The buffet has a wide variety of mostly Chinese foods, Sushi, and some American desserts (lots of jello). About 2/3 of the food items were labeled, so 1/3 is your best guess of what it is. Staff are helpful and friendly. I'd prefer they not...More

Stopped in for a late lunch. The restaurant is conveniently located and easy to find. The range of items on the buffet is good. All of the items we sampled were good. The server was reasonably attentive. The price for the buffet was fair.

This trip was a bit disappointing compared to other visits. The staff is not friendly, at all. The food off the "hot bar" was luke warm to cold. Usually I enjoy the Chinese dumplings, but this time were cold and did not taste good. I...More

Stopped for dinner on my way home through here. Food was hot fresh and quite tasty. Server attended all my needs quickly, my glass was never empty, and my empty plate was gone in a flash. Better service is what I would call it, and...More
