We had a coupon for half off of a buffet so we thought we would give this place a try. We almost changed our mind just based on the exterior of the restaurant. The sign outside is very run down looking and needs painting. The sidewalks and parking area was in bad need of a good sweeping/washing down and the... More

Listen people it's a buffet not fine dining. The food has always been fresh and hot when I have eaten here. I do agree about the prices going up it is kind of expense for what it is but then again everything goes up.. Best Chinese in town without a doubt.

We tried this place last night and it was and hour and a half before closing and they were out of many items on the buffet that were never replenished. The food that was there was not impressive at all. Way too much money for poor food. Don't waste your time and money!

This used to be a great place to take out of town family. Everyone enjoyed the food. About a year ago, the prices went up and the food quality went down. Even worse, a child is behind the cash register.

One of the top two chinese buffets that I have been to. A lot of well prepared items on the bar, and they keep them fresh.

My Husband and I eat here a couple times a month. It is wonderful Chinese cuisine, and the staff is always friendly & helpful. My children love it also, and when you are dealing with picky eaters, that is always a plus.

Excellent choice of food, oysters on half shell, crayfish, boiled shrimp, snow crabs ($3.00 extra), sushi these come with dinner (10.00). Wonderful selection of traditional Chinese food. Great deserts. Ambience is good, feels very comfortable. Service is very good. I recommend the buffet because the food is hot and freshly served. You will find items that fit your taste.

Unlike most buffets, this one cooks and serves smaller batches so that the food is warm when you serve yourself. The sushi is fresh, the sauces are flavorful. They also offer a few items that you usually won't find at this type of establishment. The frog legs are cooked perfectly. On weekends, they serve crab legs that are optional. If... More

We were very hesitant to go because of the bad reviews, but our hotel clerk recommended it and said he eats there on lunch and they are pretty clean. I honestly don't know what to say about the worm comment...I wasn't there and can't say it's not true or otherwise. I can tell you our experience, and it was well... More
