Ate at this restaurant on a Saturday around 5 pm. The food was very good. There was 4 adults in our party and we were all pleased. I'm not a sushi person but the other couple was very satisfied with the sushi. I highly recommend this restaurant.

This Chinese buffet restaurant opened in early May, 2018 in the "Walmart" shopping center on Hwy. 70 in Clayton, NC. The new owners have decorated the place in a sophisticated red and black color scheme with new carpet and comfortable seating---a mixture of booths and tables. There are three main buffet bars, one large salad/dessert buffet bar, and a sushi bar as well as an ice-cream cooler. About the food: The lunch buffet was $7.25 for all you can eat. The drink was extra. They had most of the standards you see on most Chinese Buffets, and everything I tried was delicious. I did not have anything bad or displeasing. The food was very-good and they made a point to include things like snow-peas, mushrooms, bamboo shoots, water chestnuts and other traditional ingredients that cheaper restaurants eliminate. Some of the choices available: Sweet and Sour Chicken, Sesame Chicken, General Tso's Chicken, Pepper Chicken, Teriyaki Chicken. Beef choices included a Pepper Beef that was amazingly tender and flavorful, They had hot and sour soup and egg drop soup, both fried egg rolls and crispy spring rolls, chicken Teriyaki on skewers, Fried Chicken Wings, Lo Mein , Fried Rice, and Steamed White Rice, and sauteed thin rice noodles. There was something that looked like a broiled white fish (I am assuming it was Tilapia) and they had one shrimp stir-fry on the main buffet and also a mound of cold steamed shrimp on the salad buffet bar. There were sauteed mushrooms, a Chinese Mixed-Vegetable dish that had perfectly sauteed zucchini, and several dishes with broccoli. "Triple Szechuan Delight" had a variety of proteins in a spicy Szechuan sauce. Other items included BBQ Spareribs, Steamed Dumplings, Crab Rangoon, Stuffed Mushrooms, Pizza Slices, French Fries and there was also a Chop Suey selection. The dessert bar had a variety of choices including lots of fruit and a lot of sauces in "squirt" bottles for those who love extra condiments. I am not a sushi eater, but the sushi bar had a sushi chef behind the bar actively making sushi and plating it up. There was a variety of sushi to choose from so I think this restaurant has a little bit of something for everyone. The staff was friendly, efficient and gave excellent service. There were people coming out of the kitchen and cleaning up the buffet area and adding new food the entire time I was there---they are really making an effort to ensure the food is fresh and presentable and that the restaurant is clean. I give it high marks for having a spotless carpet and keeping up with making sure the dining room and buffet areas are pristine. There is plenty of parking as well. They also serve beer and wine as well as tea, soft drinks and traditional Chinese tea. BUFFET HOURS: Lunch Buffet: 11 am-3:30 pm Dinner Buffet: 3:30 pm-9;30pm. Lunch Buffet $7.25, Dinner Buffet $9.99 and Sunday All-Day $9.99. Buffet Take-Out/To-Go is priced at $4.95 per pound.
