Not what we expected at all.

We went for Dim Sum. It really did not turn out to be what we expected. It was like ordering very expensive ala carte. Our past experience with Dim Sum is the wait staff come by with small bamboo steamer baskets. At the Dancin Dragon you ordered and it was brought in stainless baskets/or... read more

The food is below par and the customer service is not good at all. We've been there a few times and it's kind of dissapointing every time.

I have been to this establishment in the past and have had mediocre service and food was "edible". I did decide to give this restaurant one more try and didn't even get service. We walked into the establishment about quarter to 5 and only saw one couple seated and eating. There was no staff to be seen. We waited by... More

We used a groupon, and were very disappointed. I have experienced excellent dim sum, delivered fresh in carts. The quality and experience was terrible. Bone chips found in roast pork roll. Go elsewhere. Longhorns is nearby.

We did not try the Hibachi The buffet was close to inedible. Food was old, cold and dry in many cases. When hot food came out it was not much better. Years ago this was a great buffet - now it is simply a place that no matter how hungry I was I would never go back.

Used Groupon and ate both dim sum and from buffet. Let me tell you it was a total scam because owner charged me an automatic 18% gratuity on my buffet food. Food quality was reminiscent of frozen aisle food warmed up in the microwave. The owner and waiter gave me a check with three different written amounts. Basically they were... More

I have never, in my life, been this disappointed with a chinese buffet. $12.99, for crapola. The food sucked and the health department would love them because of all the violations. You don't put food next to a sanitizer water bucket with the rag hanging out and dripping on the food. What food that was on the buffet had either... More

Got a half price coupon for Dim Sum and thought we should try it out. Their Dim Sum has to be ordered from a menu, no carts on a Sunday around noon. Some of the item pictured on their menu was not available, but they don't tell you that. It just never shows up. The food was rather tasteless, even... More

I am truly disappointed with this place. First time they opened two/three years ago they've great food; great Dimsum menu, tasty Peking duck and good buffet food. They had a separate beautifully decorated Dimsum room where you can have your own private party. And the Dimsum were served from the cart that the waiter pushed around. Now all that was... More

Very clean, food was fresh, standard Asian buffet. The quality,was above average. The lumpia was the best I ever tasted. The owner was very friendly, and checked to make sure I enjoyed my meal. I would be back.
