This is a restaurant that was very good but not anymore

This place used to be menu only ordering. I found most all of the food to be very good. Then they changed over to buffet style with optional menu ordering. The buffet food is not that great and it is always the same day after day. It has become old and stale because they don't change the choices. I... read more

This is a buffet 'all-you-can-eat' restaurant in central Henderson. It is fairly diverse and includes a long refrigerated table with sushi, as well as 3 long heated tables with multiple dishes, perhaps 40-50 in total, and tables of desserts. The variety is very good, including a number of seafood dishes and even bullfrog legs. Unfortunately, the food isnt very good.... More

We each had a coupon for all you can eat crab legs. The waitress was upset that we kept going back for more legs but we weren't eating anything else on the buffet. We tried to explain that the rest of the food on their buffet was not hot but stone cold. After our 4th trip up the manager came... More

Just find somewhere else to eat. The buffet has been cold every time I've eaten there. Not just a little cold, STONE cold. The wait staff are usually rude and lazy and once they seat you never return. The take-out is hideous. Don't think you'll get a normal type of food, the sesame chicken came as a soupy onion mixture... More

Asian all you can eat for about $10 per adult. Very good food, good variety, love the hot and sour soup. The only criticism is sometimes the food on the bar runs out. They have scoop ice cream for desert. They have a sochi bar but we don't do raw seafood. The wife and I go about once a month... More

Do you like sushi, frog legs or the customary Chinese food. It's your choice and it's all good. Ample seating with no waiting. I like it.

The vegetarian options suck. The string beans were dry and limpy. Tofu was overfried. Never going back

I was passing through the area, and since I'm on a special diet following oral surgery, wanted to find a Chinese restaurant for some egg drop soup. I saw the sign for the Bamboo Garden on the interstate, so I took the exit and found the restaurant. The location is in an old shopping center, and the actual restaurant appearance... More

We saw that this place received many awards for best Chinese food in Henderson and decided to give it a try. We were pretty disappointed... The fried rice was hard, there was way too much soy sauce, and everything seemed overly greasy. If you are willing to drive, there are better Chinese restaurants in nearby towns.

If you visit at peak dining hours, the food is mostly plentiful and at least warm. If you visit any other time you take your chances. We go quite often. Tonight there was no salad, the shrimp were cold, the wings were clearly refried and I believe they would have shattered if dropped. The beef and broccoli was less than... More
