“No Service!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2012

First visit. Went for lunch, took a while to be seated though it was empty (should have been a clue). Were seated, no plates, no introduction, no waiter/waitress. Left after waiting 10 minutes with no interaction. Maybe just a bad day or maybe bad staff?

“Nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2012

Economical and fun place to eat. If you are looking for a different type of restaurant this is a good one as you can pick your ingredients and it will be stir-fried for you.

“awesome restaurant - delicious food, very good deal!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2012

We met up with some friends (locals) for dinner here on our brief stay in Lakeland. I wasn't expecting much, just thinking this was another cheapie chain serving crummy mediocre food. Was I ever wrong...! We are food snobs and we LOVED this place!!

Very high quality food at extremely reasonable cost, including a fresh salad bar being included with every entree option and $1 pint draft specials. I loved my stir fried dinner with Peanut Sauce; my husband loved his Szechuan dish and our daughter enjoyed her Sweet and Sour.

The three of us got our meals, plus salad bar, a Sprite for the little one, two beers each for me and my husband, and dessert... all for around $55 before tip. We felt this was an incredible deal for fresh and tasty food. Plus, watching the cooks at the round cooking stone was neat entertainment.

Service was friendly and they didn't bat an eye when my klutz of a kid dropped her salad plate on the floor! (hence our 30% tip!)

I wish there was one of these places up here in Vermont where we live - we'd go there all the time!! Healthy, delicious food that is reasonably priced... just can't beat that!!

Highly recommended!!

“Food you select yourself and watch being cooked”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2011

This is a fun place for people of all ages. You get to select what you want to eat. It is as much as you can pile into the bowl they provide. You can choose beef, chicken, seafood, all sorts of veggies, sauces, spices, etc.. Then you go to the grill and watch your meal being cooked. Meanwhile, a server brings rice, tortillas, and drinks to your table. There is a bar area as well as a soup and salad bar if you want. There is outside seating facing the central part of Lakeside Village. We have always enjoyed eating here. The staff is friendly and the food is always fresh and tasty. There are signs that let you know what flavors the sauces are so that should help guide you. This is different if you haven't tried it. Go for it!
