This place was under $10 for lunch including tip. There is soup, salad, grill, sushi rolls, fried foods, dim sum and an assortment of Chinese dishes. Plus dessert area. Everything tasted fresh and was probably prepared well, but some items suffered from buffet heat syndrome...More

Fresh and varied buffet items. Very reasonably priced. Everything was delicious. Lots of different items to try and they had a Korean barbecue as well. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. I would definitely go back again and again and again.

Large buffet on a Sunday afternoon, but $11.95 per person. Not able to order off the menu at all. Food didn't particularly taste good; looked better than it tasted. Nice interior - big, comfortable booth, average service. Wouldn't return, especially at that price.

Went here for dinner after a long day. It has lots of choices from sea food, barbecue to regular Chinese. There was simple California rolls that were very good. There is too much to choose from. The price was excellent for the budget minded.
