I loved this place. Food was hot, and fresh. I ate too much, which happens at a Buffet. I would go back that is for sure.

My father was dying of cancer and is now passed but while he was very sick he could only eat soup. We went in 3 times a week for their egg drop soup because it was all he could eat. The desk people were always rude and didn't want to help us. They went so far as to comment about... More

We had dinner here as a group of 6, 3 adults, 3 kids under 4 years old. The waitress was very sweet and made sure to keep the table as clear of dishes as possible. The food was really good, I like the variety of Chinese food they had to offer. Everything tasted fresh and the price was very reasonable.

This place was great. There were 12 of us and they arranged a section so we could all sit together. The waitress kept drinks filled and empty dishes cleaned from the tables. The food was fresh and the variety was great. We plan to return next year.

Went there with low expectations and was pleasingly surprised. Lots of choices and really pretty decent for a buffet. The honey chicken was outstanding, as were the stuffed mushrooms.

Listen, this Chinese buffet is like 1000's of others, basic dishes, none of which stands out. Food just brought out is hot and worth a taste, but when busy hard to keep up with empty bins. Other food doesn't hold temperature. Dinner is currently $10.39. drinks extra. the service average, selection average, cleanliness average. Some people love it, some hate... More

Been here many times over the years and have always found this Chinese buffet very nice. There is an excellent assortment of dishes, and also includes salads and desserts. Value is excellent and I found the service good also. I always look forward to going back when I'm in the United States.
