Before they moved to this new building (years ago) they seemed to have had better food. Last time I was here I couldn't find anything that looked or tasted all that great.

This Chinese Restaurant has been located here for many years, though now in a new building.

There is a very extensive buffet with a great variety, including "American" items for those who don't want chinese (good for youngsters) and a salad bar.

In addition to the buffet, there is a Mongolian grill with a large selection of vegetables, meats and sauces for those who wish to design their own meal which could be vegetarian. Super tasty, hot and fresh, and included in the buffet price.

To finish off the meal, they have a nice dessert section with soft ice creams, cakes, cookies and other items.

We have eaten here for many years and never had a bad experience. The owners, Mr. and Mrs. Wong are always friendly and the staff (mostly long time employees) continuously circulate, filling glasses and removing empty plates and bowls, always with a smile.

I have heard there is a regular menu, but have never ordered off it as it is hard to resist the buffet!

This is a great place for Chinese in Eastern Tennessee, you will not be disappointed.

Pretty typical American Chinese restaurant. Big buffet... high throughput. They do have a stir fry grill in the back where you can select your own ingredients and have them cooked to order. Very clean. Have not ever ordered from menu or "off" menu, but hear it is good. Go/Don't Go... either way.
