“Typical Chinese buffet”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2011

If you're looking for a Chicnese buffet and are in the area - this may be your stop. There's a lot of food - the buffet price is inexpensive - and if you play FourSquare, there's usually a "Special" that you can claim (we got free drinks).

About the food - it's typical, but has a good variety - Chinese, American, sushi, even desserts. My favorite items were the dim sum. Dinner buffet also includes crab legs. Most of the food was a bit on the salty side for me, but my husband thought they were fine.

So overall, I've had better but this place is not too bad. Will I go again? Probably in a pinch, if we want inexpensive and can't decide.

“IF YOU LIKE CHINESE FOOD THEN YOU CANT GO WRONG!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2011

You pay the same price as you would for one meal at let's say Burger King or Wendy's, but the only catch is you get a lot more food here. Orange chicken and the fried rice are fresh and then the desert selection is really good as well. You pay like $8 to eat as much as you want and trust me Chinese food will fill you up way better then a WHOPPER MEAL!

The waiter was really nice as i was watching him making a rose out of a napkin on the table for a little girl with her family. Customer service was very inviting.
