Having lived in Hong Kong i would say by those standards the food was fair, but here in Murphy, NC it is very good. Huge selection of Chinese and American food with a large salad bar. Staff is very polite and attentive, $7.50 for all you can eat you can't go wrong. My wife and I visit every several weeks... More

Went with friends. There is a salad bar, a Chinese food bar, an American food bar, a desert bar. In each bar were many choices. I tried general tsaos, teriyaki chicken, beef and vegetables. Everything was tasty. Not the best Chinese food I've ever had, but good and satisfying. All you can eat. $7.50 per adult.

We have been here about 5 or 6 times before and the food was just "okay".....but 2 nights ago was our last visit!!! Food was "OLD & COLD"...looked and tasted terrible. Most items were empty and when the kitchen staff member did restock (he was more focused on his cell phone) it looked just as old. Do yourself a favor... More

About like your average Chinese buffet but also had a good selection of American food. Kept the food well stocked and while not outstanding, was ok and would return.

the buffet has many options, but the 'american' side was not very good. cant expect a chinese restaurant to have excellent american food, we just didnt have much of a choice because the chinese side of the buffet was almost empty. not sure we'll be back

I love the the fact that they have both American and Asian food. The service was great and the decor was very nice.

Great food! There was a large variety of food - American and Chinese. We went for lunch and there was one buffet section not in use. Missing white rice. The deserts were good. There was an American salad bar, fried chicken, mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese, and lots of other items. Felt more like an American buffet with Chinese as... More

The food was OK, but not totally Chinese food. Was disappointed to find one of the three island of food contained all American food like pot roast, mashed potatoes, etc. Another island was for salad fixins, dessert, cold items and only one island/steam table contained Chinese food. Food was tasty but nothing to "write home about". Probably would not go... More
