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.

Decided to stop here foe dinner on a whim. Should have ignored my whim instinct. This is quite possibly one of the worst buffets we have ever been to! Tasteless, overcooked food. They call themselves a Chinese buffet......seemed like there was more Mexican and American food. We avoided the raw seafood and so-called sashimi. Service was OK, but then it's... More

The decorations are nice. We always order shrimp dishes, but their sweet sour shrimp is almost all breading and no shrimp! The rest of the food is average.

When traveling through the valley, I have many options for lunch. I keep going back here because they are consistent! The food is always hot, fresh, and tasty. I've been to 30 or so chinese buffets and this one ranks in the top 3! Nice job great china!
