Pretty good buffet

Of course, it's buffet...don't expect a gourmet experience. But it was good quality and good selection. Was especially pleased to get shumai - my favorite dimsum item!

Had their buffet at lunch time. The food was cold......the town should send someone in to inspect the temperature of the food in the buffet. I would not recommend this restaurant.........dark inside and not terribly inviting.

The first time I ate here I was disappointed and rather than post a review, that was to me, an off day, I waited a few weeks and went back. Seriously! I wouldn't recommend this restaurant, unless it's thick cold noodles made into raviolies your craving, reheated too many times chicken wings, served cold, Basically everything was served cold, nothing... More

I'm not a fan of buffets but the kids love it; The food always tastes good and seems to be refreshed regularly; The service isn't perfect, but it's good; The price is very good for the range of food available.

If you're into fast food Chinese style, this might be the place for you. The restaurant has a great variety and quantity of Chinese food served buffet style, where you go to the multiple display tables of food and pick up what you want. The staff are good, the price is right but the quality could be better.

Usually just stop here to get a drink when we come to Sturbridge.Have had the food and it is okay;never did the buffet. Like a lot of buisnesses in Sturbridge it needs updating .I go here 2-3 times a year,but I would probably go elsewhere if I wanted Chinese food.
