Decent chinese buffet for Lenoir City

I eat here a couple times a month, it's consistently decent. The place is relatively clean and the dishes are good. They do change it up every once in a while with something different.

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.
