“NOT so GREAT”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

The food is ok if you can get past the fact that the place is not very clean. If they keep their dining area that bad, It scares me to think what the kitchen must look like. The service leaves something to be desired. Every time I have been in here they make me feel like I have just interrupted them from something more important! I will never go back!

“Great food, and prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

I go there often with my family, it is one of our favorite places to eat. You can't beat the prices, selection of food, helpful staff, and a good time.

“$$ and check out the health reviews”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

Definitely check what the health inspection reviews have been recently before eating here. They have a bad history but I believe they have new owners now. They had items like frog legs that you won't find at most Chinese buffets.

“Stank!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2012

Sorry guys, I love cheap chinese buffets, but this one just plain stinks. Usually the feed at a chinese buffet isn't the best or really traditional, but one expects that and enjoys it for what it is. The food at this place however, is lacking in every way. Also the staff doesn't really speak english, which I understand not everyone at an ethnic restaurant needs to, but there needs to be at least a few people who can communicate to the customers in a friendly fashion.
