Not a big buffet guy but their stuff if fresh and hot. Good turnover of food but not cheap. You might be just as well off to order off menu IMO. It’s an old spot but the staff is terrific. Enjoy!

Every time we come to Truro we make sure we have lunch here. If timing is right, we will come back the next day. The food is excellent -- great value -- great staff.

I've eaten here before and thought the food was fairly tasty. My wife and I decided to try the buffet. Wow. Most things were replaced slowly. The spring rolls a General Chow Chicken weren't bad. We noticed that the scallops were salty. I suggested we...More
