Place is looking run down and if they want to keep their party business they should update. Bathrooms also are gross.

Nothing special, but a million times better food tha the one in Central Islip and the one in Deer Park. Try the dish called the Triple Crown!

No reservations needed, plenty of seating, plenty of fresh delicious food to pick from, even the picky eaters were happy. Reasonable price & wait staff was on their game 👍. Will definitely do this again!

This used to be a great place to go. We went here the other day and the place was dirty, and the food seemed old, sad to see this place go down. We would not go there again.

Very busy Chinese buffet. Average price ( Watch out; the tip is included.) Many choices, food is always fresh as it can be( for a buffet )They also have a small sushi station. We go there at least once a month and are never disappointed.

The buffet offers a wide variety of delicious choices. The price includes the drinks and deserts, where as the're buffets out there that you have to pay for the drinks and deserts separately! If you go during dinner time, and you like Crab legs 50% of the time they are out, and you have to wait till they put out... More

I am not a huge eater so buffets don't hold the appeal to me that they do to some, but after visiting this restaurant several times with chow hound friends. It's a great value. Sushi, tons of shrimp dishes, ribs, and lots of choice for kids. The staff is quick and engaging despite the fact that I didn't see big... More

My husband & I did make a second visit to this establishment. With eyes wide open it became clear that the restaurant areas like the front desk/entrance was a mess. The rest room area was laden with linens on the floor outside the entrance. This was enough to turn me off and I wll not be returning to dine here... More

When you walk in the confusing front door you are confronted with not the most friendly people. Now we went for dinner and it was close to fifteen dollars per person. What a joke. The food was old and the selection was dismal. I saw people taking food out the trays with there hands!! There was a commercial radio station... More
