It's reasonably priced and has a decent selection of food. I usually have my order to go and I like they just charge me for the buffet and not by weight like some places do. They don't have alcohol but that's not a deal breaker for me. The staff is nice and locations good.

If you're looking for a lot of options, then this isn't the buffet for you. But considering the price, it's fairly decent. It does not offer any authentic Chinese food or sushi, but it's the typical Americanized Chinese food. Some of the options include beef and broccoli, coconut shrimp, crab wontons, clams, fried rice, lo mein, etc. The plates and... More

After riding in the car all day with my kids I was ready to have a glass of wine with dinner but no such luck here. They don't have any alcohol. I ordered the buffet because it was such a good deal - my 3 year old was free. My five year old was $2.50. Mine was 11 and some... More

This is near some chains that I would highly recommend over this place. The food had a funny taste, the chicken teriyaki was bright red, and my daughter got sick after eating here. The quality or quantity of the food was not worth the price. As far as Chinese buffets go, there wasn't much on the bar at all. I... More

I, generally, HATE all things buffet. However, this place is an exception. Clean, friendly, and fresh food. So many choices

My mother and I had ordered a to go order and went to Kroger to pick up some items for my grandfather. We walked to our car to put the groceries away and the young man working saw us and brought our food out to the car for us! It was SO nice! He didn't have to do that but... More

My husband and I decided to try the buffet despite some of the negative reviews, and to be honest it was very tasty. The staff was very friendly, tables were set with white table clothes, and the atmosphere was pleasant. We tried several of the dishes; kung pao chicken with traditional peanuts, moo goo gai pan (comfort food--sort of like... More

We ate here about a year ago and absolutely loved It. In fact, so much that we drove an extra 2.5 hours out of our way on the way home from vacation. This is all we talked about for months. The selection was not as good and they may have changed how clean the kitchen is, or the cleanliness of... More

I was stuck in Roanoke due to multiple cancelled flights and spent about 14 hours at the airport. Finally got to the Hyatt Place and this place was a short walk, which was good since it was raining. The buffet looked amazing, but I ordered off the menu, and was pleasantly surprised with the food. Delicious and a good portion,... More
