An ordinary joint for buffet. Nothing great about the place other than the food is cheap and affordable. The place is smelly and needs cleaning.

The place is run down and the buffet options were old and low quality. The restaurant is dirty and needs a good cleaning. The front deck clerk did not seem to have any interest in working there.

The food here was just not very good. It all tasted bland and stale to me. They had a decent selection and there were a few good items. Most of the items on the buffet were also cold. All the chicken is HEAVILY breaded, the vegetables were not tender, and the egg rolls were just flat out blah. We came... More

The place has decent food. The place is a little run down as they have been there for several years. The good I had was good but nothing to write home about. If you are west columbia looking for a buffet this is the place.

If you are headed to Hobby Lobby (right across the street) or Carolina Pottery (just down the street), this is a great place to stop for lunch. It offers a value-packed, all-you-can-eat buffet of Chinese foods including mei fun (incredibly thin rice noodles), egg foo young, and black pepper chicken. Actually, there must be around 30 offerings but I just... More

I'm on a mission to try all the Chinese restaurants in Columbia, there are a lot but this one is one at the top. The place is clean, staff is always friendly and the price is very reasonable. The place is rather small but I have never been in there were I couldn't find a seat. The food is very... More

I eat Chinese food at least three times a week and I have for over 25 years. I am always looking for a different place to try. My son told me about Dragon City and said, "you have to try it." I went at 8:30PM on a Monday. When I saw the buffet I was a little concerned but when... More
