Delicious Buffet

There were many selections to choose from on the hot buffet line. Many Chinese meat dishes including chicken, beef, and pork. The vegetables were cooked just right and again there was a wide selection. Many dessert selections rounded out our evening. The wait staff was friendly and helpful.

We arrived just prior to closing but were welcomed inside. The buffet had closed so we ordered from the menu. We got complimentary crab legs (probably from the buffet) and the food was very good and the portions large. The service couldn't have been better.

The Red Palace has an extensive Chinese Buffet. The food was very nicely pesented and was constantly being replenished. You can't go wrong eating here and it was a short walk from the Best Western Hotel we stayed at.

What can you say about a Chinese buffet? We were staying at the motel across the street and needed a quick choice for a meal. We didn't know it was buffet only until we were seated and were a bit disappointed by not having a menu choice. But we stayed. The place is very new & clean and the staff... More

This place has a good variety for a fair price. The service was excellent, and friendly. The food was hot and fresh at all times. There's a little something for everyone. Overall a good buffet.

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

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
