Yesterday I took my granddaughter for lunch. So sorry of a buffet. Now you would think that at 12:00 the buffet would be hot. No they were left overs from the night before being reheated. Well..never again. Went home hungry...

We do take out about 6 times a year and enjoy the buffet choices. The coconut chicken is awesome and it has a large number of appetizers, entrees, soups, salads, desserts. The price is very fair and we usually buy enough for three meals for the family that cost the same as one meal elsewhere.

It's cheap, average food. Dining room is beginning to feel really run-down and seems dirty even though it isn't really dirty. Service is always good. Buffet variety and quality are OK. As with most buffets, this one is better when it's busy. Also, as with most buffets, they have a tendency to prepare hot foods in batches that are too... More

This buffet typically has fresh well prepared items. As with any buffet, food can get "tired." The staff here does a better job than others freshening the food. Good selection of items, and there is ice cream for dessert included! Staff is hard working and helpful, but rarely interact with customers others than to provide service. This is not a... More

After driving for 7 hours to get to Boone, my wife and I and our two grandchildren were starving and decided a Chinese buffet would hit the spot. The fact it was within walking distance of our hotel was an added bonus. The food was typical of the quality found on most Chinese buffets although there was a much smaller... More

Was recommended, found it to be average. The food was fresh and hot, but nothing to write home about.

We were happily surprised at the variety of choices at this buffet. The lunch crowd took advantage of the abundance. The foods were quickly replenished. Service was quick and efficient. The fried tofu with vegetables was loved by my husband. Lo mein noodles were too soft but ok. They have ice cream you can dip for desert.

We had dinner at $8.95/person it was reasonable. The food was ok. The fried shrimp,sautéed mushrooms and Mongolian beef was particularly good.they keep every thing refilled.

Not the best nor worst I've had. Everything is usually fresh and the correct temperature. Nothing really special.

Food was good with full ample portions and good service. We went a few times as it was close to where we were staying. It's not hard to find though at times it can be a bit rough to get out when traffic is bad but it's not that bad.
