Our family ate there and all were very disappointed. If you want a reasonably cheap meal and don't care about flavour, this place is for you. We don't eat out much and when we decide to splurge, it matters to us. We will never be...More

Good variety of food, buffet all you can eat style. Free soft drinks agin, as much as you like. Would want to go every night but still very enjoyable. Worth a try.

I have been going to this restaurant off and on for years. The food has never been great. Although I would say the last 2 years have been a little worse then previous years. My family goes here when we cant decide where to go...More

There are no words to describe the bland, icky, greasy, tasteless, and profoundly repugnant organic matter they call food here. Avoid the long counter with the "American" food as well as the dessert bar entirely and you'll find that the starches (noodles, rice) on the...More

The choice of food was awful....the amount of deep fried food was shocking and how can you not have a chicken dish in a buffet?! A waste of money and a terrible experience.

Food was mediocre to bad. Spring rolls were all pastry and no filling. Same with the samosas. Soup not hot enough. About the only thing I liked were the chicken wings. Try Buffet King or The Great Wall for a better buffet.
