“Terrible Cold Food Cold People”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

I came in to eat a couple of times here. Not sure why, and both times the man was rude, playing on his cell phone instead of greeting me. He was on the edge of abusive and our server wasn't much better. She gave me crappy personal service and ignored me the entire time, but she did thank me and smile when she delivered the bill. The food was cold and not well stocked, it was way too greasy. The windows were very dirty throughout the restaurant and the buffet utensils looked like they had older food residue stuck on them when I tried to serve myself certain dishes. Their fish was overcooked and smelled funny. All their fried stuff just tasted old and bad. The salad was old and bad. Not worth your ten dollars and not good for your health. The bathrooms also needed some serious attention and they did not smell fresh.

“Needs to be closed down.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012 via mobile

The sushi was inedible, the hot food was luke warm at best, and when I found the food was not good I decided to look at the fruit thinking there's no way they could have messed that up but I was wrong. the pineapple looked like it was rotting on the outside yet they cut it up and offered it anyway. most of the outer rind was rotting as were spots inside. as far as service I got up and got my own water. there really was no service. I wish id read this review and not the google one before going as i would have passed on this place.

“This place ties for the second worst chinese restaurant in town.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

The selection is terrible, the food is goopy and of poor quality. meat dishes had next to no meat in them, just pans of vegetables with a few bits. The final straw was reaching the egg rolls, and finding that they were all cut in half, so a customer couldn't take a whole one. I'd rate it terrible, but I'm just not willing to say terrible. It just had lousy food, poor management, and no redeeming features.

“Good Be Better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

My husband likes Chinese food and this was the first time he visited since they reopened. He was not impressed though with the quality or variety of the food. He wished he would have picked a different place to eat so he was dissappointed.
