“Too much meat”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2011 via mobile

I went here expecting a lot of options. However, all there was, was different kinds meat. No real variety at all. The sushi tasted way too fishy. Like it had been sitting a while. We oreldered a tofu dish and there was a piece of chicken in it which disgusted me being I am a vegetarian. I felt safe ordering tofu but there was still chicken in it. Tells me the kitchen must be a chaotic mess for that to happen. I will not go back here. Too much money for all the same choices.

“very inconstitant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2011

Food good sometimes some time the beef is like a shoe. sometimes the help is great sometimes the wait help is "LOST" Sometimes the grill is great sometimes the grill man has no clue (too many different guys there). I have never been to a place so many times with so many different workers.

“Chinese Buffet, great choice of food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2009

We travelled away from the Wilkes-Barre area, some 20 miles to try this Chinese Buffet in Hazleton. Easy to find as it just off to the side of 'The Church Hill Mall' on the 309.
The staff are very friendly and the food choices are very good, there carvery beef was delicious, not the usual chewy stuff you get in most Chinese Buffet's.
It was a Sunday so a couple of $$ more than in the week so we paid just over $24 for the two of us.
We would certainly take a ride out to this restaurant again.
