It was more than busy, the food was ok..some was very good, but it needs to have more attention given to cleaning and sprucing it up.....I realize it is a buffet, but some of the plates and utensils were used to death, bent tines and broken plates...not a great presentation.....

Stopped here for lunch after a COSTCO run up to Bellingham. The place is packed and I would guess 90% of the other customers are Asian. Must say I am surprised that this restaurant is not rated more highly here on trip adviser! But my husband and I have travelled in Asia and really enjoy Asian food. It is certainly... More

My wife and I go to this restaurant after a shop in Costco and have found the selection ample for Chinese food that also offers some sushi as well as American cuisine.Most of the Chinese dishes are tamed-down for the general public, though the shrimp are perfectly done for my taste.The sushi is decent and fresh.This is one reason that...

Olive Garden was a 1 hour wait so went to this Chinese buffet, food was good and included crab legs and lots of other seafood. The trays were topped up continuously. Popular with students the night we were there.

This is my gf's favorite restaurant so we go several times a week. Has a good selection of sushi, and a reasonable selection of other foods. Not much for vegetarians, though a meal can be made. Service is lackluster, though timely. Lots of Asians eat here. Often very busy. Lunch prices until 3:50. Best buffet in town.

We had lunch at this chinese buffet style restaurant. The price was very reasonable at $9 per person for lunch (10% off for seniors). The buffet had a great selection of choices for everyone. There was a salad bar, variety of fruits for dessert, chinese food selection, sushi bar, two varieties of soup (hot and sour, wonton) and a good... More

My first time was a good experience. It was the lunch buffet on a weekend and there are many types of food to choose from. Aside from Chinese food, they had a little bit of seafood and also a sushi kitchen. I didn't enjoy as much anymore when I came the second time. For me it's not something worth to... More

First, I had to wait until the host finished playing with his IPhone until he seated me. There were others behind me waiting, as well. Instant turn-off. The food itself was really mediocre. Everything tasted the same.

An excellent buffet. Very tasty food. .Lots of variety. Several soups. Lots of meat (beef, pork chicken) and fish choices- several shrimp and calamari choices. One area of dim sum type food - dumplings, buns. etc. A large salad and desert area. Many varieties of noodles, vegetables and rice dishes. Easy on the wallet prices for lunch or dinner. Large...

Wonderful Buffet...who thinks up these names anyway. Well, contrary to all the naysayers, we really enjoyed our dinner meal. The place was packed when we went and it was sort of a madhouse and noisy. We first took a look at the buffet offerings and noticed that at least 60% of the clientele were Chinese-speaking families, so that clinched it... More
