Good soup

We eat take out frequently. Their hot and sour soup is excellent as is the fried cream cheese wonton.

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

We visited here twice during the last few weeks and it is still great. We have been coming here since they opened. We love their chicken and broccoli. Service is always fast and efficient. Would highly recommend.
