Looking for a quick bite for lunch we zipped in here. There were quite a few cars for a weekday so we thought it would be ok. WRONG! Within an hour or two I was running for a bathroom. NEVER again! Hopefully I'm wrong and it was something else! Place needs some work. Was not the cleanest and needs some... More

Oysters and boiled shrimp were excellent. Typical Chinese items were good for a buffet. Salad was very nice and the ice cream was as good as any premium ice cream store. The cookies and other deserts were surprisingly fresh. Good value for the price. Service was excellent.

I wish there was a rating category between poor and average, because that rating would be my more accurate choice. First, the good: Wide selection of food, and sushi. Sushi was above average. Hot and sour soup was good. Now the not-so-good: The entire place needs a thorough cleaning. Like they need to shut down for about 48 hours and... More

We went to the Buffet on a Thursday evening, so maybe they had old food, but a lot of it was stale or tasteless, unless it had too much soy sauce and was overly salty. Maybe we made the wrong choices in food, but the bottom line is we will not be returning. It's been a couple of years since... More

Good selection? Wide varieties? Yes to both questions. But some items are average, and some are great. Depends on your taste. Uniqueness #1: on one section of the buffet table, you can pick all the raw food and veggies, then the staff cooks it and presents it back to you in a bowl with soup in it. Very tasty, I... More

Stopped for supper and the place looks old and ratty. Food has little taste and some of it was cold. Jello had a hard crust on top and server stopped by one time other than drop off the check. Not impressed and not going back.

I went on a Saturday afternoon too late for the posted lunch time, my fault. The food was good and the place was clean The fact that a Buffett is $12.99 and that is posted, the price of $1.69 was added for soda. Come on, if you are charging that price throw in the $.07 for soda . Cheap

We stopped for lunch and there are definitely plenty of food options available. We were not impressed with the quality as there was plenty of oil in most dishes and didn't have a fresh taste. If you want to get filled up and don't care how you feel after eating it is okay. The entire atmosphere doesn't give the appearance... More

This updates a previous review. This restaurant used to be one of my favorite places to eat in the area. I eat there about twice a month. Potential Patrons should be aware that there are two tiers of pricing here. Lunches on week ends and holidays are $12.99 for essentially the same food which is served the rest of the... More

This Thanksgiving night, so we had few options. This is our first time, what a disappointment. The lobster, crab, were older than I am. I was not impressed as the vegetables were tired and far overcooked. The sushi and pho were very nice, and made to order. Sadly, even the ice cream is freezer burnt. We lived in Hong Kong... More
