I really like eating here, my food is always hot and they make anything for you they don't already have on the bar. The only negative is we have been a few times when the waitresses get our drinks mixed up with another tables ... Gross...

I don't know how they can offer buffet sushi, crab legs and anything else you'd want for under $10 at dinner and even less at lunch, but they do. The service can be quite rude sometimes, but it's not enough to drop them to 4 stars.

We've been dining at this family operated restaurant since they first opened in 2002. The food is consistently good.

Good service pricing good on the other hand the grill cook has a habit of making you wait for no apparent reason before he cooks your food. On a prior visit I was told to come back in 15 minutes because he was going to eat his lunch. Who in the restaurant business eats lunch during the lunch rush. I... More

This Chinese restaurant goes above and beyond with their selection of food on the buffet. The seafood is simply out of this world. It's a very busy place any day of the week because people love coming there. They have a great family atmosphere and very welcoming staff. You will never be disappointed when you go in there to eat.... More
