Get ready, we are not much buffet eaters, but this place is worth thrip to hollister, the food line was fresh and clean the people very enjoyable, if you are looking for all you can eat for under 8 bucks you should make the trip, and on the way down visit old downtown hollister

I have been here before and was not that great. We got here at 4:30 when the restaurant reopens and the buffet was great. Great flavor and fresh. Will definitely be back again!

This is the most disgusting place to eat. I'm asian and I've been to many Chinese restraunts. I don't know whether or not its a buffet or tasting samplers but there's barely any food. Not only that, they gave us sink water to drink.

It's a tiny little buffet style Asian food restaurant next to a Kum & Go gas station convenience store near the freeway. It's atmosphere is that of a small family run business struggling to get by with little decor. It's pricing is a little below that of the typical larger style Asian food buffets, and it has fewer dishes to... More

I was a student at College of the Ozarks and this restaurant is only a quarter mile away. It was easy just to go in and get take out anytime that I needed it. A lot of the college students work there and are good and polite about serving you. I have had both the take-out and the buffet. The... More

Great place to eat best general chicken in the area!!! They have a smaller portion which requires them to keep it fresh. They have a nice variety and make it hot and fresh.

From the outside I was expecting more of a sit-down restaurant and not a buffet.. but that is OK. Buffet is pretty inexpensive and the decor inside is very basic. The food was good and they had a few things I don't normally see. If I lived in the area, I could see eating here often for lunch. Service was... More

Although they tout themselves as "Asian Cuisine" the food appears to be your typical Chinese buffet fair. Some of the food was cool if not cold. The price was right... $6.99 per person for lunch. Don't think we would make it a point to return.

I like the convenience off Highway 65 near College of the Ozarks. Dishes are seasoned very well and the selection is a bit limited but still does the job. I like my dishes to be seasoned hot enough to make my nose run but not hot enough to burn my mouth. This place has the balance just right on certain... More

Just had the lunch buffet during a recent visit to the nearby lake area. The restaurant was clean, the service was friendly and the food on the buffet was very good. I really enjoyed the lemon chicken. We will be returning.
