If you want authentic Chinese tasting food that includes, crispy duck and pancakes, crispy Mongolian lamb, Kunpo and cashew nut chicken, beef in black bean sauce and banana fritters with golden syrup then don't eat here. If you want over processed, over cooked, sticky gelatinous glop then this is just the place for you. The attraction of this Restaurant is volume not taste. If you are the type of person who simply goes for quantity and not quality, then it will meet your needs. If however you are a discerning eater then stay away

It seems their previous ratings have got into their head. The buffet was sometimes empty and you would have to wait for more limiting your choices. Classic unintended consequence of success is when management starts taking things for granted because they have the volume. Well eventually the volume will thin out.

I've been going to this restaurant for years, and it has only gotten better and better. When the Chinese restaurant joined with the Mongolian BBQ, I didn't think it could get any better. Then they expanded in space (beautiful décor) and menu, to include Thai and Japanese. So, what can you expect? Everything is served buffet style here, and it's arranged in segments. On the right is the Mongolian BBQ, a stir fry in which you select the vegetable/meat ingredients and where you create your own sauce. The staff then puts it on a giant "wok" and stir fries it all. Next there's a small salad bar. Their peanut dressing is so amazing that I put it on my lo-mein. Then come two LONG rows of items from which to choose, from a variety of soups to an abundance of Oriental dishes. While there are plenty of dishes with meat, the vegetarian will love the choices too. Next, beyond the main courses, is a sushi train. It is quite literally a train of sushi that revolves around the area. All is wonderfully presented, with, of course, sliced ginger and wasabi. Finally, there is a dessert area, which includes such items as soft serve ice cream, almond cookies, cake, etc. This is the one area that I would say is "average." You have a good selection, but none are memorable. All in all, this is a terrific restaurant. It's been voted Williamsburg's top Oriental restaurant for a number of years, and it's worth the visit. I now live in Pennsylvania, but whenever I'm back in Williamsburg, I make sure I dine there!

I really like their sushi and the grill. The staff has always been friendly about helping in any way. The buffet is always warm or hot. They seem to be putting out fresh food.

The food was flavorless and overpriced. It was a buffet and most of the trays were empty the whole time we were there.
