“great food”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

This place is very visible from the highway, clean and alot of light, Very busy. The food is delicious and always being replenished. The cost is high. ,ake sure you do reservations or be willing to wait a long time on holidays.

“filler with taste”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

The food is quite good given that it is really a big chow-down. It is easy to over-eat and not a lot of incentive to eat healthy food.

“Prepare to spend.”
Reviewed September 3, 2012 via mobile

Dont go here if your tight on cash. We went Sunday night for dinner and paid over a hundred dollars fr four people PLUS DRINKS! And tip... That being said very clean and the foods pretty good but you find yourself hungry a little while later even though you can eat till your about to barf mere hours before... The "fullness" doesnt last i was snackin by the time i got back to the hotel (15 minutes?) Selections pretty good but i was left expecting more for the price tag considerin its really just another chinese buffet,,,

“Just okay...”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

Standard Mandarin fare. Don't assume you will be seated promptly just because you have a reservation-you generally will still have to wait about 30 minutes (in our experience, and this has happened to us more than once). We only bother going here if we are wanting to binge on crab legs.
