I heard all kind of good things about this place. What a big disappointment. Food was greasy, almost everything is fried. The place is big and well lit.I dont recommend this place.

This was our 4th year and with most places to eat, this one was open on this day. Most other establishment are closed Christmas Eve. We are little people but pay a large persons buffet price.

Overall, their buffet is always well stocked, the food is good and for the money, a good value. Also, the dining room is big and open so it is easy to converse with your dining companions.

I liked the variety of the buffett. Many times you find the same items at every Chinese buffett. Here there were many familiar favorites, but I also found some new ones!
