“HORRIBLE!!!!!!!”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

Rolled into Alpine one afternoon and a local sent us here. Unbelievable! Empty steam trays everywhere, lukewarm remains in several trays were unrecognizable and not fit for human consumption.
One wonders if we were on some kind of surprise reality game show....!
Good news was neither of us got ill, but hardly ate anything.
Our own fault, should have walked out.
Maybe a bad day for management. Try at your own risk.

“Ugh.”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

The buffet food is always cold, and the menu servings are pitiful. at least the sushi is ok, but nothing you'd get in a big city. diner beware.

“OK, but could be much better”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

Not many other choices for dinner in Alpine on this particular night, so I gave this place a try. The vegetable fried rice and the spring rolls were the high point ... other buffet choices were simply "OK," and I didn't try some of the items that I normally would enjoy because they looked very tired.

“Ok Chinese buffet”
Reviewed May 21, 2012

The food was good but they were out of some stuff! Staff was friendly but the entire time we were there it sounded like the SAME song played over in over (not sure as it was in another language)!
