Staff is nice and friendly, but the food is tasteless and will not agree with your stomach. I'm always amazed with the crowd this place draws. We went here once, and that will be it.

I have eaten there about a dozen times and depending on when they put food out, determines how good or bad the buffet is. I was there today at 4 o'clock, the dinner prices start around 3. The food was basically leftover lunch with no sushi out. Today was probably the worst time I have eaten there. Everything looked leftover.... More

Lukewarm, greasy food. Food kept at kids' sneeze level. Grim. If you must have Chinese, order off the regular menu.

The price is fair and the buffet is okay but it's small and lacking variety. And it NEVER changes. You'd figure that they'd rotate the dishes once in awhile, but no go, always the same. However their drinks are generous and reasonably priced, good place to have a drink. AND their menu is good and the food from the menu... More

Just sat at the bar and witnessed 2 people have to wait almost 45 minutes for their take out order. While people that sat 10 minutes after they ordered got their food faster (but not all at once). When the people that were waiting complained to management the food came out all packed up with either a manager (I think... More

The Chinese buffet experience is often a huge disappointment, but that can not be said about this place. There is the usual Chinese a la carte menu with a great array of Specials as well, should the buffet not inspire you. Service is fast and their is an attached cocktail bar for those who just want a great cocktail, and... More

This place is simply amazing! One of largest Chinese buffets, with a dessert bar, that I've seen in all of New England so far. The staff is very attentive, and the seating is comfortable. They have a fresh cut of rare to med. rare beef that you can cut your own from, in the back along with crab legs, -... More

Honestly, the food is okay but not amazing. I like the convenience of being able to pick from different things at the buffet. The selections are plentiful and the set-up is good. The buffet is a bit pricey compared to other places but the servers are nice.
