I've been there once only. Compare to other Asian buffets in town, this one is the worst. It doesnt look clean. Food looks disgusting. Everything seems to be fried, which makes me believe the food isn't actually fresh. The only things I ate was a very small amout of rice with some sauted vegetables. We were charged around 20 USD...

We were staying at the Hampton Inn across the street and after driving all day we just decided to walk across the street. A little better than the average Chinese Buffet. The hot and sour soup was very good. Actual chicken pieces and very good flavor. The rest of the buffet was also pretty good. We were in the mood... More

Would have enjoyed a glass of wine with dinner. Otherwise, nice and spacious restaurant in convenient location.

My husband and I ate here while staying at the Hampton Inn. We were tired after a long day of driving and it was convenient -- right across the street. The buffet has lots of options and is your typical Chinese buffett -- offering traditional and some non traditional dishes. The staff was friendly and we both over ate from... More

After a long day on the road, we decided to avail ourselves the take-out feature of this buffet-style restaurant. I walked over from our hotel room and ordered from the menu. The counter staff was most pleasant and efficient. I waited in the lobby for the order to be completed and the food was brought out to me. They made... More

If you've been to one Chinese Buffet, you've probably been to them all. This one was mediocre at best. The sushi rolls weren't terrible, but avoid the hibachi at all costs. It was truly awful.

Took dinner here one evening and the restaurant was not busy. Service was good but it is a serve-yourself arrangement. Variety of meal items fair and on a scale of 1 to 10 (poor to remarkable, possibly 5.6). Example: Pudding dessert was from a can.... NOTE: Average rating is not a "bad" rating, it means just that "average".

My husband and I like to eat at Chinese buffet restaurants, and do so frequently. This was a very enjoyable p(a)lace. (I was trying for a pun but not sure how it worked.) Anyway, it was a very good place to eat. I found several unusual dishes here that I had not eaten at other similar venues. When I tried... More

My family and I went to this place for a second time in as many years. The facility was very clean and they offer the usual variety of Asian food. There was something for each of us and we had a good experience. On this visit, our waiter was exceptional. This is not the cheapest place in town, but we... More
