Greasy....... Sure, maybe you get a lot for your dollar but, I'd rather pay more for food that tastes edible.

“Overpriced bad food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2011

I hate to say it. This may actually be the worst chinese food I've ever had, at least in recent memory, but that includes some mall chinese food places. On top of that the regular dinner buffet price is $11.99 and I paid almost $13 for the take out version. So let me get this straight, I should pay more when there are no dishes involved, no waiters/waitresses to pay, and I can't go up another time? I don't know if it was a slow night or a new chef but the chicken fingers were soggy, the sauces all tasted like they were from the bottle, the rice was mushy, not a good choice for your chinese food fix in my opinion, maybe their sushi is good. I'll never go again.

“Yummy ChineseTake Out Buffet- Pay By the Pound”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2009

This restaurant offers surprisingly good chinese food at a buffet, and the nicest thing about it is that you can choose take out and pay by the pound. They have a nice variety of dishes, the place is clean, I've been going for years and have never been disappointed.

“Better than most Chinese in Beverly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2009

I live in Beverly very close to this restaurant downtown. In my opinion it is one of the only places to eat Chinese if you want to stay and eat. Most other places are dives that are meant for take-out & delivery orders. (even though these other places offer a few small tables you never see anyone eating at them.) Lots of tables & booths at this restaurant. Never a wait. Nice looking too, although not much ethnic decore. They have a parking lot in back. Workers are nice. Typical buffet - usually pretty good.
