After reading the negative reviews on this restaurant I was reluctant to try it but my wife wanted Chinese so we decided to give it a go. The food was very good and the service was fine even though the waitress knew about as much English as I did Chinese, but she was very pleasant and we managed fine. We... More

Three of us ladies in our 60s went in, saw that there was very little on the buffet, and it had obviously sat there awhile. We filled our plates but the food was inedible. We got up to leave, and a man and woman who worked there actually chased us. They locked the door and wouldn't let my friend out.... More

Great little Chinese restaurant in Natchez. The only one I think. It looks like a dump from the outside but don't let that fool you. The food is excellent, tasty, and delicious. They have a big buffet but I have not tried it. Not really into buffets but it looks and smells delicious. If you're in the mood for Chinese... More

It was about 8:15 and the restaurant closes at 9:30 when I went to eat the buffet. The food looked like it had been sitting out all day, probably because it had, but I ate it anyways because I was with family who wanted to eat. The food was cold. It was sitting under a warmer but it was cold.... More

I was very disappointed crab meat was imitation. They used spaghetti noodles instead of egg noodles. As we were about to finish we noticed a roach on the floor.

One if the best buffets I have ever had. We went two times after church on two different Sundays. Both great. I can never find peanut chicken and they had it. Great fried shrimp, too

I love this restaurant for the very, very tasty food, the huge selection of food on their menu and buffet (I am not a huge buffet lover but members of my family are), and how easy it is to get a to-go order. The customer service is great. Everyone is very friendly. My orders are usually completed very quickly and... More
