They never came to clear the dishes away and we had to go back into the restaurant to... read more

I am not quite sure what the issue was here. We ordered general's chicken, sweet & sour chicken, egg drop soup and fried rice. Honestly, the sweet and sour chicken was ok, the fried rice was good, but the egg drop soup was nasty, and the general's chicken looked like fried pork... came with a sauce on the side that... More

Some of the food looked as if it was left from lunch ... not that appetizing. The food was rather bland and not that appealing. Will look for a different buffet next time...

There is nothing outstanding or noteworthy about this restaurant. Although you can order either off the menu or eat their buffet most choose the buffet. Their selection of food is numerous but the quality is quite average. Being a buffet going away hungry is not a problem and is reasonably priced for what you receive.

Had a nice dinner. Friendly staff. Needs updating a little bit. Rice wasn't cooked to long, and vegetables were spiced right. Had house tea with lemon on the side.

Back in the 1990's was my first time of trying a Chinese restaurant. I had to find one just like it in Colorado. And guess what I did found one in Loveland, CO. And then my sister lived couple of blocks away from one in Lakewood, CO.
