A Very Popular Chinese Buffet

There are a few Chinese/Oriental restaurants in town and they are all pretty good in my opinion. This place has a very large luncheon buffet and attracts a lot of customers. The staff does a great job getting the customers fed and keeping the buffet fresh.

Every time I go I have the same experience, great food that is replenished on a very regular basis, friendly, attentive staff and lunch with a drink for under $10.

Of the 6 or so Chinese restaurants in St Albans, this is by far, the best. Food is warm, good variety, cooked just right and the service is very good. We eat here regularly as the price is also right.

Tried this restaurant twice. They have a fairly large selection of food. It seems most of the dishes have meat included. Less than average number of vegetable dishes. Nothing stood out just another place to eat if you like buffets.

I have never before seen wontons this colour nor this thick and rubbery. Wife rated the rice as "gross". Brother rated the meal as the "worst Chinese food he has ever eaten" and sister-in-law just said she would never return there for any reason. I did, to be fair, enjoy the General Tsao Chicken but I would not return nor... More

Been here 4 or 5 times and is only getting worse. On our last visit here about 6 months ago, we found 4 different hairs in our food. No lie. Informed management, we were refunded and left. This time their were no hairs but the food was still mediocre at best. My favorite dish is General Tso chicken but i... More

We have had the opportunity to dine here 2 or 3 times in the last few months and have enjoyed every visit! The food is always hot and fresh with a wide variety of choices and the prices are reasonable. Try it you'll be glad you did!

Prices are somewhat higher than most Chinese restaurants but the food is worth it. Great variety of dishes, including soups and salad. Desserts are standard. Service is very good and staff is friendly. Clean bathrooms. I have always said, a clean bathroom means a clean kitchen!
