This place is our go to place for Chinese food. The restaurant itself is pretty clean, most of the wait staff is fairly nice save for a few times we've gone and had less than stellar service (slow to refill drinks and grab empty plates), also the hostess sometimes isn't the nicest and sometimes seems to have an attitude problem....

The buffet has a lot of options and for the most part I was very pleased. Of course if you come during the not so busy hours, items on the buffet aren't as fresh. The restaurant is clean and spacious though. Also the price is reasonable. Just about $10 a person, for lunch anyways. If you like Chinese, you'll be... More

Restaurant is located next to the hotel we were staying in. We expected a sit down Chinese restaurant but were surprised to be offered a buffet or full menu. We opted of the buffet and were very pleased. Nice variety of food. The only complaint that I had was no wonton soup. I've come to assume that is a staple... More

I ordered the Vegetable bean curd (tofu) soup and was somewhat disappointed. The flavor was good but it had very little vegetables even though it is called "Vegetable Soup". Tofu is very inexpensive to buy then vegetables so that is why I think it was full of tofu. I was hoping for half and half. Service was good even though... More

One of our students wanted to have Chinese food. This was a good place for the students, but I personally do not like buffet style eating. Food was OK. Place seemed clean. Price OK.

My family and I enjoyed eating there on countless occassions but not anymore. I witnessed one of the female cooks walk out of the bathroom stall with her apron still on and did not wash her hands and walked out the door. She held the door open for me and I stood there in disbelief for a moment. I went... More

Love oriental food and this was great. None of the buffet food was dried out as I often find at a Chinese restaurant.

Stayed over nite at the Best Western next door. Got a good look at the buffet. Wish I had eaten in the restaurant. Had standard fare. Chicken and Broccoli. Brown rice and Spring Rolls. Really enjoyed the takeout. Will eat in on a return trip in two weeks.

It was so wonderful I still find myself hungry for the food there. There is so much to choose from and each dish is so delicious! You will not be sorry. I am a Chinese food connoisseur and its the best i have EVER had. Seriously!!!
