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

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.

We visited my brother on the base and decided to try this place had good reviews so thought would try it big mistake. The place looks run down and old on outside and inside. The food was less than ok. They had tons to chose from but nothing with any good taste or flavor. I tried a few things I... More

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

It's an average Chinese buffet. The selection is decent with all of the signature Chinese dishes. The service was good. The value was really good for lunch.

Took a group of Boy Scouts for a weekend of fun and history of the territory. The boys wanted to eat Chinese so we ended up at the Family Buffet. This buffet is really clean and they kept the food hot and fresh. Sushi was ok kind of typical but not bad though. Service was good and friendly. We will... More

Wide selection of dishes and reasonable prices, but nothing to write home about. They have all the usual selections and everything we tried was pretty good. Nothing was better than pretty good, but I would go back again. An average (barely) Asian buffet.

A good variety for the price, but not all of it is good. It is kind of dirty (floors and bathrooms). The parking lot and outside of building is falling apart. The bathrooms are terrible.

A big variety of food on the buffet line, but the food is not very flavorful. Even dishes which are suppose to be somewhat spicy, are blah. But it is all you can eat, so you will not go away hungry. Service is good. It is located very close to I-70 with plenty of parking, so it is convenient. I... More
