Thoroughly enjoyed the dinner buffet. Great selection in dim sum. The egg rolls were perfect as were the potstickers. Atmosphere is typical chinese, but very warm and inviting, also very clean. The staff were very accommodating.

We visited here with friends who have been here before. The buffet had lots of choices, both meat and vegetarian options. Unfortunately some items were cold and did not have much flavor. The server did not assist with the dim sum cart when we asked for certain items. The staff was quick clearing off plates when needed. The place was... More

I have eaten here twice, once at the buffet and once off the menu. Buffet was pretty good and seemed pretty fresh. There were a lot of people so the food didn't sit very long. Lots of choices. Next time we ordered off the menu and the food was even better. Huge portions and great flavor.

I frequent this place- it's a great atmosphere, very typical Chinese restaurant. The food is great, but the buffet lacked a little. There is a great selection and the food seemed to be refreshed frequently - It is well worth the money, but I would recommend eating a la carte. The prices are decent, and the food is always better... More

This is Americanized Chinese food at its worst. Nothing in here is authentic and the selection is poor. Came here for a weekend buffet and was disappointed. You can get much better Chinese with a short drive outside of Lexington. Or even at Formosa Taipei.

I have been here a few times and I have always had great luck with the buffet. The food has always been very fresh and doesn't look like it's been sitting out for an hour. Once you're done eating your meal, don't forget to leave room for ice cream and their other desserts.

This place was a regular haunt when I lived in Lexington. My visit this time 16 years later was with my son, his family and the in laws. We had the brunch and dim sum cart and it was a treat on all accounts. Fresh fare, many choices and not over done with oil or bland versions of Chinese food.... More

This is a great convenient spot in the middle of historic Lexington! This is a nice place to come with friends or family and there are function rooms available for a large gathering. They have nice comfortable booths and tables so you don't feel like you are in a noisy Bistro. You actually can talk with the people at your... More

Had the pleasure of attending YR in Lexington depot square for the 1st time with friends for dinner. Buffet was plentiful with Chinese takeout staples: general gau's chicken, fried rice, and shrimp with steamed vegetables. I liked the rice noodles with vegetables the best; they had brown rice available for those who do not wanted white or fried. The teriyaki... More

Excellent buffet, good prices and very good service. I was surprised that in the middle of historic Lexington I found a pleasant Chinese restaurant that the family liked and prices were good. Buffet served during lunch and dinner. we had lunch
