This is probably the best Chinese food deal around. Before I die I want to know how to make their versions of Beef with Broccoli, Garlic Chicken, and Twice Cooked Pork because they are absolutely insane. The sauces have so much flavor on every dish here it just doesn't seem possible to be able to put that much flavor into... More

Love the jalapeño chicken and the garlic chicken. The rice and noodles are always good and the buffet is always well stocked and hot! Quick service even on the days they are packed. They are humorous too....always leave with a smile on my face even though I feel like I have just eaten a wile cow or three chickens....

This is a fairly typical Chinese buffet location, but it is clean and well lit which is not the norm here. Strip Mall location but convenient to many parts of Birmingham as it is just off I-65.

Two of us ate the lunch buffet at Mr Wangs Chinese restaurant. Buffet had plenty of items to choose from and all were hot and appeared fresh. Easy to get to, close to highway 65 next to Walmart and tmobile. We will come back again for sure.

I think this is one of the better chinese buffets in the are. Good variety of food. Has the usual stuff like general tso, beef and broccoli and hot and sour soup. Also has a couple of other things like spicy cabbage and spicy chicken dishes that are outstanding.

Knowing what order is half the Battle. Wait staff can guide you. Dont order the American Chinese dishes. The authentic dishes will make you will bring you back weekly.

I eat out at alot(all) of the Chinese restaurants in the Birmingham -Hoover area. I'm also not the pickiest eater, but when I came in at 7:30 pm on a Friday and left in 15 minutes because not a single thing was fresh, there is a problem. The food had not been changed for at least three hours. It was,... More

I've been coming to this restaurant for over 20 years and always considered it to be one of the best in town. I don't get here as often now that I moved about 20 miles away but decided to come back when I was in the area with a friend. We were not disappointed! The buffet isn't the largest one... More

I think one of us got food poisoning here from the sesame chicken. Lots of vomiting in the middle of the night, and nothing else that made sense. I also ate some of the sesame chicken, but nowhere near as much, and I had some severe gastro-intestinal disturbance as a result, though no vomiting. two others in our party who... More

I came with my family. They got our drinks out quickly but the wings weren't to good and the rice was soggy. Except they had very good Sesame chicken. Probably will not be coming back.
