So-so

The buffet is okay, some entrees are kept fresh but others are not on the buffet line. They do offer alacarte menu but it is pricey. Overall for the prices and service I wouldn't recommend eating here again. Not overly impressed.

If this is Chinese food I'm Chinese then. No all means this food is as far of Chinese food as anybody can get. They just don't use ginger, a fundamental ingredient in this food is missing in most of their dishes, if not all. It was the only choice for a while, but now with the emergence of some Asian...

If you like Chinese food, this is the only place you can actually get a nice variety of Chinese dishes in one place. They have a buffet, but you are better off ordering a la cart. Warning: never order something on the buffet a la cart or they will just grab it off the buffet and plate it. Order something... More

The food from the buffet is not that good. Order from the menu, it is much better. I ordered the fried dumplings, the hot and sour soup which was Ok. The mushi pork was good and the plum sauce was good too.

Even though the restaurant opens at !!:30 a.m., the hostess let me in at 11:00. I had to wait until everything was set. There are not so many choiches, but the ones available were good to me. There were 3 or 4 suchi rolls, fried and steamed rice, sesame chicken among others. It also has a small Mongolian bar. The... More

I had the lunch buffet. It was not the largest selection, but had what I was looking for. The crab Rangoon was good, but didn't care for the broccoli beef. Only two types of sushi.
