This isn't a romantic or high class establishment, but it is clean, quick and the food is beyond what you find at most Chinese buffets.Friendly weight staff, and you leave very satisfied. It's the best food in town!

Have to say good selections on Buffet, Service good, Clean Family Atmosphere, $10 still a bargain for seniors. My favorite orders are Pork Egg Foo Yung and Pork Lo Mein, have to order Egg Foo Yung at least half hour ahead but worth the wait.

Good home style food. Children and family friendly. Very ample portions. Great selection of desert (homemade pies and cakes). I especially like their breakfast menu. Cell phones do not work in this restaurant.
