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.

We were staying at the La Quinta in Ely and decided to eat here because it was very close and the reviews were so good. It was excellent! I ordered the lemon chicken and my husband ordered the happy family. What was so nice was they put each on a platter and gave us empty plates so we were able... More

We tried a couple of different places and settled here reluctantly, since we have not had good experience with this type of pseudo-Chinese restaurants. They tend to put a lot of oyster sauce and a lot of greasy oil in the dish. Plus, they tend to be salty and bad. This is exceptional. Even though the menu choice is limited,... More

Straightforward “Ma & Pa” Chinese restaurant. We just wanted take out and it was very good, large portions of tasty food produced quickly with a smile. What more could one ask? The restaurant itself was half full of what looked like locals at 6:30 on a Tuesday evening, so they obviously have a regular clientele.
