Like many others, visited because of the giant golden Buddha status out front. Decor is almost overwhelming and feels like something out of a movie (or the A-Team tv show). Food is average "American" Chinese with a good selection, and the menu contains a dozen or so of the cheesy sweet cocktails in funky glasses. I was a bit put off by the fact that the menu had a line about adding a dollar to each price - and they charged an additional dollar for every $25 charged (NOT on the menu) but a small sign by the door. Gift shop filled with a mix of cheap goods, dusty liquor bottles, and decades-old nudie posters.
Worth a visit for the kitsch and people watching, but don't expect a bargain.
