“Always go, but it's nothing special.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2011

Everything about this buffet is "meh". The food is not made fresh, but it's tasty and addictive. That's why I always go back.

“only good for lunchtime pricing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2011

We went around 4:00. By that time it was the dinner menu which included crab legs and sashimi, both of which I never eat so I think lunch ($10) is a better deal than dinner ($15).

Good service this time. I found that the selection was pretty limited and when we first got there a lot of the bins were empty. It took the cooks about half an hour to replenish most of them. Just mostly deep fried stuff and not many vegetables. Compared to other buffets, the food on your plate here is mostly brown/grey... not much colour... They did have a few unidentifiable items and stuff you don't often see at other Chinese buffets such as: coconut jello, almond jello, red bean dessert soup. The decor is pretty blah and dated. No bean balls, I guess due to the time of day.

I would only go back during lunch in the future.
