“A pleasant surprise”
Reviewed January 1, 2012

Driving through Amarillo, we had a taste for Chinese and picked this place based on some decent reviews and how close and convenient it was. It is a buffet, but you can order off the menu or get a to-go box for the buffet. The staff was terrific, take-out service was super fast and the food was pretty good. We split our order with a few items off the menu and two to-go buffets, so we ended up with WAY too much food for the five of us. Not the best we've ever had, but a very pleasant surprise.

“Good price for buffet, but food was not so fresh at 8pm”
Reviewed September 1, 2011

Items that were fresh were very good. But there were too many dried out items on the buffet.

“The food was stale and very bland-fried shrimp was the only thing that was good.”

What a waist of money! The food was stale and very bland-fried shrimp was the only thing that was good.

“YUK”
Reviewed February 3, 2010

The food is disgusting!! I can not believe people actually like this place. Everything tastes the same. YUK I'll never walk thru the door again. Wait staff was nice. Place was clean but the food sucks.
