“Great buffet”
Reviewed January 31, 2013 via mobile

I would say that this is the best Chinese buffet around. They have a very good selection, all the basics that you would be looking for. The food is fresh and flavorful. I would recommend it. The atmosphere is quite dated as all Chinese buffets are.

“You won't be disappointed”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

Food was well-stocked and flavorful. Spare ribs were just like they used to be decades ago when they were really good. The service is pleasant and mostly pretty prompt. Buffet is well stocked and fresh. Will go back again.

“Local favorite”
Reviewed December 22, 2012 via mobile

Good variety of Chinese plus sushi. They also have king crab legs. Good turnover of food so it doesn't sit long. Dessert is typical , nothing to write home about. Get there early to avoid the crowd. Help is pretty attentive for drink refills.

“My go-to pick”
Reviewed August 13, 2012 via mobile

This is my go to restaurant. Local, always fresh food, good service, never a long wait and prices are resonable. Have been going here for years. Love the crab legs, shrimp, soup, cream cheese wontons, string beans and the tofu eggplant. All the food is very tasty. They also have sushi, not sure how it is becuase I am not a big fan of sushi. Soft serve non dairy ice cream, fresh fruit and other types of desserts.

“Good food and easy service”
Reviewed January 30, 2012

Great Buffet, great options, not too expensive. The sushi isn't very extensive, but you can get some salmon sashimi and tuna. They also have a crab legs, which is always a big hit at the buffett's.
