The food is vet priced and they have a small selection of food. Went there while on vacation and it sinks in there. The buffet is 12.00 a person not including drinks. The China woman was not somebody you want to deal with and the food was dry. I'm so thankful we didn't stay and eat.

Was not impressed at all, thought seriously about leaving after the rest room visit but gave the benefit of the doubt. Food was only fair, soup was warm, variety was good but very limited. I also have never seen whit fried rice but I could be wrong. The staff could care less about anyone in the restaurant just talked back... More

We are local and Stopped here for the first time for lunch. The place needs to be cleaned up. The young person at the hibachi bar needs to learn how to cook and smile, along with all the other employees there. Food was average nothing great. Won't be going back.

Okay food, not a lot of selection but that's not that big of a deal. Food is a bit pain and that's okay too. Used to be much better. Came here 2 years ago and it's def gone down in quality. Server didn't even say hello or anything. Again... Not he end of the world, but it doesn't hurt to... More

This is a typical Chinese buffet. A lot of different dishes and a few American dishes to accommodate everyone. Don't think that your getting a $50 dollar meal for $10 dollars. Food is good but not gourmet. It is typical and equivalent to most Chinese take out restaurants. You get a lot for your money. Average food. Nothing to die... More

The restaurant itself is huge went during lunch which was pretty much empty. The food itself was filling, not bad, but a little plain. China Buffet is worth a try.

Better than the average Chinese buffet. The food was fresh and filled in on a regular basis. The mussels where especially good and very large.

This restaurant claims to have multiple Best of the Beach awards and it is a nice looking place but it is terrible with an indifferent staff and poor quality, stale food. Some of it looked dangerous to eat as if it had been out for days. There are better places to eat in Myrtle Beach.

Stopped for a late dinner with our family, buffet was pretty much empty and the food that was out had been there for a while. Service was just as bad, we ran out of drinks and had to go track down our server. To top it off they added 10% gratuity to our bill. For 6 people it was $91!... More

Very good place for cheap dinner. You can get sushi, wok, sweet and sour chicken in buffet. Average check is about $15 per person. They have high chair and meal for young kids like rise, vegetables and fruits
