Went for the first time after reading about it in Sunday paper that it was voted one of the top spots to go to. The price of the buffet was average(about $8), and ordered a water for my drink(for the limited food options drinks should be included in that price). The food on the buffet was hot and tasted okay.... More

The owners of this place are wonderful and personable. The food is mediocre/average for a typical Chinese buffet. I love Chinese food and normally stay away from buffets where everything tends to taste the same. Now I remember why.

Great food, but I do wish the buffet had more hours. We got there as the buffet was closing and had to order off the menu. But food was great.

Love the staff and food. Yemi is hands down one of the best hometown restaurant owners around. The staff always goes out of their way to insure everything is to your satisfaction. If we don't go once a week we feel like we have missed out.

It had been a bit in between visits.It's just as I remembered " just ok". The food was average, but the staff was very friendly. If your in the area its worth a stop, but don't go out of you way.

Always Fresh food on the buffet! Have never been disappointed. The food is some of the most satisfying that you'll find. This is not a mega buffet, but there is more than enough to fill up with. The Owners are onsite and making sure everyone and everything is right.

Good Chinese buffet. The server was quick with beverages (no alcohol) and brought us a menu. We walked over to check out the buffet and everything looked fresh so that was what we chose instead of of the menu. It was a good choice because almost everything tasted very good, I love crab rangoon and they did not let me... More

I have been dining here for many years and the meal/food is very predictable. I mean that in a good way as I know what selections will be on the buffet and which ones that I enjoy most. The owner is ALWAYS there and he strives to make each and every customer happy. The attending employee's are also wonderful making... More

We go as a family at least once a year. The food is usually excellent but I would be lying to say there has been some days where more was to be expected out of the food. Their crab Ray goon (idk how to spell it) is by far the best I have ever had. Yem the owner is a... More
