“Mmm Sunday buffet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013 via mobile

Best general tso's that I've had. Pretty good sesame chicken, egg rolls, crab rangoon. The lunch specials are a good value. Tje last time I had their lunch it was 5.25 for your choice from about 10 dishes, crab rangoon or egg roll and soup. It may not come as piled up as other places but for me the quality is worth getting less. Dinner is definitely higher than some other places around and we have a very smal budget for eating out so we wont eat dinner here, but we occasionally go to the sunday buffet. Its so good and so worth the price. I'll list as much as I can remember thats usually on the buffet: crab rangoon, egg roll, onion rings, sugar covered donuts, general tsos chicken, sesame chicken, mongolian beef, salt and pepper fish, almond cookies, jello, some brightly colored cakes, fresh orange slices.
Theres more but can't think off the top of my head. Its not a huge spread, but it makes up for variety in quality.

“Great Lunches”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

Excellent lunch menu, Comes with soup (excellent hot & sour) and appetizer. Try back side of menu with some unique dishes - Springfield Spring, War Bar Chicken, Triple Delight, etc. This is a regular lunch spot for me.
