The overall selection was fair however most of the food was just barely warm (and I was there around 6:30pm for prime dinner time). Crab legs are not included and are an additional 6.99 per pound where as many buffets include crab legs during the dinner hours.

Eat here once a month and am always pleased with the quality and variety. The sushi is rather bland, but not everyone's cup of tea.

Stopped by for a Chinese food fix. There wasn't a big choice but a lot of the basics and lots of it and what was there was good. It wasn't small mind you but just not as big as some they had three hot bars an desert bar with a sushi and seafood

The waitstaff was nice but the food was old and tasteless. Fried rice was made with saffron instead of the soy sauce mixture.

There was a vast array of different foods. Wait staff very good. Prices reasonable. Full ice cream bar with 8 hand dipped flavors and numerous other desserts.

This buffet is pretty much your standard Chinese buffet. There is a variety of Chinese foods and desserts, along with a few American offerings for those that go along that don't like Chinese food. The food usually pretty fresh and there is plenty of parking. Great for a work lunch or a dinner when you just can't decide on one... More

Wear your big pants because you can really fill up. !!!! Food is always fresh and good, Many variety of foods. Kids food also... Ice cream for dessert. Fresh fruit. They do serve alcohol. There is a bar with seating in a quiet room. They also have a banquet room... I love to watch the TV acrobats shows for entertainment.

I should let you know that I love Chinese food and especially the buffets. I love sushi and hibachi grill as well. Having been to countless buffets, this one is pretty bad and very poor in terms of selection. Only place I have been to that is comparable is the buffet in Niagara Falls, NY (on the American side by... More

At one time this was a very good asian buffet, but seems to have sacrificed quality to maintain reasonable prices.. Nothing really exciting offered except the expected usual things. I left wondering why I ate as much as I did. Should have stuck with just a few of the items - mainly the non-deep fried or disguised shrimp offerings! Most... More
