A little over priced. Food seems to sit to long. Not much in service. Fairly clean there are better choices in the area.

Overall it is very good, some times better than others. I have never had old cold food , yes sometimes they run low on certain things but if you just ask they bring it right out, remember the people before you may have loaded up their plate with crab legs , don't cry there is enough for everyone. For the... More

I have eaten here many times. There are a few other Chinese food places in the area and this is one of the better ones. Food is good and fresh. The Mongolian Grill is delicious. Sushi good as well. Lots of seating and large parking lot. Clean. They also do take out which is quick and delicious.

We arrived at the peak of the lunch hour and all of the servers were constantly being replenished. The food was fresh, well prepared... More

We came here for dinner for my son's 6th bday. $68 later for a family of 6 I couldn't believe how disgusting this was! The food is old/cold, they barely refill the trays. They are so stingy & cheap with the crab legs they put just enough in...so pathetic. We will NEVER go there again!

The buffet had so much to choose from, even for my kids. I especially loved the cheesy wontons, they are delicious!! The staff was very friendly and was all smiles. This has also got to be one of the cleanest restaurants I've been to. I kept seeing the staff either sweeping the floors, or wiping down the counters myself. The... More

an assortment of 20 dishes including several shrimp dishes, fish, crab legs. A number of typical and atypical appetizers, soups, and sushi. Was there about 8pm, sushi was picked over. A separate grill area and desert area. Ice milk machine. Price value is major strong point. Be hungry when you go, food is ok to good.
