Shumai was old, curry was salty. Otherwise no complaint, just typical average buffet food plus sushi. The restaurant itself was nicely laid out, decorated, and clean.

We were treated to this place after a funeral, of all things. We all were very very delighted with the staff, the service and the food.

We went here for lunch searching for good Chinese Food here in Torrance. Well this was not it, despite the fact that it was packed. We were seated right away and the waitress took our drink order and kept our drinks full. So service was good. Food, however, was not. Everything oddly had the same bland flavor to it. The... More

Very large venue, always clean, the food dishes, which there are many, what a verity to choose from, always... More

Good for people who cannot make up their minds because the restaurant has many good selections with reasonable price. Restaurant is kept clean and tidy.

china buffet - Torrance, overpriced, food is very ordinary, desserts are unimaginative and bland. Not worth the high cost (close to $25-$30 fee)

They really have everything, quality is very good, so this is an ideal place to go if you want to eat a lot and try different things at modest price.
