“Food ok but restaurant needs a makeover”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

We ate here a few ago and believe the food was a little better then. The restaurant itself really needs a refresh from the floorcovering to the walls and ceiling, the furniture and just about everything else. Staff is friendly and this makes up for the neglect of the premises a little, but not enough

“Excellent Buffet”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

Excellent selection of dishes, all fresh and tasty. Check out the garlic green beans, and the sweet & sour chicken.

“Better menu food than buffet”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

The menu food far surpasses the buffet, and the portions are huge and family style to boot. Definitely get the general's or lemon chicken, although pretty much anything is awesome. The waitstaff is nice, but some of them do not speak English fluently, so be careful of sentence wording and grammar.
