Stopped in for dinner. The buffet looked very good. They have it for lunch and dinner. We opted for Kung Pao chicken, General Tsao chicken and pork fried rice. They were all very well prepared. Plenty of food to feed 4 people.

Ok, I get the complaints of not enough variety in the buffet but sometimes more is not better - I’ve been to buffets with loads of variety and the quality didn’t match the quantity. How is that better? I was very pleasantly surprised by how...More
