We often bought take-out since food fairly reliable and on our way home from work. When we arrived home one evening, with guests, one of the main items was missing. We called and said we had to make a 20 min drive back so asked for a complete refund. We were told the manager agreed. When we arrived after the... More

The noon buffet is a good deal. The food is fairly typical and tasty. Worth noting is they are diligent about keeping the food fresh. Carry out charged by the pound is good. This is a great fallback for our staff a few times every year.

If you're just looking for piles of cheap, greasy Chinese buffet food you can go almost anywhere.

My picky daughter says their cream cheese wontons are the best she's had. (I think they might make them... More

These are large family -size portions. I thought the food was really good. The restaurant is quite small, and was NOT busy at all, which kind of worries me that it might not stick around...unless we were just there on a slow night! I would order take out from here again on my way home from work! It makes for... More

This is one of my wife's and my favorite chinese restaurants. The food is excellent and more times than not, the service is pretty good. You can typically find restaurant.com coupons for this restaurant to make your bill cheaper. Usually for $4 or so you can get a $25 gift certificate. Every time we eat here, we use a restaurant.com... More

Had noon lunch the other day with a business associate. The buffet is small, but good--they kept it fresh with attentive refills.
