Nothing spectacular...

Looking for Chinese buffet near hotel and this came out. Not a wide selection of items,the food was ok, nothing really stood out. Wait service was ok. The cashier seemed like we were bothering her at checkout. Likely a once a year visit.

Food at best is room temperature and of poor quality. Restaurant interior is run down. Stay clear...spend your money elsewhere.

Not a single item on my plate or my wife's plate was good. We both left hungry but nauseous. Definitely the worst Chinese Buffet I've been to and it was $13 per person. $13 isn't expensive for a Chinese buffet, but it is when the food is awful. The inside of the restaurant is rundown and dingy. I'll never go... More

It was not bad, it was filling and it was fast... I always get the steamed shrimp at these places so it is a bargain and it was not bad... Good spot to eat in the area of the high way and Red roof inn..

The fried shrimp was delicious. The vegetable fried rice and vegetable lo mien was perfect. The cheese wonton were a little oily but tasty. Lunch is reasonable; dinner is higher, by about $5 p.p. more, but at dinnertime they have FRIED CATFISH. My husband can devour a whole plate of that! Lunch for two is $14.98, but includes free hot...

I got there at 4:00 they told me that they we going to put out fresh food. They lied and kept food that had been sitting there for a long time. The food was cold. They told me to come back around 6:00 and it would be fresh. The hell with them.

The buffet was average priced, average-sized... nothing too crazy. Enough vegetarian options to keep me and my son happy, and plenty of meat dishes for my SO. Until you brought your food to the table... it was cold. Like REALLY cold... not good. The staff are extremely rude when you ask questions or ask for drink refills, and don't even... More

I love Buffet. Knowing that the business owner needs to make a profit, I rarely give buffets a poor rating. I do understand that the quality of the food will not be o par with what you can get in a regular, a-la-carte restaurant. However, the food that they offer at this place is really of poor quality to me.... More
