“Absolutely horrible experience”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

They have a large buffet so the name does apply, however, the quality is anything but good. At first it seems to be decent food, but few bites into various items and you can taste the non-freshness. If you do come here, stick to the common items found in chinese restaurants as they seem to be replenished often. Seafood you are asking for trouble. The prices are bit high especially on weekends. Don't expect the best of service. I have been here 3 different times and feel they had ample opportunity to prove themselves worthy of my time and money. They failed each and every time. You have been warned.

“Hibachi Grill and Crab Legs!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

The selection is big, big! Quality of food is so so. But the Hibachi Grill and the crab legs is the best part! The service is alright but the people serving are not very good with there English so it's hard to communicate with them.

“Large selection”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2012

They seem to try to make up for lack of quality in larger amount of selections. That doesn't work for me.

“Love, love, love it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2012

This buffet is so extensive I challenge anyone to go there and not find something they like. My husband and I like to go at least once a month and we go mostly for the seafood but friends who go for the chinese say it's very good too. The dinner buffet on the weekends is not expensive at all at $15.00 as it includes dishes not served during the week. I was introduced to Snow Crabs legs on Sanibel Island and remember paying $36.00 for about 8 to 10 legs! These are included in the $15.00 dinner, as are oysters, clams, crayfish etc. The choice in this place is amazing. They have a raw bar and the food is cooked while you watch. A sushi bar as well as the buffet itself, seafood, chinese food, prime rib that you slice yourself, fresh steamed vegetables, fruit and pastries and icecream for dessert. One review on here said they always felt sick after? All I can think of is ... It's very easy to over eat!
This place is more of a 'diner' atmosphere. It's not a cozy little restaurant. You go for the food and the food is great. Simple as that.

If you're hungry and want a huge choice and variety of food you won't find a better place to go.

“Best Chinese around.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2012

We live in south Naples and this is the ONLY chinese food we will eat in Naples and Marco. This buffet is very good and the price is right on weekdays. On weekends it is $15.00 because they serve crab legs and other more costly seafood but we don't eat any of that so we only go on weekdays. Would like to go on weekends, but don't want to pay higher price for food we are not eating.
