We eat here often as it is the only Chinese in town. Sadly the buffet keeps going downhill. It's just not worth it anymore. Everything tastes the same. Same food. There are so many items I don't eat because I have gotten sick that it's...More

We went after 1pm for the lunch buffet ($7.99). It is a very typical décor and our waiter was attentive and knowledgeable. We started with the salad bar and found all the items fresh, and the dressings tasty. Next we tried the hot and sour...More

Good Chinese buffet, go there occasionally to satisfy my craving for massive quantities of Chinese food. Usually an excellent selection on the buffet, cook-to order hibachi-type grill, sushi, and good, friendly service.

Cheap ingredients, doesn't look clean and food tastes awful! Shrimp tasted old. Hot and sour soup tasted strange. Service was ok.

We frequent this buffet as it is the only Chinese Buffet in town. I keep hoping that it will improve with time but sadly, it hasn't. Things are dry, over cooked or have been sitting to long. We avoid the salmon, the soups and the...More
