Nice for take out too

Haven't actually dined-in at this restaurant but have gotten buffet to go several times. Food is always hot and fresh. Tasty, your typical Americanized Chinese food but at a good value. Highly recommend for nights your family chef is on strike.

The ONLY reason I want to go back here is they have a shrimp dish with a sauce on it that I've only been able to find in one other restaurant, and that was when I lived in California. Otherwise, it's not much of a restaurant to really make an appointment to visit. If you have a large party that... More

This is our go to place after returning home from a trip where convenience takes precedence over taste. We order from the take-out menu a half dozen times per year, always find our food order correctly filled when we arrive to pick it up 15 minutes after calling, and always find the food quality about the same as a cafeteria....

Good selection of food, always hot and tasty! The only improvement I can think of would be the addition of sushi. Wish I lived closer to this restaurant, will eat here again! The egg foo yung and all soups are scrumptious!

This place has a super buffet. It has more items than are easily counted and the flavors are excellent. When the hot & sour soup, egg and spring rolls are excellent you can pretty much expect the rest of the buffet to be very good. Very nice décor and the place is squeaky clean.

I came to eat here today, which was the day of an expected major ice event in Roanoke. I pretty much had the place to myself...me and 2 other tables of 2. On top of that, it was nearly 2 PM, after prime lunch time. I was expecting old, cold, and not too good food...but I just wanted Chinese so... More

Food - warm and unflavorful, place was slow and we had to tell servers that items were out. when refilled they were still not hot. Server - simple and refilled sodas, but thats about all Location - in the end of a strip mall next to Tanglewood mall and right off 220, so its convenient. Wouldnt go back.
