After a busy day, my sister and I wanted a good meal and she wanted sushi. She definitely got her fill of sushi. We stop here whenever we are in town.

Those who eat at Chinese buffets pretty much know what to expect. Food here was average at best with nothing outstanding. That said, we did not try the hibachi or the sushi. Everything that should be hot was near room temperature. There are 6 buffet tables, and there are many choices, though this lacked egg foo yong, all the traditional... More

It was ok. $8 for lunch is pretty reasonable. I have been in a better buffet places but I wouldn't mind going again. I didn't like dessert choices.

In driving from Maine to Massachusetts, we wanted an Asian buffet lunch option. Our GPS located this restaurant, and the drive there was easy. There was a large variety of food, the staff was friendly, seating was plentiful, and we enjoyed our meal very much.

The food is laid out on self service tables. When they opened, the food was very tasty, and replaced often. It used to be a fantastic deal, especially for those with big appetites. Then the ownership changed, or something. Now the food is mostly hours old and stale, even around lunch hour, doesn't taste that good anymore (maybe they lost... More

We always had fun at the Great Buffet. Lots of food choices. Some of good quality some not. But the place has really become run down and dirty. The floors - although appearing to be clean - had a slimey slipperiness. The tables were sticky and stayed sticky even after repeated washing (we asked for them to wash our table... More

I've eaten here a half-dozen times. The atmosphere is nicer than average for a buffet restaurant, and there's a myriad of choices, including sushi. The food is good, but it's not the tastiest food. Some items are better than others. If they cut down on all the choices and focused on quality more than quantity, it might improve.

This is a classic low quality all you can eat Chinese buffet. If you want a lot of bad food for a low price, this is the spot for you. Personally, I would take a higher quality, more expensive location.
