We went there after reading good reviews. Not even close to average China buffets I've been too. Dimly light small buffet with no desert selections. Some reviews said it was $8. For 2 it was $23!

Good service and pretty good food. They keep a good eye on the buffet to ensure food is replenished regularly. Everything was decent and the price is good both for lunch and dinner.

DO NOT EAT HERE. I unfortunately did while on a road trip with friends. We are in college so the $8 buffet sounded great. The food was all sugar, salt, and low quality meat. It all seemed like frozen then fried crap. It was gross....More

Definitely not worth $9.99 each for a buffet. There were maybe 8 food entree selections and they were over cooked and bland. Even the crab Rangoons were too hard and probably sat under the heat lamp for hours... wish we would have picked somewhere else...More

Not great, not bad. I liked the pepper shrimp and pepper chicken. Most of the rest was just OK. Plenty to eat.
