Big Selections

The place smelled like old people and that's being nice. I tried the teriyaki chicken which was burnt and not very tasty, then I tried to eat sweet and sour chicken it was nasty.

would say it's about on par with most other Chinese buffets in the Salt Lake area. It's good but nothing terribly special.
