We had tried this place half dozen times and it was always so-so not to clean run down food iffy some things good most just ok. But the clientele had cycled down to the all you can eat crowd that where there to get all they could eat and that chased off the casual dinners that try all the places... More

I don't know how this place is still in business. The carpet is nasty , bathrooms are always out of order, food isn't good and never at right temperature, and the employees are plain rude ! This is a dump.

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.
