I have never had bad Chinese food until Tuesday at lunch. There was no Sesame Chicken on the buffet so I ask for some. The chicken was hard and dry. The sauce was hot and spicy after I was told that it was not. There was very little Chinese food on the buffet. It was almost all American. My sister... More

The four of us found this as a last resort, as there's not enough decent restaurants in Cherokee; especially if the casino buffet is closed. None of us really liked the food we ordered off the menu. They have a buffet, but we didn't want to eat that much. We arrived around 8:15 and they close at 9. We were... More

There was NO food on the buffet. The waitress kept saying it's coming in 10 minutes but we never saw it and my husband never got a drink. We waited about 10 minutes and left paying for our drinks. The waitress said there had been a big crowd and then "no more food"...it was 7 pm on a Saturday night... More

`Food skimpy, dried and old looking. I came in for an early dinner. Flies in the restaurant. The only thing decent to eat was the cheese won ton wrap. It was gross. I will never return. Staff was friendly though.

Even when I informed them that MSG is ARSENIC - and the body can't rid itself of it, thus it's Neurotoxic, the owner / manager scoffed at me! He doesn't care he's KILLING his customers - albeit slowly!

Don't expect a lot of this place. It's the average fair, but it's not bad for the price. Not a high end setting, more casual place.

Nice little restaurant that is located in a small shopping center. We like the lunch buffet....super variety of foods....and the food has always been hot, not lukewarm as you find in some buffets. A great value for the money. Never had any complaints about the food or servers. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

It was late and we were hungry. We thought Chinese take-out would be the way to go. Unfortunately communication between the restaurant and my friend was not very clear so we ended up with double orders, way too much food, and a bg bill.We could have handled that (?) but the food itself was very bland to to the pont...
