“Gung Hei Fat Choi !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

Food is fresh, the servers are quick to pick up your plate, so don't talk too much or turn your head the other way because your plate will magically disapppear. The restroom needs to be checked regularly but over all great value for your tummy and money but just don't over indulge !

“Wide selection of food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

This is better than the average Chinese buffet. The egg drop soup is very good and kept "hot." There is a wide selection of main dishes - meats and veggies. The spare ribs are very good, they serve snow crab legs on weekends and have a sushi bar and mongolian grill for those wanting that stir fry dish. The servers are very good at keeping your drinks full and taking away plates that are finished. Deserts are the usual affair at a buffet - fruits, cookies, puddings, soft ice cream and baked dishes.

“Huge Selection!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2011

I've been to numerous Chinese buffets, so I would rank this as VERY GOOD!
Hubby and I dined here on a Saturday evening and were seated immediately. The dining room is huge!
Buffet table was very clean with lots of attention by staff.
Soooooooooo much to choose from here - sushi, Mongolia grill, Chinese entrees, salad and dessert bar! Everything that we tried was hot, fresh and very good.
