“Roaches. Roaches everywhere.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

Before you think my review is wrong or you decide to discount it because there are two other better reviews here, PLEASE check the Florida Health Department's restaurant inspections for this restaurant - the website is open to the public. The last time I ate here, I noticed a roach on the floor almost immediately after walking in. One roach is one roach, and we live in Florida, so I tried to brush it off. After sitting down, a roach crawled across my table. I alerted the waitress, and while I waited for her to come over to my table, I observed a second roach, and several roaches on the wall. I had already vacated the booth by the time she got to my table because there was a roach on it. She actually HIT IT WITH HER HAND and then laughed about it. I already hadn't planned to stay, but that was just the icing on the cake. As we were leaving, we observed two roaches crawling across the buffet. I had eaten here several times before and this was the only time I'd ever seen a roach, much less many roaches, else I'd have never eaten there to begin with. After checking the state of Florida's health inspector's site and checked out the restaurant inspections, I began to wish I'd never eaten at this restaurant before. Please, don't take my word for it, check out the inspection records - they prove what I am saying.

This used to be my favorite "non-fancy" chinese buffet, but the food just didnt taste good and it wasnt hot. I even thought about the time and whether it would be fresh. It was 6:30! Perfect dinner time
