“Fast Service, seats many”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

This restaurant can accommodate many people. Often bus trips will stop her. The food is good and the service is fast. There are many choices which include soups, sushi, chicken, pasta. There is a made to order Hibachi chef/grill. Atmosphere can be a little loud sometimes. The homemade donuts are great.

It is what it is. Just the usual fare for Chinese buffet, you pay your money and leave full ....would be interesting to have a more authentic offering available.

“Wide variety of buffet food, popular with buses of Asian tourists.v”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

In additon to standard chinese dishes, provide some standard european/american fare at buffet bars. Selection did not thrill me and the place was crowded. Besides the tour bus crowds, locals seem to like the restarant for its all you can eat buffet. I've had better. To me, place lacks atmosphere.
