Crab Legs - it's a matter of timing

Very wide variety of good things. I saw that there were Snow Crab legs listed the night I visited. I saw a large tray for them but rarely saw any while I was there. Initially there were a few, but then none for the longest time. But there was enough other things to move on to. They had a... read more

We ate dinner at this large restaurant and enjoyed an amazing variety of seafood dishes as well as the usual Chinese dishes. If ever in this area would choose to eat here again.

We live in Berwick but frequently make the drive to Hazleton for this special buffet. There is a huge variety of food including American food, fresh fruit, hibachi, sushi and all the standard Chinese food. While it isn't the best Chinese I've ever had it's some of the best for a buffet and for this area. I can't complain about... More

The staff are as friendly as anywhere. The food is hot and tastey. Not just Chinese food but American and Sushi. The various rows of food are filled and steaming. I had come before and didnt like it, gave it a second chance and enjoyed myself. Pretty busy as well!! Just be aware that due to the language barrier you... More

Yes it was only lunch and yes it was 8.95 for the buffet but well worth it. Great selection that included pork loins as well as many kinds of seafood. Loved the baby clams with hot butter. Service was good. Large selection for sure. Something for everyone

I honestly would never say something bad unless an establishment is just repylsive. I found big white maggots in the chicken and broccoli this was over a year ago but I will never set foot in this place. Once is enough. I took the food as takeout and I called the resteraunt and they said that it must have been... More

LOVED THIS BUFFET. I really enjoyed this eatery. Food was plentiful and was brought out quickly. Service was good and they didn't stand over you when you was eating. Food was very well prepared and I will be returning if I'm in that area again.

We stopped in on a Sunday for lunch. The place was busy & the food was fresh. They have a Sushi bar & a Hibachi bar that's included in the buffet. This was one of our favorite places to go for Chinese food but the quality of the food just isn't there anymore. The meat on the hibachi bar was... More

All you can eat with vast selection. Not just chinese food, but sushi as well. Try the hibachi grill. Staff super fast at clearing away empty dishes for you to enjoy yourself a new course. Fruits, seafood, chicken, ribs, pizza and much more. There is something for everyone here.
