I knew this place many years ago when i lived in minnesota and it opened in the eagan area. back then it was clean, well serviced, and the food was actually warm! now it is hard enough to get anyone to attend to you as you walk in. the initial seating area is more of an ad-hoc warehouse with boxes...

Im not kidding that place sucks. I recommend having a death wish before touching that place with a ten foot pole. Atmosphere was dark and cold. Food tasted funny and was lukewarm at best. Unless you like eating plastic food STAY AWAY. We informed the manager and he could see we had only taken a few bites but still was... More

The food was terrible! I felt sick afterwards and they charged us $12 a person. :( if you want to lose weight and never want to eat again then go there. I love Chinese food and well, who knows if I will ever eat it again. They ruined date night for us.

I've seen the bad reviews, but it's in my neighborhood and I had a coupon so I figured how bad could it be? As we were seated, the hostess/owner asked us what we wanted to drink. Nowhere in the ads nor the menu did it say that drinks with the buffet were extra, so we ordered our soft drinks. The... More

We ate here a good few years ago and I remember it was bad-the food was sitting there for a while and I wasn't impressed. We returned for dinner as we had a coupon and thought if they're still in business, they must have improved or maybe last time was a fluke. Nope, worse than last time. At least half... More

It was my last time in this buffet. By the way, ther were no other customers on Suturday at 5 pm, when other places are... More

Went Memorial Day evening. Should have taken the clue when there were only two other patrons. Had our plates started when we realized that there was very little on the buffet. Everything dried out from sitting there for hours. We took the last of the fried won tons; one each. Not even any rice on the buffet! At a Chinese... More

The good, its pretty cheap. Tastes good. Not so good: If you don't go there during peak times, the food is dry and not fresh. Just like anyplace else I guess.
