Consistently good year after year

At lunchtime, they have long offered a very manageable buffet. There are about 15 items on it and everything is prepared well. Caveat: they have begun to sweeten the hot and sour soup, which is a terrible idea.

Good--Food was presented attractively and served quite promptly. Service was friendly and attentive. Okay--The food, which was satisfactory but really didn't have much flair.

In comparison with Chopstick, Delight and No.1 Chinese, this is not the best one, but acceptable. Looking outside, it doesn't look like a restaurant though (I thought it were a Chinese theatre first time I saw). The taste is ok. The price is higher than other Chinese ones for the same dish, same price, but got less foods. No windows... More
