We went for the dinner buffet on a Saturday afternoon around 3:30, just before it got busy. Very good, fresh food, friendly staff and it was clean. We will go back soon!

This place was aweful! My husband, son and I went apparently they only serve Todd fresh food during peak house definitely do not go here after or before because you will get left overs from 3 hours ago.

Though they have lots of choices, food is not that great. The temperature of the food is too low and the trays are not kept filled. Crab rangoon wasn't even close to what you can get at Asiana in Asheville - wish it wasn't over 1 and 1/2 hours away. The worst part were tears in the seating, cobwebs on the outside of the window which looked like it hadn't been washed all year. If these things are let go, I can imagine what might be let go in the kitchen. Yes, parking is fine but no prices listed. We went Saturday afternoon with friends at 4 p.m. and were charged over $56 not including tip for the 4 buffets, 3 sodas and 1 lemonade. I guess we will have to go back to Hibachi Grill in Johnson City next time or else take the drive to Asheville to Asiana.

This has got to be one of the best Chinese Buffets I have ever eaten. The choices here were never ending- Sushi included. Everything looked and tasted so fres and the atmosphere was relaxed and comfortable whether your were a couple or the whole family-Grandma and Granpa included! The price was really reasonable. It is very easy to get to and to park. Great evening.

Love to eat lunch there. Wide variety of food at a very reasonable price. Lots of good chicken. Wish they had a few more vegetables.
