“2nd Best, But still pretty good !”
Reviewed July 11, 2012

We have been here several times, The food is not as good as sister Restaraunt,
which has better food "Main Kwong", but over all pretty good compared to other
chinease in the valley. They do have a nice dining area, salad is nice and a large
variety of very tasty food. A definate must visit, good for taking friends and family.
Owners are very nice, personnel are friendly and food is always fresh if you go
for buffett when they 1st open.

* Our fav is the Apple turnover w/vanilla Icecream, also incl in buffett price :)

“Not Bad”
Reviewed November 8, 2011

Decent food for the price! This Chinese restaurant has a buffet with many different selections that also include sallad and desserts. The staff is friendly, and the restaurant is usually, fairly clean.

“Okay - if you are not picky, just hungry”
Reviewed August 31, 2011

The buffet is adequate in terms of selection, perhaps a bit too much overbreaded, fried foods. Food does unfortuantely get stirred and restirred to "freshen" its appearance, even though it is gradually growing old. Also, more popular items are ofter scarce and minimal amounts restocked. Sushi is pretty good, but is left out a bit too long in some cases.

While the food is adequate, it is the staff that is problematic... while it is likely somewhat simply a cultural difference thing, the wait staff are not particularly welcoming, seem to hover (perhaps to make you feel like you are eating too much) and are just not pleasant... sometimes as a customer it seems we are an impostiion to them... backwards, is it not.

again, it is okay, if you are hungry and dont have real standards as to freshnest or flavor.
