Decided to try the lunch buffet because we had a coupon from a local paper. Everything was cold except the crab rangoon. Even though was there just a little past noon the buffet had very little on offer...even those dishes that were out were very depleted....there was a group of about eight people that hit the buffet just ahead of...

The food was good and plentiful and hot and the staff were nice and attentive. Christmas Day feast--although the room was filled with very loud and obnoxious diners who couldn't use inside voices ;)

Haven't been here in a couple years so figured we would give it a try. Very bad decision although the food was hot it had no flavor at all. I hope I remember how bad it was this time so I don't go again.

Had their buffet at lunch time. The food was cold......the town should send someone in to inspect the temperature of the food in the buffet. I would not recommend this restaurant.........dark inside and not terribly inviting.

Of course, it's buffet...don't expect a gourmet experience. But it was good quality and good selection. Was especially pleased to get shumai - my favorite dimsum item!

The first time I ate here I was disappointed and rather than post a review, that was to me, an off day, I waited a few weeks and went back. Seriously! I wouldn't recommend this restaurant, unless it's thick cold noodles made into raviolies your craving, reheated too many times chicken wings, served cold, Basically everything was served cold, nothing...

I'm not a fan of buffets but the kids love it; The food always tastes good and seems to be refreshed regularly; The service isn't perfect, but it's good; The price is very good for the range of food available.

Thank Steve H
