This was my first time here at this buffet. I was with my wife and another couple. The food was okay. Nothing too special. I am so annoyed by this place because they added a 12% tip onto our bill. Yes, there were 2 SMALL signs that indicated that there would be a charge. We were told that this was... More

We have been to this resturant on a few occasions, the price is reasonable and the service is very good; but the food is not plentiful and is luke warm at best. Most of the lunch selections are chicken based, no ribs or fried shimp[my favorites], stay away from the soups also. The selections for children can be are pretty... More

I haven't been to the buffet in quite some time, but my sister and one of my friends went last night for dinner. The restaurant definitely needs an update as the wallpaper was peeling and it looked a little shabby, but it was clean. (I saw that there were many complaints about the bathroom, but I didn't use it so... More

Crystal Garden is your place to visit if you are not fussy about cleanliness, shortage of smoked eel or salmon which are not available for Lunch, no Duck, and overcooked King Crab legs.

We have been going to this restaurant for many years and it is consistently delicious! It is a Chinese food/sushi buffet all you can eat type restaurant. There are many different dishes to chose from including crab legs and many different kinds of shrimp, soups, sushi and desserts, including soft vanilla and chocolate ice cream.

Nothing special. Typical Chinese buffet. No special dishes. Restaurant clean. Waiters cleaned tables as you went back for more food. When bill presented I questioned the 3 charges. One was the cost of the meal. One was tax & one was the tip. I'd bet plenty of people double tip.

Good atmosphere - great place to go with friends -it is a typical Chinese buffet but the food is fresh and appetizing. We go with a few "girlfriends" and always have a good time. Plenty to eat and with a good variety and it is close for all of us. I plan to go again in the next few weeks.

We used to go here often, until I used the bathrooms. They are absolutely filthy and diasgusting. Never have any soap or papertowels, and always a problem with toilet paper. Your shoes stick to the floor. Visible dirt everywhere in the restaurant too. The food here is just OK, but the dirt is all over. Now, their new thing is... More
