I stayed at the hotel directly behind this restaurant. I love Chinese food so I was excited when I saw the sign but a little weary by the way it looks on the outside.

It's a decent Chinese buffet. Not the best I've ever had. It's a pretty good selection for the price.

Property is rather dingy, but food was reasonably good for a Chinese buffet. Nice selection and variety. We went at an off time and food quality was still fairly good and fresh. Location convenient to I20.
