If you like Chinese Food, then you just have to try this place. My wife just loves it. I go along for the Egg Rolls and Fried Rice. We love this place...

Kept hoping the poor experience was the exemption not the rule, unfortunately this one is not worth your time. Food is ok but the hostess/cashier has terrible customer service and was rude both times.

Could be fabulous, lots of variety of dishes but most were cold if they needed to be warm and warm if they needed to be cool. Was rushed to a table immediately without a greeting.

Dark and poorly lit probably trying to hide something from the health inspector that has already sighted for some issues of infestations. Limited buffet. Go to the Dragon on Fruitville pike in Lancaster beside the old Kmart.

There are several large heated tables of Chinese food. One cold table with salads, jello, desserts, sauces, desserts. Also grill that they will cook your food while you wait if you would rather do that.

I ate at this location a few years ago. It is going down hill fast. The food is seriously over cooked. The food quality is low. I don't know how they can still be in business. The cashier was - well - rude and aloof.

We go here at least twice a month. The buffet is always well taken care of, refilled often, nice variety, and always hot. Meals ordered from the menu also arrive quickly and are well done.

This is my go to place for buffet. The only real complaint is that instead of chicken on a stick, it'd be nice to have beef!

This may be the best Chinese buffet in this city. There are dozens of dishes to be sampled, as little or as much as one likes. White and fried rice await the diner in electric crocks at the rear of the buffet. Dessert items, from...pastries to fruits to ice cream, await the visitor on one side, under a gigantic transparency of a scene in China. If you are so adept, as I am, you may request chopsticks in lieu of the usual flatware; I was cheered by the waitress when she remarked of my expertise with them. There is also a Mongolian grill, where you can select components of your entree and watch them being prepared in your presence. For value-minded attendees, there is a punch card reward system that allows a free premium after the required number of visits. No matter what your taste, it is difficult not to leave full and happy from this excellent eatery.More
