Always a treat to eat here. It is clean and the buffet is kept fully active. My favorites are the boiled shrimp, coconut shrimp and egg drop soup. I can eat low carb here with no problem. The kids ask to go here

This is by far the best Asian buffet I have ever seen. Plenty of choices and great variety. My son usually doesn't like Chinese food, but he chowed down on the rice and beef dishes.
Several choices of shrimp fried oysters, sushi choices galore made it hard to choose.
The salmon was huge and excellently prepared. The fish with mayo was absolutely delicious. All the traditional dishes were available and we'll prepared.
The waitress was attentive and kept the used dishes cleared. Drinks were kept full.
The price is somewhat above the normal, but well worth it.
The place is kept clean and the buffet well maintained.
Make sure you get here early, there is a little wait time.
