Should have read the reviews. What an absolute, horrid waste of time and money.

Despite decent presentation of food items, and politeness of staff, quality of food was disgusting at best. Everything tastes the same, what should be crispy is soggy, and there is an underlying funk to the food after a few bites.

I remember Treasures of China as well, and maybe my memory is foggy, but it was way better then.

Now? Yuck.

The food is not worth the effort it takes to get it from your chopsticks to your mouth. The ginger beef was so hard it almost broke my teeth. The Crab Legs were over cooked. The chicken wings were burnt tasting well you know... - I was there on a Friday evening and thought the food would be over the top but my suggestion is Fire the cook(s) and get someone new if you want to stay in business. Strongly don't recomment this place.

Well if buffet style food is on your menu then this place is a must. Quite inexpensive and the food is constantly changing over so very fresh.

Very popular with the Chinese - so must be good. I really like the Mongolian grill (also included in set price pet head).

Deserts are ok. But by that time I have always eaten far too much.

Drawbacks.

Have to wait for tables Friday and Saturday nights.
Quite noisy. Not first date material.
No Chinese pancakes !!!
Always eat too much.

But I go back time and time again.

Lots of choice of luke warm, sticky overly sweet (yet somehow tasteless) gooey mush - really best avoided.

We ate at 5:30 PM in the middle of the dinner rush and found p;enty of room and food. Unfortunately most of the food appear and tasted like it was left over from the the lunch rush. Stale and had chicken balls, deep fried shrimp and onion rings all were unedible. As well the name plates were not kept up and numerous dishes did not have an identification nor an indication of the spicyness.
