“Variety”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

We go to this restaurant perhaps once every couple of months and find the variety of food offered is quite good. I love their Hot and Sour soup and my husband enjoys the Won Ton soup. Just a word of caution, if you go after 1 or 1:30 in the afternoon, be prepared to have several of the dish trays rather low(they do refill them but slowly at that time of the day). There is a sushi bar, a salad bar, and dessert area in addition to the many hot dishes available.

“Gave it a second try, still not good”
Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

Ate here once before a couple years ago and decided to give it another try... was the same as last time. Found the food wasn't anything special and it had been sitting out too long. Things that were supposed to be crunchy were soft and things that were supposed to be soft were hard. The desserts were dried out as well. The only thing that did taste really good was the sesame chicken. The staff is very quick at clearing your plate from the table but this buffet was definitely not worth $16 + tip.

“real hit or miss place”
Reviewed December 15, 2012

we like to eat here everyonce and a while but it truly is hit or miss one day we went in just at open and the food was not fresh just warmed from the day before other times the food is fresh also i think it would be good if the servers took into account that some non chinese people can speak and understand their langauge some of the things they say are very rude

“Very good Chinese Buffet”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

Restaurant is typical Chines Buffet but it had an excellent assortment and the food was kept very warm and fresh. It is one of the better Chinese Buffet restaurants I have been too.

“Great food if you are a panda- i.e. you like to eat dry bamboo shoots”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

Everything about this place is horrible. From waiters who are more interested in their tips than their jobs. Rude waitresses. Food that feels, smells and tastes like dish rags. By the time I finished eating I was 2 seconds from literally throwing up, no exaggeration. Their food is not even fit for panda bears or pigs!!!
