“Great Selection”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

I tried this restaurant last weekend when we were looking for a Chinese buffet. The selection was large and the option to have food prepared fresh while you wait was something that I wish I had tried. There was every type of shrimp you might want as well as salad, soup, fruit and dessert. The desserts were not very good with the exception of the apple strudel which was hot and delicious. I'd give it a try if you like buffets.

“Going Downhill”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2013

A couple of years ago this Chinese buffet redid the interior and really upgraded the food quality. We've been regular customers, but on our last few visits we've encountered empty trays that stayed empty throughout our stay. Perhaps not coincidentally, the food quality of what was available has dropped from an A to a C-. Fresh, crisp preparations are instead either overcooked or so soggy (such as the coconut shrimp) to the point it's like mush. and The Mongolian grill is still good but not good enough to encourage us to return anytime soon.

“Horrible!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013

We were looking for an Asia Buffet that offered a variety of our favorites....we could care less about American food being offered. Had driven by this one many times, so decided to give it a try on a Sunday evening.

I've not tasted more bland, greasy, yucky food in my life. Unappetizing in every sense of the word. Will never go back!

“Good experience!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2013

Having lived in Clearwater for 6 years, have never eaten here until today at the recommendation of friends. We are always in search of good Chinese food after living in California prior to moving to Florida and we were not disappointed. We have visited many "Chinese" restaurants in the Clearwater area throughout the years with poor results!
This place should please everyone! Recent rennovation, very clean, good service.

Large variety of foods! I truly enjoyed the Hibachi selection. Choose your own entree-chicken, steak, shrimp, variety of vegetables, noodles etc. and bring to Hibachi grill to have the Chef prepare for you. Mine was excellent! Large Sushi Bar which I don't eat but it looked to be very extensive and freshly prepared.

I have an allergy to MSG and asked prior to entering if MSG was used in preparation of the food and was told what foods to avoid. They have a large variety of food including shrimp in all varieties (peel and eat), coconut, garlic. Many chicken dishes as well, peanut shrimp was great! Full salad bar, numerous soups, and desserts!

Great value, lunch prices different than dinner about a $3.00 difference, don't know if the menu choices are the same for lunch as we went for dinner which was $12.99 on the weekend, Monday-Thursday prices are lower for dinner but it was sure worth the $12.99. Wine, Beer and Saki available also at very reasonable prices. Good web-site and coupons available on-line for 10% off.

Will definitely return again!

“Clean, Fresh, Cook to Order and Fast Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2013

Cook to order stir fry, Sushi, and your typical Chinese fair. Clean and prompt service. Wide variety of items and they are always replenishing the dishes so the food is not old and dried out. A little of everything: Soups, Salads, Dim Sum, Fruit, etc. A very good lunch spot.
