Small portions of cold food. The dessert dishes became the soup bowls. So you get a sip of soup instead of a bowl..its beyond rediculous. Its a total joke. As a buffet at least you could fill up. We spent 63.00 on dinner and went...directly to taco bell . Without the buffet its a waist of time and money. What you get is dried out buffet food they keep dry and cold for your pleasure. Just go to taco bellMore

We ordered a Valentine's meal from these guys. It was set to deliver to our home contactless delivery. It seems in our city having hot food with delivery it's not always hot. We ordered from Golden Phoenix 2 months ago and the food was Bland...and tasteless. However the food was very hot. This order on Valentine's Day was just awesome,again the food was very hot. No I just love hot and sour soup, if it is good. A few years back this place had some pretty good soup. On Valentine's Day the hot and sour soup was just awesome. Best I've seen out of this place in years. You guys did a good job tonight. Only complaint was it was 25 minutes late. I can put up with that.More

The short gal in the pink hat that helped me treated us...like we where wasting her time! Go ELSEWHERE there are way better places in BillingsMore

The potstickers were good but everything else was bland. It won’t kill you, but the food needs flavor.

We won't be back. No buffet on sundays until may 5. No buffet on fridays until 430. For delivery drivers when our time to eat is between 2 and 4 this is not acceptable.

The dinner buffet is really high quality and plentiful. It seems that they make small batches of everything and monitor it closely to re-up depleted dishes. Therefore, I never got that "how long has this been sitting under the heat lamp" sort of feeling. My...favorites were the egg rolls, chow mein, sweet and sour chicken, marinated mushrooms and egg drop soup. The dining room is clean and nicely appointed and the servers were friendly.More

This place is terrible! It had been about 18 years since we last ate here and it'll be another 18 before we try it again. Pork egg foo yung was 1 tiny little pancake cut in half with some cabbage, mushrooms, and little pieces of...pork. Egg rolls might as well be called mush sticks, because that's exactly what they were - fried wonton wrappers with some kind of mush in them. Sweet and sour chicken is basically tempura batter with some sauce. The orange beef was just ok, but for a dish that has a pepper next to it on the menu, it certainly lacked kick. I don't know how you serve bland Chinese food - but that's exactly what this was. None of the food had any kind of flavor except the egg rolls and chicken which tasted of oil. I was hoping this place would be good - because Billings so badly needs a good Chinese restaurant - but it's not.More

Not sure what those other reviewers were talking about or if they've even been out of billings before but this is some of the best Chinese. Definitely one of the best buffets I've ever been to and I travel the entire US. Without a doubt...the best eggroll in Billings.More

We were seated at a booth with pink duct tape on the very torn up seat. The duct tape was worn as well. That's fine, went to the buffet, there was hardly any food to choose from. What was there was burnt noodles, rice stuck...to the bottom of the pan, and a few chicken dishes. I got the black pepper chicken, which tasted like fish, and a stale, chewy crab cake. It was so bad we went to the counter to let her know. She got the manager. This is the first time I've ever had food so bad I refused to pay. Stay away from this place!!!! It's no good!!!More

This place used to be my go to place. Even had parties here. Unfortunately items sit in the buffet line to long, can't ask for fresher stuff. The staff tries to help, but a few of the Asian staff could care less about anything. To...bad, could be great.More

I used to love this place. My family and I would come here all the time to eat and it was always delicious. So I figured my boyfriend and I could come here for date night! Bad idea, let me tell you. The fried rice...and egg rolls are decent, but the rest was just meh, pretty gross actually. His food was barely edible! Not gonna be surprised if he's sick tomorrow. It really isn't worth it to come here if you ask me.More

I used to be a regular at this restaurant. For the most part, I had the time to sit down and eat and things seemed clean and the food was good. Service was very good. I had their menu in my car, and started calling...my order in to pick up food. I noticed that area where I was expected to 'wait,' was very cluttered with papers and files. I blew it off to lack of space and you had to do you book work somewhere. And then it happened, no plastic forks in my take out. No details necessary. I told my self, that it could happen to anyone, but didn't return for a few years. I found myself there again last Wednesday. I went inside and ordered food for supper to take home. I couldn't help but notice that the piles of papers and files had grown and now to my shock there was a sectional, which appeared to once have been leather, and frankly may always have been there, was where I was expected to 'wait' for my order. When the gal pointed to this gross seating area for me to sit on I said, 'you've got to be kidding, and that can't be the first time you've heard that.' She admitted that it wasn't. Honestly, I have no idea how this could be going on. Is there NO 'board of health' anymore? I went to my car and waited. When I came back in my food had just arrived and I took it and left. No plastic forks, again. But this time I was headed home, so it really didn't matter, though they didn't know that! The food was VERY mediocre. There was no spice in my 'hot' dish and the pork sweet and sour was just...batter. After eating we didn't feel well. I'm not suggesting it was food poisoning, but something didn't feel 'right.' Frankly..the people running this place are lazy, plain and simple. Throwing out the sectional and adding some file cabinets would be a plus here, but then there is the food. I won't be back.More
