Very decent

Coming from a big city where buffets tend to be more pricy, this was a good value, especially for the weekend pricing. It was packed, so I assume the locals agree. Being packed didn't affect the substance of serving lines too much with one exception. The snow crab legs were constantly in short... read more

We haven't been there since right after it opened several years ago. At that time we thought the food was mediocre. We decided to give it another try after a relative said it was pretty good now. Our experience was much worse than the first time. Everything we got from the buffet was either lukewarm or cold. The General Tso's... More

Everything is swimming in oil, tasteless and fairly disgusting. There were ceiling tiles falling down and a large bucket of dirty water in the aisle, presumably to clean with? We vowed never to go back. Plus has anyone heard the gopher meat story about this place.

Best food here is the hibachi grill because food will be hot unlike the rest of the food most visits. Not bad food but the closest to us....recommend the buffet next to bass pro!

Arrived on a Thursday evening and several employees walked by the crowd waiting at the front door without even a greeting. Even the cashier that wasn't in the process of cashing anyone out didn't take two seconds to let the line of 10 people waiting to be seated that someone would be with us momentarily. The place is not very... More

It was our first date along with both of our parents, and the food was great. It was Mothers Day so the restaurant was very full, and therefore it was fairly noisy and not the best atmosphere for a first date but the like I said was super. I tried the grill and their sushi the grill was excellent and... More

A great variety, clean, and fast service. I liked the hibachi where you pick your own meat and vegetables to be grilled. The steak is good.

This is an excellent buffet. The staff is always refilling the food trays and the food is always hot and fresh. They have numerous chicken entrees (gen chaos, sesame, Hawaiian, peanut butter), beef with broccoli, mushrooms, green beans, mixed vegetables, white and fried rice, soups, etc. They also have a nice salad/fruit/dessert bar as well as American foods (pizza, fries,...

Large buffet with many tables, (keep moving your neck-turn around so you do not miss them all). A cavernous building that can accommodate a large crowd, such as the day we were there, and yet, you will not feel crowded. The Cheese Spinach was incredible, as was their shrimp and the General Tso’s Chicken. I even liked their cheese pizza.... More

I don't know that this is an overall very good restaurant, but certainly for a chinese buffet. You've got your average assortment of fried dishes and bland looking american food like pizza and tacos. There is a sushi bar and hibachi grill toward the back as well as a "scoop yourself" ice cream station. Our disappointment comes from the steadily... More
