Good Food and Entertainment

We were not very hungry for dinner and wanted something different so thought Chinese would work. We were glad we stopped here. The crab rangoon appetizer was excellent. We split a dinner of sesame chicken which was good. The best part of the meal was our entertaining server. I still have my... read more

Yuk. This restaurant was recommended by a fellow traveler while we were in Homer Alaska. While the food wasn't awful, it was mediocre at best. The waitress ignored us as if we were bothering her by being there.

The food was good and the host (owner?) was a talented origami folder. It is too bad my 4 year old granddaughter couldn't be with my daughter and I -- she flew back home before us. The host knew many languages -- at least the common expressions

I grew up eating Chinese food in New York's Chinatown. While the service here is great, unfortunately, the food is not. The vegetable stir fry had a ton of sugar and corn starch. I had to rub the sauce off on the rice. The chicken and broccoli was too sweet with a ton of starch as well. I wish I... More

My husband and I stopped here after having gotten turned around in this small town and thinking that this was one of the only restaurants to eat. Wrong! Keep driving and don't stop here. The buffet lunch had poor choices and was not good at all. We paid the 9.95 for each of our meals but it wasn't worth it.... More

The food was nothing to rave about, although I'm starting to realize that is ALL of the food in seward. I had the shrimp in garlic, and the shrimp tasted quite funny--like the were bought frozen in a store. But the sauce was very good. Service was okay. Overall, not bad for cheap price.

We wanted a nice lunch without spending a fortune. We stumbled upon this restaurant and were their first customers of day. All four of us had the 9.95 buffet. I have had some pretty bad oriental buffets before so my expectations were not that high, but this one was one of the better ones. The waiter was fun. He entertained... More

I stopped in out of interest. Price is right. However, as a tourist, I visit Seward for Crab, Oysters, Salmon, and Halibut. Sorry, I am just not in the food mood for Chinese.

I have eaten here every trip to Seward for years. We were a little hesitant this time because it was dinner time and no cars. We went anyway and SO glad we did! The food is fresh and well prepared and quite tasty. The prices are very low for AK. A lot of food for your buck! The waiter, brother... More
