this looks like a nice place - I got pot stickers to go and sauce was good but never had them fried before... prefer steamed quite frankly...

We frequent this restaurant several times a month, every month. Service is outstanding and we only go to this Chinese restaurant anymore. We love the BBQ pork appetizer, pork fried rice, and the poo poo platter. Best items are ala carte.

It's nice to eat in a small town and not only have good food but service too. I've been here 3-4 times and each time the food was very tasty. The wait staff even remembered that I like iced tea with lots of ice. The tea is good and doesn't taste like coffee. Everyone has a different taste for Chinese... More

The title tells all. Its only good for conveniences sake. Everything tastes kind of the same. I used to come here solely for the nice staff, but I hear management treated them badly, and they've been replaced some years ago. I get no real pleasure out of coming here, besides the company. However, all my friends love it, so maybe... More

Outstanding food. Arrived after the buffet closed so ordered rice, orange chicken and shrimp w/ broccoli. Lots of food! We know Chinese food and this was great. Don't miss it.

While the place was clean enough, and the service was very nice, the food was horrible. Based upon the earlier reviews I thought we would give it a try. The meat was mushy so there was a heavy use of MSG to the meat. The sauce was nothing more than soy sauce and cornstarch and was flavorless, the fried rice... More

Fairly typical Chinese food for dinner. The dishes were good but not great. Probably will try a different restaurant when next in the area.

This is one of the nicest places to eat and if you can get in between the hours of 11-2pm you can pick out your own lunch. Wonderful great tasting food. You can still order off the menu but why would you? The choices you have on the Buffy are wonderful!!

I went to lunch here with my husband. The service is prompt, the food is very good. As for Dale, at first he seemed intelligent by his post but to think the fortunes (that are supposedly the opinion of the owners/workers) are put in the cookies here and sealed??? Whatever Dale. I had a positive experience here and will return.

The food is too salty, greasy, too much MSG, and the employees are rude and often make fun of the customers. I understand Chinese and know what they are saying. They do not like to serve black people. I have seen them treat black people bad. They put saying in the fortune cookie that resemble their opinions of you.
