4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014

We had never been here, but heard good reviews from others. Will definitely be back as the service and price and selection of buffet items were great!

“Travelling through to Denver”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2014

Tripped into this place from my GPS. Have had dinner at many Chinese Buffets, and this is in my top 3. Mongolian BBQ was great. Fresh cooked in front of you. Also, many shrimp dishes when we were there. Great food at a decent price.

“OMG!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2014

Very impressive buffet, came recommended by a local store clerk.

The location is about a mile off of I-80, going towards town. It's in the same shopping center as Wal Mart, next door to the Cold Stone Creamery.

The food rocks! Great selection, hot, fresh, and full trays. This, on a Friday evening (6:30 pm or so) for $9.95.

The building is modern, and the (men's) bathroom was clean.

A real surprise was the patrons. As a solo traveler, I'm always pretty much the invisible man. Tonight, as people walked by, they smiled, said "hi", some even chatted a bit. I might add that not one of them seemed drunk or high! Strange people, these Cornhuskers....

For a negative, I'm going to have to work a little, LOL!

As we all know, Chinese buffet desserts leave a lot to be desired. This one actually had an ambrosia that was very tempting to the eye...but ended up being a canned fruit mediocrity. There was also a fruit salad, but I was both too full from the great food and too disappointed by the ambrosia to try it.

“Love to eat here.”

We have always had good experiences there. They have lots of room so there is not a waiting time to be seated.

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2013

we actually heard this place was good but..... we tried to stop by and they had just closed and we saw 4 employees at a booth and guess what they were in there smoking in the restaurant... i dunno if that kinda stuff is ok in north platte but im pretty sure its against health codes so i can only assume how sanitary they are when they handle food
