Good food, great service

For us this would fall among the average, everyday Chinese Buffets. Not great, not bad...just the same ole Chinese Buffet fair. Pricing is good and service was great. Will say the restaurant was very busy and full of people. That alone says a lot. We left full and satisfied.

This place keeps it real simple with only 2 Buffett stations and nothing but the good stuff . Other places overwhelm you with choices of stale cold food but not here. Trays are constantly changed and the service is down right spectacular. I recommend the wings and crab which were my favorite. Price is decent at just over 20.00 for... More

Our friends met us at this restaurant. They often eat there but we hadn't tried it yet. We were very surprised at the quality of the items. The fried calamari was fantastic.

Having dinned in countless Chinese Establishments throughout the country as well as overseas I have to say I was a bit disappointed or shall I say my taste buds were. While Chinese food varies from location to location they seemed to be way off from normal. The parking lot was full and plenty of folks dining. Perhaps my taste buds... More

Positives: great attentative staff, food is fresh and tasty. What I love the most about this place is that they always have grilled short ribs and chicken breast displayed on top of a bed of grilled onions and peppers... Chicken is delicious. Negative: their salad selection is lacking to say the least.

The buffet is ok but not great. We haven't ordered from the menu but we aren't given the choice either. They just tell us to go to the buffet. It's ok but doesn't seem to be clean or well kept any longer.

I travel the country and always try to find good Chinese buffets. I am successful most of the time. This buffet was below average. What was good? The skewered shrimp were great; they hadn't been waiting for me and were hot and fresh. The spring rolls were delicious. The chicken soup was full of good, cooked cabbage. Grilled tilapia with...

They have sushi which I just love. I like the selection. It is a buffet and I like this place better than any other in the area.
