Stay away, after we ate we went to pay and saw roaches on the food. We told the staff, they killed the roaches and left the food in place....disgusting!!!

I have lived in Laredo for 14 years & can count on 1 hand the number of times I have been in this place. Last time was 2 years ago, after the owner rebuilt the place after a fire destroyed it. I had hoped the rebuilt place would be an improvement, but sadly it is not. Horrible food, horrible reputation.... More

Went there with my meat lover husband, he ate everything but the table. Theres a “make your own pasta” table, you choose toppings and they prepare it in minutes. eat like a pig for 13 dlls per person!

We ate here twice on our trip. the first night was very good and the second night was really second rate. The odd thing is that we ordered the same dish and at the same time of night! I would not go back to this restaurant again. The mark of a good restaurant is consistency and this seems to be... More

Have dined here on two different occasions and it's awesome. It's a notch above 90% of any other Chinese buffet you'll eat anywhere. The service is first class and very professional. The atmosphere is awesome. The variety is very good but the quality is first class. The owner is hands on and very nice and personable. I give em 4... More

Food and service was okay; however, when I advised the lady server that there were bugs in the salt, she picked up the salt from a near by table and gave it to me. Which was alright except she then replaced the salt on that table with the "bug" salt. She also reset a table using napkins that had been... More

Best Chinese buffet in Laredo. Good variety, reasonable prices, good service. They will cook anything on the menu if you don't want the buffet. Buffet includes appetizers, soup, dessert, and sushi. This is not a "gourmet" restaurant, but everything is tasty and well worth the price.
