Typical China Buffet

Good location on Hwy 17 Business and cheap lunch. Staff and owner are not friendly and act as if they are

Was more American food then Chinese. Poorly seasoned. And they add extra prices to the food if you have just one crab cluster. Was over priced for its quality

Came here for an early dinner just a little after 4pm. It had a solid variety but I'm really not sure how they claim to have "120 items" on their buffet unless they're counting each egg roll individually.

I don't know if this is authentic Chinese food, but most all the staff seem to be Chinese and the food is representative of what I have eaten at other Chinese restaurants in the south.

They have something for every taste. Everything from salads, soups, vegetables, sushi rolls, 2 kinds of shrimp, vegetable egg foo young, broiled fish, fried fish, dumplings, meats, etc, etc, etc. It is a feast of epic proportions. Wear stretchy pants because your belly will be full. Everything is clean, fresh and tasty. Wait staff is very attentive and friendly. No... More
