Better than average for a buffet

This place is busy. There are 2 Chinese buffets within about a mile of each other, and this is definitely the better of the 2. The buffet is well organized. There is a very large variety on the tables. Such as General Sao's chicken OR shrimp, several beef dishes, fresh cooked fish dishes... read more

However they have really increased their prices and find them a too high to go as often as I have in the... More

We visit this buffet each year when we return to RI for the summer. The food is good, fresh & plenty of it with a great selection. We have limited Chinese food near our home in FL so really like this place where we can overdo on it.

We expected more quality food for the rating it received on Yelp as well as having been listed as one of the best buffets around! Unfortunately, it had a lot of food, but most were chicken or rice items. Very disappointing the steamed crab legs were not being served but instead some seafood sautee. Also, they listed mei fun on... More

My first visit. Food is a hit and miss. Some dishes are okay, but anything that is fried, is way over fried, that it became too hard to bite through. I was not impressed. Loads with msg too. I was thirsty the whole afternoon and night. I won't recommend this place.

I had a lunch meeting here. I was so happy when I saw vegetable choices (spinach with garlic sauce, broccoli,). The baby steamers in garlic sauce, lettuce wraps, nim chow, sushi, etc. was great as well and everything else you can think of looked appetizing. They were also putting out fresh dishes and replenishing all the time. I love the... More
