Awful! The buffet is poorly kept. Often items are dried to the pans where it has been sitting for so long. Items are not fresh at all.

Horrible food horrible service place is very unclean. Used to go all the time when it first open..but it's gotten pretty bad over the years. We were seated by the area designated for dirty dishes. So we got to enjoy the cleansing of dishes in our ears and our visual during our meal. The food is old and hard and... More

Where do I start? The greasy/ slippery floor that ALL of our party commented about is a good start. The food it's self was very unimaginative and 80% based on chicken (cost prevention one assumes) One pork and two beef options only. The labels were misplaced and announcing things that were not even there. You basically didn't know what half... More

To say that it was the worst is being far too nice. I have had Asian food from north to south, and on both coasts. This was the worst.

I just moved to Columbia and have had Chinese food in Clarksville and in a ton of other states and country and this was one of the worst. They don't have many of the items I was looking for including general tso's which is a very popular dish. The food was ice cold and the egg rolls{fresh off the bar... More

Stopped in for lunch and was told by others not to go but my friend wanted to give it a try. All the food looked and tasted like it was from the night before (which I bet it was). Overall it was nasty and we didn't even eat that much. Our server was not that nice and didn't even fill... More

This was our first visit and last. Food was old and it was the right when the price went up for dinner time. Management and staff did not seem to care we were so disappointed. Only gave 20% of total bill for the 4 of us. I guess they figured we wouldn't be back, so why should they try to... More

Some of the food was cold and uncooked..raw the management did nothing and just said if you dont't like the food don't come back. There health food score was an 86, and how do you stay in business when you don't care what you are serving to people, this establishment is a disgrace
