The buffet is small but they manage to have lots of choices. Would like to have had another one or two choices that weren't deep fried. Food was tasty, they were attentive to making sure the buffet stayed full. The restaurant itself could use some cosmetic work, bathroom door in the ladies room was pretty beat up. A good carpet...

Ate at this buffet in a small strip mall in Delmar. The range of items was small and relatively unexciting. In fact, somewhat pedestrian. Due to the fact that the buffet was certainly small I would say eat here only if your really hard pressed for another choice.

We have eaten at this Chinese Buffet several times. We find ourselves going back primarily because the price is right, the staff is friendly and attentive and the food is very good. The restaurant including the lady's room is very clean. The items on the buffet change every day though some items are staples. It's a nice place to go... More

The buffet is a great deal. Inexpensive and a wide range of offerings to choose from. Not the best Chinese food, but if looking for a little bit of many choices, this is the buffet. No brown rice though.
