average buffet

A large assortment on the buffet, but the food is average. My grandma loves it so we meet there yearly. It is always busy.

I hadn't been to the Great Moon for many years, so we thought we'd give it a shot last weekend. It was a huge disappointment..... I don't have super high expectations for chinese buffets, but this was really quite awful. The food offered was subpar and most dishes barely had anything in them besides vegetables. It was in the midst... More

nice selection and choices, but the service was lacking and the price was on the higher side it was close to the restaurant that I was remodeling and I couldn't find another one anywhere near so this is where we went.

Been to the great moon numerous times, a great variety of different food, something for everyone, I love the chicken wings, here's my issue although the food is pretty good for a buffet what bothers me are all the hands touching the utensils and intimately the food, the other issue is the help that should be trained to properly clean...

I feel like this buffet has gone down Becuz the service is bad when u come in and the line is always long. I think this is the closet asian buffet around so everyone just come but honestly, the service is degrading. The food is alright. Nothing special much anymore.

The food is always good at the Great Moon and there is usually a wide variety dishes to sample. If something you like is not at the buffet, just ask and they will likely prepare some. The sushi bar is not always the freshest, but still mostly edible. If you are really hungry its a good place to stop.

This buffet is over priced, but does have large selection. You can go to a nice sit down restaurant for the same price, but if you like to eat until your hearts content-then you'll love it! The food is ok- but be careful if you cannot have MSG!
