Arrived at 115 pm. Two customers were there. When we arrived. The food on the steam tables was very overcooked particularly the vegetables. This might have been better if the selections were fresh. Unfortunately they were not. My worst experience in a Chinese restaurant this...year. Lunch buffet $11.99 per person.More

There was hardly any food choices on the buffet and then we were charged $12.99 per person. This was during COVID-19 and is the only reason I gave a 2 star instead of 1 star. Maybe they can’t serve everything as normal, but maybe lower...the price to fit the selection. We also had to wait about 15 minutes for egg rolls. The pepper steak was just roast beef. Would not return.More

Food was poorly spiced and cold, warming tables did not appear to be very hot. We were ther on a Suday just after noon and the place was nearly empty, good service but pricey for the quality of food. There are many choices for eating...in Billings so i won't be back.More

Want to be overcharged for bad buffet food that is cold and mostly empty and then feel sick for two days afterward? Then this is the place for you but I will never go here again.

Definitely a solid 3 stars. What does one expect from an out of the way Chinese Buffet..... pretty much what this place was. It was clean, neat and tidy; the food fresh and I thought an ok variety, I feel some of the folks reviewing...are a little harsh on this place. Does the food have wow flavors, about as much as any suburban Chinese buffet! They have some hot sauces to “turn it up” which was nice. Overall not a bad place to visit when in the mood for Chinese! Prices are a couple of dollars higher than I would have thought, not a bank breaker just my observation. I needed a Chinese “fix” today, they helped out 😁More

Food was hot and fresh. A big selection of items. Waiter service was good, kept drinks refilled, appeared to be clean. Enjoyed our lunch, price was good also.

Stopped on a Sunday night. Several customers in place. Food was warm not hot. Food was crusty and seemed as if it was not fresh. Not a lot of selections compared to other buffet style places I have tried. Wish I had continued searching for...a place to eat.More

Have eaten here several times in the past. This was a late-ish dinner, around 7 on a weeknight. Decent selection, attentive staff, great prices

Food is not hot - The meat makes me think they picked up road kill from the road. Very expensive for the buffet. The wait time for table is not bad since there is hardly any people in there. They run out of food fast....When they first opened it was a great place.More

We were five minutes before the end of breakfast and 30 minutes before lunch, so we only got muffins and coffee. The muffins were very dry. The hostess was not too friendly, maybe her morning wasn't going well.

Let's start with bugs in the food....when there was food anyway...horrible service...staff was way to busy on cell phones...I suppose that's the reason they rank so low on the advisor scale... surprised they are still open

Good variety and buffet food was good. Would help if dishes were labeled better as to what they are. Service was good but a little difficult to understand.

Buffet is ok, but I prefer to order from the menu. The staff are nice, but wish they spoke English better.

Hard to find, poorly laid out parking lot. Interior is clean but decor is shopping center minimal. Stall were all pleasant. Food is "okay", nothing special but it's handy to the Pilot truckstop and livestock market and makes a good change from hamburgers. All in...all I wouldn't drive 50 miles to go here but would certainly return if close by.More

I would have been happier had all of the dishes been identified, but what I took I enjoyed. The restaurant itself was nicely decorated, although obviously not new. The wait staff was friendly and efficient. It was a good choice after a long day's drive.
