As usual we had a long drive ahead of us and we wanted to eat and run. They didn't have the largest selection but it was all good. Not a huge crowd but waitresses took good care of us and deserve to stay busy, very pleasant. If you're like us and don't know the area, this restaurant is somewhat hard... More

The food was ok for Chinese. I have had better. The service was ok. We waited about 20 minutes in line to pay our bill.

Saw this place from Jo-Anns many times and finally decided to try it. Glad we did. Buffet offers a pretty good selection of Chinese dishes and a few basic sushi dishes (you can order from the regular menu as well). Great price for the food that you get. I'd recommend it to anyone who is looking for a good Chinese... More

We were traveling and stopped for lunch. The buffet had most all the typical items. Being vegetarian, we ordered the tofu/veggie dish on the ordering menu and didn't take any meat items from the buffet. At first, it seemed they were going to charge us extra for that dish, but in the end, they didn't. The taste was very typical... More

While staying with a friend overnight in Franklin we went to the Canton Chinese Restaurant for dinner. A nice buffet and those items I tried were OK. They also had about 6 or 8 different sushi. The only negative is I was disappointed in that they did not have any General Tao chicken on the buffet.

Pretty good selection of food and sushi. Large dining area, plenty crowded. The soup selection is good. I will return again

The service was average but what Chinese restaurant doesn't have General Tsos chicken? The food all tasted the same.

The food is really average but the buffet has a great selection and some choices are much better than others. The service, however, is excellent and very attentive. We went with my elderly in-laws and they were particularly patient and attentive to them.

Typical Chinese buffet - good variety of food, dessert and salad included, and lots of meat. Personally I'd rather smaller selections and better quality but overall this was a decent buffet to visit. No Issues.

This is your typical cheap Chinese lunch buffet. Don't kid yourself. But if you can't find something on their buffet that you like, you won't like any other Chinese lunch buffet anywhere. The waitress staff was very efficient and friendly. The restroom was very clean.
