“Food is very fresh and varied”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

Best chinese buffet in gainesville. Many different chinese buffets were in this same location but none match the quality of this one. Food ranges from roast beef that you slice yourself, sushi bar, mongolian barbecue that is made in front of you as well as lots of varieties of soups, chicken, meat, seafood and desserts . If you go with someone who doesn't like chinese food, there are lots of choices too. Prices for lunch are around $8 - seafood and roast beef included. Dinner is between $10.99, $11.99,$12.99 depending on if it is a weekend or weekday. On New Years it was $12.99. Take out is weighed for price. Dinner includes seafood and ribs that they don't have for lunch. Most food choices are the same for dinner and lunch. If you like king crab it is $4.99 extra for all you can eat. Tea is free with meal. Very large dining area so you can even have a large group.
I was there again last night and there was a line to get in. It seems like Sat. Nites are more crowded.
