Always great food and service. They host gigs with local artists and they also have a nice gallery wall featuring local art. Interesting decor.

Okay.. The buffet is filled with some tasty fat-enhancing selections but what the heck... once in a while, right?! Reception: Friendly Service : quick and friendly Facility: Large dining area and fit appears to be immaculate. Parking: Plenty as the restaurant is in a mall with a storefront presence. Price: Approx $20 for dinner... Would I eat here again? Well,... More

Had the noon buffet. It was average at best. The selection was not large, just enough to justify "buffet". It was expensive compared to better buffets but that may be because of northern location.

At my place of work, we are often treated to lunch. This restaurant is, by far, the most requested choice! Love the food, especially the lemon chicken! Definitely my favorite!!

We heard that this place was the only restaurant in town that serves sushi...... And it did. You are better off going to Safeway and buying the pre-packages stuff. The buffet was horrible, the vegetables were covered in oil, everything was over salted. The "soup" has about half an inch of oil on the top and besides the oil, all... More

I was told by a local that this was one of the good places to eat so I was excited since there isn't much to choose from. The service was poor as no one came to ask how my meal was or to refill my drink. The food choices on the buffet were few. The food tasted bland. I think... More

I'm not an expert on chinese food, but have eaten enough of it across North America, to know what tastes good, and if the food is cooked properly. I had heard that friday night is seafood night, so thats the night i tried this buffet. For this restaurant, seafood night consists of the tiniest mussels i have ever seen ,... More

If you are looking for a nice buffet style dinner, and a mixture of everything from miners just up from the shaft to business men in suites, this is the place for you. But make no mistake, the food here rocks. Always. Stop by and see if it's for you.
