Really mediocre. At 11:45am, everything except the soup was room temperature. The "teriyaki" chicken tasted the same as the "Thai" chicken. General Tso's wasn't the least bit spicy. If you wanna be full, but dissatisfied, this is the place to go.

I agreed with all the points brought up by the last review titled, "Concerned about eating there." I was running late for dinner with a skipped lunch earlier, I decided to take a chance and pop in.

As Chinese Buffets go, this one is a little below average. One of the entres in the evening consists of fish heads! I am serious. They skimp on the crab legs and have no real ice cream for dessert, only soft serve. The buffet on Harlem is better, but a little far off.

It may be intimidating to navigate through the crazy wal-mart parking lot but this is a pretty good Chinese buffet. Positives: for dinner - the crab legs keep coming and the wonton soup is good too. not so positive: lots of kids running around, gets busy around mealtimes, crazy wal-mart shoppers who can't drive or park. still a pretty good...
