffet choices here, not only Chinese but American as well. However whenever I went there were always several items that weren't very fresh, especially on the dessert table. However, I haven't been to this restaurant since the Asian Bistro opened right down the street about... More
