Well usually whenever I go to a Buffet, I tend to get food poisoning or don't feel good afterwards.. This place seems always flowing with people and with that the food keeps getting replaced. Wife and I love Chinese food and this place does not disappoint us.. I would remove 1/2 star for the greeter for lack of smiling but... More

The restaurant was clean and well maintained, and the food on the buffet was nicely presented, fresh, and appropriately replaced as needed.It was very tasty, and well seasoned.There were... More

We certainly got our fill at this China Buffet. It was clean and the food was kept full and plentiful. The staff was excellent to clear our used plates as soon as we were done and ready for more!!! My only drawback was we should have gone before they changed prices. Next time, and we WILL go again we will... More

Happened upon this place on spur of moment ... was filled with people largely Asian, which is a good sign! There were many items to choose from and the price was under $10 ... amazing!

Food is great. Great selection. It's really not bad if you don't mind sitting next to Bubba and his coworkers or Jose and his ENTIRE family.

Poor selection, food is bland, of poor quality. The chicken didn't taste like chicken. No fried rice or vegetarian options.

tyoically chinese buffet restaurants are either overpriced or poorly managed. This one however is reasonable, the buffet is maintained and cared for and the service is consistent and friendly. I tried most of the chicken items, two kinds of shrimp and some delicious vegetables- this restaurant figured out how to maintain a full buffet.....and keep it hot!

This pretty typical Chinese buffet fare. They claim 120 items on the buffet. What makes this place different is a friendly staff and an incredibly low price. Lots of obvious local people were having lunch there when we visited.
