“Turn and run (away)”
Reviewed May 22, 2014 via mobile

Well that was awful! Proof that Rhode Islanders don't get out enough (four stars? Have you never eaten GOOD food?
This restaurant did about 25% Chinese and 75% of of American food (fries, nuggets, cheese sticks, pizza etc). Neither of which did they do well!!!
I am NOT much of a desert person but I ate my fill to compensate for the lack of entrees that were edible! Even so everything on the dessert bar but the tapioca pudding and jello were definitely defrosted. I have never left and a restaurant without paying a bill but I honestly considered packing up the two kids to do so!
I should have been tipped off of by my 6-year-old who refused to use a dirty plate from the get go!

“Worth the trip!!!”
Reviewed December 8, 2013

I loved it. They had fresh food, very clean, great choices. The price is great! Not the best place for sushi but everything else was awesome. Chicken wings, boneless ribs, lo mein, shrimp and clams...I could go on, but I am pleasantly stuffed!!!

“Unbeatable value good food”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

This place has a wide range of food at a very reasonable price, staff are friendly and kind.
Sushi is good if you come at the start of lunch but can can be dry.
Monday and Wednesday are cheaper days.

This buffet is consistently good. Everything tastes fresh and hot and delicious..from the Mongolian pork to the spring rolls to the fried plantain. So inexpensive too.
