I have been to many chinese buffets and this place was disgusting! No variety and everything was so old and bad tasting. I felt ill by the time I was done trying to get at least a few of the items down my throat. No one at my table could find one item they could enjoy not even dessert. I... More

This was our third visit and oh my goodness, they slid so far downhill, there's no coming back. Where to start? My husband loves oysters; they had them on ice, so we thought they would be good. They were spoiled and even after telling them, they wouldn't remove them from the buffet. The food was little better than tepid; some... More

The buffet is fantastic. There must be 30 choices on it. The food is hat and very good. The service is great also. We went right at lunch time and there was always hot food in all the trays. For about $8.00 it can not be beat.

I usually don't expect too much from buffet style restaurants but was surprised by this one. They had seafood, steak, fish, pork, sushi, and it was great. In fact I went back one more time before I headed home.

Where's the manager! All the food that was supposed to be hot was barely lukewarm. The sushi made my wife queezy. There was no butter for the seafood and no duck sauce. A lot of the food was mislabeled or not labeled at all. The price would have been fair if the food was good but $16 for such poor... More

I went there for the first time this week. I could not believe how many selections they had on the buffet and how good the food was. The place is large and very clean and the service was very good. You have to try this restaurant you will not believe the selection on the buffet for $7.95 !!!

If you get there early everything is hot and fresh. They open at 11AM. The selection is way better than most Chinese buffets. Week days its only $8 for lunch. They feature a sushi bar, fresh salad bar, and a dessert station with an ice cream machine. They offer other food items too like pizza and mac and cheese. It... More
