I went here for dinner, with a friend who loves this restaurant.This was the first time I had been here and most of the food was good. They have a very large selection of items to choose from. I tried three different kinds of chicken and they were all dried out, same with the rice. I am a big fan... More

Clean, mostly fresh buffet with sushi and mongolian BBQ. Lunch price currently $7.75 (less 10% senior discount if over 62). Some American items for picky eaters (French fries, macaroni and cheese, corn, rolls). Based on our group of 3 adults, we: HIGHLY RECOMMNED: honey chicken (made with breaded chicken breast), kung pao chicken, crab rangoons (lots of cream cheese filling,... More

They have a wide variety of food. I find Myself eating a little bit too much, when I'm there. You have to remember to leave the dining room through the same door that You came in; there is no fire exit. My only complaint is that the fee is a little bit expensive.

They have lots of variety at the buffet and the sushi bar, and do a good job with the Asian food, but don't seem to know how to cook American food properly. Also, beware that they have some unusual choices, like squid, so read the labels carefully. It is rather expensive as buffets go, I think about $13 per person.... More

A lot of the food was cold and dry out and the drinks were water down. The manager was a jerk. They charge full price for kid over 10. Last one of my kids got sick.

There is a wide variety of food to choose from on the buffet and it is labelled very well, they have fresh sushi, a mongolian style buffet where you can get fresh cooked food but if you want snow crab legs, you have to fight off greedy people with a fork. I experienced a woman take the entire chafing dish... More

So , we've all been to buffets and seen people who pile up plate after plate and don't eat what they take , for whatever reason, you may have good reason at Fortune Buffet to not eat what you take so ...take very small portions until you can determine if the food is edible. Now it's possible I just happened... More
