This is a chinese buffet with seemingly endless islands of buffet items ranging from soups (hot and sour, etc.) to a wide variety of standard items including fish and other seafood, meats, sweet and sour, sushi and sashimi, and desserts etc. Cannot pinpoint a single item that was an outstanding taste treat or superbly prepared - it is a buffet with food sitting under warming lights, after all. The sashimi seemed quite fresh and tasty. Kinda fun, if you are hungry and not too selective about your meal. I enjoyed the variety of food and reasonable price. Lots of room for customers, including one or more private dining rooms.

I have been going here since they opened but only for lunch so cannot speak to dinners and weekends. For weekdays however, this is hands down the best deal. There is a great selection of food including sushi, a hibachi grill where they will cook the items you pick out yourself, seafood, hot and cold foods & an ample selection of desserts. All for under $10 including your drink. The place is always packed for lunch and as a result you can depend on the food always being fresh. They are attentive to foods needing to be replaced so unlike some places that purposely don't fill their expensive items frequently enough, you don't need to worry about that here.
The staff are always very friendly and you can tell there are MANY regular patrons here. My issue is always eating so much , I'd rather go home to nap instead of returning to work!!!

This is by far the best Chinese all you can eat buffet at an incredibly affordable price and super friendly, warm, and genuine staff. The best part is the quality of the food...good seasoning, well cooked food. The owner and her staff always go above and beyond to accommodate us...I only wish they can be closer but I have to say that it is always well worth the trip up north.
