I have been going to this restaurant for over 10 years for the buffet lunch always consistently good. Great tasty selection. I start with won ton soup, they offer two kinds of rice, sweet and sour pork often ginger pork or dried garlic pork, chop suey, chow mien, egg rolls and deep fried chicken wings always a favorite, and many...

We ordered takeout and got some standard items, sweet and sour chicken balls, beef and broccoli, chicken fried rice, egg rolls and wonton soup. The total came to $55 but they take 10% off if you pay cash. When we unwrapped and opened the food at the house it did not look very appealing. The egg rolls looked like a... More

I was a regular customer for years, until recently. The waitresses are good but the owners are rude and with a high turnover of staff I can only presume it's because they are not treated well. The food quality is on and off meaning sometimes it was very good and other times it was very greasy and not so good.... More

We had late lunch, which was pretty good, the server was very helpful, the only negative was the heating system that needs to be repaired, because when it came on it was very noisy.

So we decided why not try it...well we looked at the buffet and were not impressed. It looked dried out and had been there for awhile. We ordered off the menu... More

We were looking to try a new restaurant in Duncan for the family and I have driven past this place several times. The interior was run down with stains in the carpet and the tables were uneven. All the cups and utensils looked dirty. We had the buffet and the food was bland and over battered. The soy sauce was... More

Hadn't been here for a few years and was really in the mood for some chinese food. We tried the buffet and since it was just after 5:00 figured everything would be fresh. The rice was hard. The sesame chicken( ? ) was like chewing shoe leather. The squid was tender and the best thing there. The chicken wings were... More
