Granted, it's a buffet and those don't specialize in gourmet fare, but they had a nice variety of dishes in a pleasant atmosphere, and the price is right.

We went there for my birthday dinner and I have to say im so disappointed. The food was cooked poorly it all tasted the same. As for the dinning room, we were sat in the back right next to the bathrooms where there was old booth seats piled up in the corner. The tables seat and silverware was old and... More

It was a bit pricy as they charge dinner prices all day long on weekends and holidays. There were plenty of crab legs and various seafood. The food was good and they had several American selections for those not into Chinese cuisine. I'll try the weekday lunch next time as it's half the price. The bathroom doors were very fancy... More

Not the best that I've ever been to, but absolutely fantastic variety. Staff was very prompt in replenishing food. Will definitely be back.

Pros: immediately seated, brought our drinks right away, and the plates were immediately removed as we finished. Cons: the food was not great, looked old, tasted like it had been out for a while, the bill was brought to me before we had even finished eating (felt like we were getting kicked out).

The food is so not worth it. Average to below average buffet fare, which is far below par for almost any Asian take out place. But grosser than the food, which seems to sit out indefinitely, is the clientele. Pretty sure there's a frequent flyer deal for people over 300 lbs.

While there is a wide variety of selections many of them have very similar taste rather than the unique flavors of Chinese foods that I expect.

We've eaten here MANY times, and have never been disappointed. I DO have a preference for sashimi whenever 'sushi' is offered, and this restaurant did just fine with their additonal sushi bar / prep table. I've seen few Chinese buffet style restaurants that also offer a sushi bar with the rest of their offerings. This one, however, is a significant... More

We went to the Super Buffet for their lobster night for $14.99. Because we are being more careful about eating healthily, we stuck to seafood and vegetable dishes plus steak. We avoided all the noodle dishes and high calorie foods like breaded shrimp and desserts. It was the first time that we didn't gain weight at a Chinese buffet. We... More

I usually go for the lunch buffet. The price is right. Nights and weekends they add crab--that's all I found different--and the price jumps. They also offer a frequent diner card. I start with the cold table--LOTS of seafood (shrimp and mussels are cold and fresh), fresh fruit, and miscellaneous stuff like jello, pudding, kim chee, and condiments. Next I... More
