“Delicious!”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

I really enjoy the variety of a buffet, especially a Chinese buffet and this one really fit the bill. There were so many different things to try and there wasn't anything that I tried that was cooked badly. I would recommend to go there to anyone . The food is good and the price is right.

“Did not enjoy this buffet at all”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

Went here for lunch on a Sunday afternoon. Thought a Chinese buffet would be a good place to take a diverse group - two kids 10 & 12, an 18 year old college student, and two adults who are vegetarian. Staff was not at all friendly. Had to pay in advance which isn't preferable, but understandable. Staff pretty much took our money and didn't want anything else to do with us. Sit anywhere, no explanation of where the drinks were, weren't told it was self-service. Buffet was not well stocked, variety was not at all appealing. Typically Chinese restaurants offer plentiful vegetarian options - this one did not. What food we could eat sank to the bottom of our stomach. Even the 18 yr old who will eat just about anything was not impressed. Definitely will not be going here again.

“Good deal / many choices”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

I love the variety here and the food is generally good. They keep up with keeping items filled up. The only thing about this restaurant that I don't like is that the carpet looks like it needs a thorough deep cleaning.

“Excellent Food, Lots of Choices”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Everything we ate was excellent, even the pizza. Lots to choose from and the hot items were hot and the cold items were cold. Will go back often.

“skip this one”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

We were passing through this area and could not find a place for lunch. Our AAA guide listed this restaurant in this town. We needed a place with close parking for handicap accessibility. This restaurant fit that need. We arrived at the end of the normal lunch rush which may have been part of the issue although it was still very busy. The floor was dirty and the restaurant appeared not well kept up. This is probably the worst Chinese food I've ever had any place. They were very sow to refill empty items. The ice tea tasted very bad. The staff were unhelpful and did not want to answer questions. We had a meal and were able to resume our trip with no after effects.
