The food was good. The service was below average. The cost was extremely high for small children being charged the same price as adults for the buffet.

My sister is diabetic, so this was a nice change up for carry out road food for traveling for the day. Folks are very nice; wide variety on buffet.

For a Chinese buffet the food is very, very good. We have been here quite a few times and they are very attentive and always refilling the buffet pans with fresh food. This is a spot that the locals come to. There is something here for everyone, even my picky 5 year old grandson.

My father was dying of cancer and is now passed but while he was very sick he could only eat soup. We went in 3 times a week for their egg drop soup because it was all he could eat. The desk people were always rude and didn't want to help us. They went so far as to comment about... More

We had dinner here as a group of 6, 3 adults, 3 kids under 4 years old. The waitress was very sweet and made sure to keep the table as clear of dishes as possible. The food was really good, I like the variety of Chinese food they had to offer. Everything tasted fresh and the price was very reasonable.

This place was great. There were 12 of us and they arranged a section so we could all sit together. The waitress kept drinks filled and empty dishes cleaned from the tables. The food was fresh and the variety was great. We plan to return next year.
