ok eats

They did have quite a bit of different oriental items selections. They did have some other items which were non Asian and their salad bar looked ok. I enjoyed my selections on the Asian buffet but really didn't think they had a very varied buffet

I was traveling and just did not want fast food. I was by myself and just did not know what I wanted. Some items were great, others not so much but you can pick and choose, so I took tiny amounts the first time as there is a very large selection. I was there a little after noon. The buffet... More

I noticed the food was cold and didn't seem fresh. I guess you have to go during the busy part of the day in order to get warm food.

That is it. Just terrible! The food, the service, the atmosphere. I thought it was going to be okay with all the reviews, but I was SADLY MISTAKEN! We were there just before the lunch rush, so we expected to have a good selection of food. The buffet was almost bare. What was on there was overcooked, and almost empty.... More

They have many choices of food. Taste are good too. The desserts sectioonis awesome with fruits ans ice cream. They have shrimps always which is my husband's favorite. And since it is buffet so the charge is flat and if you don't want to spend more, do not order tea because it is expensive.

Better than your typical Chinese buffet.... They had some things that I didn't expect and missing some things I expected. All in all, it was good.

This buffet was pretty good. The building isn't the best to look at, but the inside was clean. The service was very good and the waiter kept our glasses filled. The food was very tasty. I would return back if we were in this area again.

We usually have pizza night on Friday. However when we have grown tired of pizza this lil buffet gives us our Chinese fix. I haven't eaten anything from the American side of the buffet.mi think they could remove it and most wouldn't complain. The sesame chicken & the beef broccoli are my favorites. I don't eat the rice. I like... More
