We ate here for a Chinese buffet, the peppers were slimy, the broccoli was yellow, the meat was undercooked and rice was burn. When I went up to the counter to politely request that we get 10% off due to not being able to eat it all the owner told me it was my fault for coming at the end... More

We had eaten here on a few occasions prior to this visit and it was mediocre but edible for a chinese buffet. The visit a few months ago, prior to this one, the food was overcooked, rubbery/chewy fried scallops and just generally a waste of time and money. But we decided to go back as that was the worst we'd... More

I am not a fan of smorgasbord and so to do a review of this restaurant will be difficult since I grew up being told if you can't say something nice... don't say anything at all... so if you like smorgasbord then this is definitely the place to eat...

I did not know that you could find such a good smorg in such a small town. The family I was visiting suggested it and I was sort of scepticle BUT was pleasantly surprised. I would suggest anyone who has time while driving thru, to stop and enjoy the food.

Good variety - Salad bar could use some work but generally good food. Hours are inconsistent at times.
