“Awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2012

Very tasty food with a lot of choices. I loved the huge oysters in black bean sauce and the mussels "au gratin". I only tried the seafood, one duck dish and frogs legs. All were good.

“Pricey, but lots to eat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2012

Many items, but the cost was about $20 per person for dinner with tip. Lots of variety including a mongolian barbeque, sushi and a bit of americana like pizza.

“Should be Closed Down... Disgusting.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2012

We ate here while working in San Francisco. Bad Choice...

There was a greeter on the door who didn't greet us, just barked the price of the buffet at us, he couldn't even be bothered to put down his mobile phone (sorry cell phone) or get of his seat. his tracksuit was something special though, looked like something they would of worn in Miami Vice in the 80's.

We sat down at the table which was unclean and needed wiping down, the waitress approached and it was apparent that she couldn't speak English very clearly so we asked for a beer and was told that they don't serve beer, just soft drinks. We should of left by now...

We went over to the buffet stations and our visit took a turn for the worse, the food was discusting. It had obviously been sat for some time and was floating in it's own grease. The cold Pizza sat on top of the dishes was a nice touch though...

There was a big choice but none of the traditional Chinese foods, most of the dishes featured fish of some sort and everything else seemed overcooked, undercooked or in a dish that was not clean. I settled on some Egg rolls, Chicken Satay (which was labelled Chicken on Stick!) and some rice. it all tasted rank and I didn't go for a second plate...

You should avoid at all costs and do what we did straight afterwards... go to In and Out Burger.

“Got there late food was cold”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2012

A lot of food for a little money. The staff and their children hung out in the "other" room. Friendly atmosphere. Enormous menu choices. The sea food was good.
