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.

We ate here after arriving at our hotel. We were never given a menu or asked if we wanted one and after getting a drink order the waiter showed us the buffet. Things that were fresh (crab rangoon) were flavorful. Things that had been out for a while (pork raviolis) were tough. Some dishes were very underflavored (no spice to... More

I have been all over the United States. Each state has its own specialty. California is to me the best place in North America to get authentic and American type Chinese food. I eat Chinese food everywhere I live but it is not the same. It is good but not great. This place is great. Very pleasantly surprised !!! Great... More

We were on our way back to New England and stayed at the Best Western across the street. The hostess was OK. The place was not busy, but the buffet was full and most everything was hot. Good selection. Interior is in need of updating. We were seated in an area with four tables and at one table a gentleman.... More
