Lots of food, good price

Great selectrion, local quizine, sea food, bbq, etc. I was excited to see "alaskin crab" on the menu, but was bummed to find out its only friday/saturday. At any rate the meal was good, finished off by ice cream. We will be back

If you go on a special night, like seafood night, they increase prices dramatically; otherwise, you can get a great meal for $14. They have the usual stations for Asian, Mexican, etc. All the food seemed good, and they have a good selection of desserts. My only criticism is that they did not have vanilla ice cream and had very... More

Had dinner there on a Saturday night. They featured an all you could eat seafood buffet. The food was superbly prepared and very tasty. The variety was excellent as well. The main event was snow crab, but they had oysters on the half shell, shrimp, baked fish, and all the trimmings. If you go away hungry, it's your own fault!

Waited for an hour and a half for dinner...absolutely ridiculous. The operations as far as moving people along is not there. You are forced to pick a line and pray that there isn't a party in it or you are screwed. They make no effort to move parties with fewer people along. Service ok...food ok...for $26.00 a person they are... More

We went to the Thur Shan Buffet on a Friday night for the Seafood Buffet. The menu sounded good so we decided to give it a try. We were disappointed. All the fried food (shrimp, scallops) were greasy like the food was not drained after it was fried. The peel and eat shrimp were over cooked and mushy. The snow... More

We have eaten at several casino buffets outside of Las Vegas and this is probably one of the best. There was a large variety of food and it was prepared very well. The service was very good and attentive. There is a wide variety of choices from salads, Italian, Asian, American, and Hispanic. There is also a large dessert area.... More

Really not what I would expect from a hotel of this caliber. decent selection of main dishes, quality is alright. If you love desert this is a great place often 40 selections are available.

Don't expect perfection, but it's OK. Went for breakfast and lunch and got what we paid for. Dinner seemed too pricey.
