As recently as a year ago you could count on the standard buffet here, but now everything is greasy and ill-prepared. Plain old egg foo yung was raw inside, for example, and my dining partner and I both felt queasy after our meal. JUST DO NOT GO HERE. It was once a bargain, but the prices have risen as the... More

My 1st time to a buffet .. and while NOT impressed I was surprised at the number of items that were available .. and most were of acceptable quality. Sadly, the night I attended was not their advertised seafood (crab-leg) special night. Their service was acceptable (but was not outstanding nor overly friendly) ....

I work in the vicinity and always that there were any decent buffet Chinese places in the area (had a real bad experience at the Chinese buffet in fairlane mall). This place was really good for a buffet place. The sushi was great, lots of variety and even the hibachi was awesome! i will definitely return!

This buffet offers one of the best selections of well-cooked food I have ever seen. The price is also reasonably affordable.

This is one of the better Chinese buffets I've been to. On a recent Sunday night, seafood was featured and included squid, crab, crawfish, mussels, oysters, shrimp and fish! Most of it was good, and kept hot, along with the usual Chinese buffet items.

This place has 6 tables of buffet, plus sushi, BBQ, and soup bars. There were 3 types of rice, 4 of noodles, 4 of soup, 5-6 of seafood... You get the idea. Individually, I've had better entrees in other Asian restaurants, but nothing I tried was bad, and you can keep going back over and over. If you're hungry and... More

All I can eat crab legs for a set price. I can have my choice of beverage and they make a lot of mix drinks. The host is really nice and always seems to smile and be Pleasant.

Very plentiful buffet with many choices. There was also a fresh sushi bar and an active stir fry area. The salad bar contained lots of different toppings and looked fresh. The desert area had fresh fruit, macaroon cookies, almond cookies, brownies, yellow cake, carrot cake, candy coated peanuts and ice cream. The wait staff was very attentive and came by... More

Our photo collecting friends meet here for lunch once a month. Compared to other oriental buffets the Fortune has an above average selection of dishes. The Sushi bar is excellent according to my wife. The service and cleanliness are also better than average. The lunch cost is very reasonable ($9 per person.

We stopped at about 1:30 on a weekday and this place was packed!!!! Everything was fresh and steaming (except the cold salads, of course). Sushi and mongolian BBQ; some American food items. In looking around, it looked like about 90% of the patrons today were male. I am currently watching fat and calories, and I am delighted to report that... More
