I was here on Monday, thinking I will probably get dry leftovers from Sunday; I love Chinese food, so I was willing to take my chances. I was pleasantly surprised – everything was fresh, tender, and plenty of variety - one of the very good experiences of buffet places. Decoration is noteworthy…

Used to be much better. It was ok, but nothing special. Nothing stood out at all. I didn't even like the egg drop soup. Will not return

This is one of the best buffets I have ever visited. The variety was extraordinary and varied from sushi to bar b que ribs. Easy access to all.

We have been here before. It's my wife's favorite place in town; or, it WAS. We paid for our lunch. Then we were escorted to our table. We went immediately to get drinks. No soda. i went to speak with the front desk- "oh, I forgot to turn it back on after I cleaned it" Oversite- that's okay. We get... More

The restaurant is beautiful & well maintained, but I didn't feel there was a very good selection of dishes. I did appreciate that there were more American dishes offered than most Chinese buffets.

Food is usually very fresh, buffet replenished often. Very good sushi. Great ribs! A bit pricey but, if you have a BIG appetite, you'll get your money's worth. They need to have better hot tea.

Very bland. Everything tastes the same. I love chinese but have tried this 3 times and just not to my liking. Nothing special I would go back for.

I ate lunch at Yank Sing today. The variety of food was disappointing as I expected more items. It was not skimpy, but there is a competitor in town who has a much better selection with service and lower cost. The food was hot and very good. The beverage machine was not providing carbonated water. The hostess was informed and... More

The building is obviously an old Olive Garden. The food was fine and the atmosphere was nice. Try to visit at peak meal times or the buffet items tend to get a little stale.
