The dishes are served with fried rice! The orange chicken was loaded with breading and smothered in sweet, glazy sauce. They don't deliver on Mondays! I will never order food here again.

I've had mu shu veggies twice at this restaurant...the waitress is attentive, remembering me and my order from other time I was here...she clearly takes pride in the food preparation and product provided.... I like the Mu shu...there is a large buffet which is heavy on meat and fried items - typical all one can eat Chinese buffet.... I'll eat... More

I would never suggest this place on my own. The food is not hot - some of it is downright cold. Most of the pork dishes are tough and unless there is a lot of sauce, the flavor is bland. The service was okay, for buffet service. Was there once before and was not happy, but a friend begged us... More

I always feel very leery towards Asian restaurant buffets, because the food can sometimes look suspiciously capable of giving one food poisoning. Some relatives and my spouse plus myself visited here for lunch over the weekend. The restaurant had virtually no other customers present for the entire hour or so that we spent there. We chose to try out the... More

We reviewed this place a few years ago and didn't enjoy anything. Decided to try it again after 2 years and had a much better experience. I ordered Twice cooked pork and it was delicious. Wife had the buffet again and although parts were good, she will also order off the menu next time. Although not wonderful, it's close and... More

I would have shyed away because of previous reviews, but we ate there last night. I ordered Kung Pao Beef. I loved it. My family loved their entrees also. We will be going back.

Although we were in Yuma, famed for great Mexican food, we discovered a great Asian restaurant with buffet and menu offerings. The buffet was extensive, and a variety of unique offerings. The service was fast, friendly, and professional without being 'stuffy.' A lot of interaction with 'regulars', as in a family setting. The hard part was deciding what to try... More

This restaurant has an excellent buffet, the people are very friendly and the food is hot and fresh.I think they have the best Egg Flower Soup and Sweet & Sour Chicken in Yuma

If you are hungry, you won't be when you leave here. The selection is excellent and the food is very tasty. The service is good and since it is a buffet, you can be eating within minutes of entering the cafe. The only hard part is not eating too much while trying to sample everything.
