First I'm surprised at the bad reviews on this restaurant buffet. Everything I had was delicious. No it doesn't have rows and rows of choices like the big Chinese restaurants but is perfect for York. There was plenty of choices from the salad/ dessert bar with fruits(huge grapes, peaches, orange slices, to Chinese items and Chinese desserts and sherbets. Then... More

The buffet was excellent. My favorite was the pepper steak and onions. Most places have steak that is rubbery. Will eat there again.

We did try this Buffet on two different occasions to make sure and both times it was just average! We went around 5pm and found, what I think, were left overs from lunch. About 30 minutes later, the fresh food started coming out. Didn't find the food to be anything but a basic buffet. The dinning room was clean and... More

I took my family here because we usually have a good experience. I hope the owners actually read these reviews and use them. We went to the buffet in the late afternoon. The food was dried out and chewy. The egg drop soup was burnt or something. It ruined the taste of the rest of my food. I was very... More

This restaurant has a good buffet bar. Lots of choices to chose from. It's hard to keep a buffet bar fresh and appealing, but these people do a good job.

We had gone to this establishment one time 3-1/2 years ago, and had not returned. Not having found a decent Chinese restaurant in the area we decided to try this again, which was a mistake. This is a fairly small buffet, and even though there were a fair number of people here hte food was cold, and really bad tasting.... More

No words can describe how bad this restaurant was on our visit. I think we tried to eat there before and walked out, but we forgot. There are no good Chinese restaurants in York. It's an insult to people to sell old, dry, undercooked, overcooked food. Oh, they had sushi on the buffet. I wouldn't touch that with a ten... More
