Ate the lunch buffet and everything was average. Small selection for Asian but had fried chicken and salad bar. No crab rangoon and egg rolls weren't great. The sweet and sour sauce was bad as well. The place was freezing and kind of dirty. They only positive was the $6.99 price.

I went here with from friends from Beijing. I told them not to expect real Chinese food. they smiled when they looked at the trays. sweet and sour and stir fried vegetables, rice and noodles but no flavor or spices that Chinese really use. but it has the oriental flavor, so don't regret going

New ownership this past year. Lots of nice salad and dessert selections. Plenty to chose from on buffet. Quality may be medium but hot and plentiful. Some sushi also. Loved that they shut down the crummy soft serve machine and went to 6 selections of regular ice cream flavors in a freezer that you scoop yourself. That was a big... More

Everything tastes great. Always hot and replenished when needed. Over 90 selections. I go in alone; they have quiet sections and also areas for larger groups.... More

You can't beat the price, even at a fast food joint. I've never had an eggroll taste better (everyone I know who has had it agrees); and I LOVE their sweet and sour sauce; if I could buy that stuff in a bottle I'd get a case of it - I've never seen it anywhere else like theirs (it is... More

In fairness to restaurant, we were there about 7 pm, food wasn't to bad, but prefer the egg rolls at Kwik Trip. Had heard good things from friends, but this business has been here for years and needs freshening up. Torn seats, etc., but will try again.
