Lunch today was really a scouting mission to see if the place was clean and worth eating in. We were sitted at out table immediately, drink orders taken, and while I was checking out the rest room, delivered. Restrooms were sparkling clean! Buffet tables had a crew of four continuously wiping up any spills, things seemed to be well in hand. I did complain as someone had spilled a "oily substance" on the rug leading into the back room, and every time anyone walked intop the main room they left a track of oil - very dangerous - on the floor. A "janitor" came right out mopped, and scrubbed the spot. We felt the food was very good, tasty, hot, and flavorful. Ice cream now has a "server" said to many people making a big mess. This worked out well. Was taken back with "Count Chocola" as a topping.

On our visit on Friday April19th, we brought a large group of senior citizens for lunch. Arrangements for seating had been made more than 24 hours before our visit. They never accomodated our dissabilities in any way. We requested tables be put together and leave chairs away from the table for citizens in wheelchairs. This was not done.
There was no assistance or offers for assistance with going around the buffet or anything.
Our so called waitress "Emily" was rude, spoke in her language in a derogatory manner, and was blatently disrespectful to our seniors and staff members. Our Residents cherish moments when they are able to visit the community. This experience was traumatic to say the least. I would advise anyone reading this review to please support another restaurant and forget about this so called establishment. The owners should be ashamed of themselves for allowing people such as "Emily" to be working with members our our community. And I would be ashamed to claim myself as "manager" of this establishment also. He was absolutely no help or offered to correct the issues or apologize for anything. Its a shame that these people are living in our community and thriving off of our business and treat us this way. They are giving Vietnamese people a terrible name. Shame on you. And please rest assured we will never step foot in your establishment ever again. And I look forward to seeing your establishment going out of business and closing its doors. Ocala deserves better. Once again. Shame On You, and how you treat the elderly...... Nothing more to say.

We sat down, got our drinks ordered and got our plates. We were sitting maybe 5 minutes and the hostess guy walked by our table with his ticket book and smacked a palmetto roach off the wall next to us and stepped on it into the carpet. Then he turned to us and said "sorry" and walked away. This did not help our appetite at all.

A really good Chinese buffet in Ocala - good choices - ingredients are fresh. Lots of oysters on the dinner menu. Soem of my neighbors are regulars for the oysters.
