Sometimes you're just in the mood for Chinese and this place hits the spot! We went on a Sunday (after a drive from Houston) and while the buffet looked tired, the 'to order' menu was a winner. All the classics + sushi (didn't try sushi here)! Two won ton soups, veggie fried rice, snow peas and water chestnuts + a... More

We have stopped here a few times and have both eaten in and taken out. We love the fresh not overly salted food. We haven't tried the buffet but it appears to be very popular. We definitely will return.

Went for the buffet. Most of it was average to good and the sushi was actually very good; the pickled ginger- in contrast to most other Asian restaurants, was only lightly dyed pink. However, I was most impressed with the honest response I received from the owner/ manager, when I asked if they use MSG; she said they don't add... More

Saw this place while cycling and went back for dinner. It was Saturday night and 4 tables were occupied. Selection was okay, albeit some food trays were running low or empty. Granted, it was almost closing time. Food was tasty; however, the place itself needs some TLC. Cost was reasonable at $10 per plate. It is on the outskirts of... More

Small quanity and selection left. No prices posted or menu offered. To top it all off cashier charged us $26 for two people. Hotel told us after... More

Interesting and good Chinese/Asian food. You order at the counter and they then prepare the order and bring it to you. The chef/owner is driven to excellence in preparation and likely will achieve it

No dog on the menu but beef, chicken, shrimp and fish are. Everything is cooked fresh. Plenty of vegetables. Honestly, I couldn't even try everything but I did manage the coconut shrimp, sesame chicken, beef and vegetables, another kind of shrimp and chicken and a pork entrée. It was all excellent. The owner and staff are friendly and efficient. The... More
