I have ate here several times and it is either good or bad, but never great. The one thing that they do offer that is great is the sushi, or the kind of sushi that I like is great anyways, I can't speak for all of it because I don't eat all of it. I love California Rolls and there's... More

I spent a lot of time in Newport back in 2012 and this Chinese Buffet was one of my favorite places to eat. Relocated here a month ago and have dined here twice. I'm sorry to say that the quality and selection has gone down a great deal. It will be some time before u try it again.

The food taste like they used ketchup in a lot of it. Doesn't taste good and food on bar a lot of times looks like they took some old dried up stuff and mix in.

This was the worst place ever!! Not a lot of selection. The food was Cold! It was a hot day, coming from Water rafting. We really wanted to eat good Chinese food but NOPE!!! If your visiting from another state!! Don't eat hear. The workers we're more attentive to their costume jewelry than their patrons. 😫

Everything you should expect from a Chinese buffet. Food was hot, plentiful, and tasty.... not 5 star dining, but if that's what your expecting from a buffet then you need help!

We used to go there a lot a few years ago, when they first opened after Ryan's had vacated the building. In the meantime they have changed owners and everything went more and more downhill from there. The parking lot on a Sunday evening was deserted, there were only 5 cars parked outside. The glass doors had not been cleaned... More

This place is well situated off the highway. It is maybe half a mile from the interstate. The service was the best part! I never had an empty drink and a dirty plate! I thoroughly loved the cooked food. They served sushi which looked good, but I prefer to see it prepared. However, that's not something I exactly expect when... More
