Great buffet, with good food. Nice environment. Great for a group or family or for a date. So many things to choose from on the buffet.

This is a beautiful, ornate Asian buffet with a large selection of delicious foods. They also have a habatchi grill where you can choose your own fresh ingredients and sauces,and they grill it in front of you, it's very good! Also some sushi and a large desert table.

Since the other buffet converted to Japanese, we decided to try the Luck Bamboo buffet for our annual Christmas anti-establishment lunch. The food was actually hot and fresh, the service and décor were good. The only real issue we had was the awful Christmas carols screeching though the crackly speakers.

Horrible food horrible service place is very unclean. Used to go all the time when it first open..but it's gotten pretty bad over the years. We were seated by the area designated for dirty dishes. So we got to enjoy the cleansing of dishes in our ears and our visual during our meal. The food is old and hard and... More

Where do I start? The greasy/ slippery floor that ALL of our party commented about is a good start. The food it's self was very unimaginative and 80% based on chicken (cost prevention one assumes) One pork and two beef options only. The labels were misplaced and announcing things that were not even there. You basically didn't know what half... More

To say that it was the worst is being far too nice. I have had Asian food from north to south, and on both coasts. This was the worst.

Awful! The buffet is poorly kept. Often items are dried to the pans where it has been sitting for so long. Items are not fresh at all.

I just moved to Columbia and have had Chinese food in Clarksville and in a ton of other states and country and this was one of the worst. They don't have many of the items I was looking for including general tso's which is a very popular dish. The food was ice cold and the egg rolls{fresh off the bar... More
