Very good buffet for lunch and dinner

I have been going here for many years and still love it. Very moderately priced with an excellent buffet for lunch and dinner. Love being able to add my own cashews! Menu items are excellent as well.

Our first experience at this establishment was not positive, we got the wrong food after waiting for 45 minutes. The kitchen is run by humans, so we understood that mistakes are possible and should be forgiven seeing that nobody was injured, harmed or hospitalized. We decided to give it another try. The second visit was, unfortunately, spoilt by cold food... More

We have given this location several chances but they just don't get it. Almost every serving pan was empty. The service was slow and the bathroom needed considerable attention. We won't be back.

I had driven by Pi's 1000's of times but from the road, it doesn't look like much. One we walked in, we were pleasantly surprised. Great architecture! Friendly service. Nice atmosphere. Quiet. Most of the buffet selections were marked "spicy" which is not a problem for my husband who enjoys spicy foods. Since I am a bit picky, the choices... More

Came here for the buffet which was reasonably priced. Could of had some better selection of food but the food they had was decent. A proper dessert section would have bumped it up a bit.

We eat here about once a week. Unfortunately, both the service and overall quality of food is going downhill. They've had a turnover of service staff again (happened frequently over last several months) and the buffet is often not kept well stocked. It's sad since I really want to see this place succeed.

They have a decent selection of good food. You can get a side salad free with your buffet order. Service is hit and miss, usually good but not every time.

The service was very good, and the food was pretty good. I had the fried tofu vegetable. The sauce was light yet flavorful. My parents both had the buffet and liked everything. My dad especially liked the onion rings, and my mom enjoyed the shrimp.

We used to go to Pi's all the time but for quite a while now it has been going downhill, so we started going to China Palace and it was a lot better. But today we decided to give it another try. I ordered Chicken Fried Rice and my husband got Happy Family. Both were totally flavorless! I called the... More
