First time visiting. Great atmosphere and food is very good. Staff is friendly and they pay close attention to your drink. Price is great. I did not eat anything with a bad taste. Very small buffet but the quality made up for quality.

The food is very good, there is a wide variety of food on the buffet.I tried a little of everything and it all was excellent. Waitress is very polite and soon as your drink was empty she was there asking if you would like another.

There is a vast assortment of delicious Chinese food as well as a sushi bar. The soups are very tasty, and ice cream is provided for a free dessert. The staff is attentive and friendly at this family restaurant.

How in the world can a town that consists of people of mostly European backgrounds manage to have FOUR (count 'em, 4) Chinese Restaurants??? This place started out life as a Gas Station back when the mall was first built. After it bombed at that,...More
