Popped in for some take-out from the buffet. The pan fried dumplings were among some of the best around. Not the industrial strength commercial ones you usually see, but thin, delicate skins and tasty filling. That's all I can assess, will go back soon to...More

Went here because of ad in hotel directory. Claimed 200 dishes to choose from, not even 20. What was available was cold and disgusting! I'd rather eat road kill then go back there! Should have checked TripAdvisor

Food at best is room temperature and of poor quality. Restaurant interior is run down. Stay clear...spend your money elsewhere.

Looking for Chinese buffet near hotel and this came out. Not a wide selection of items,the food was ok, nothing really stood out. Wait service was ok. The cashier seemed like we were bothering her at checkout. Likely a once a year visit.

It was not bad, it was filling and it was fast... I always get the steamed shrimp at these places so it is a bargain and it was not bad... Good spot to eat in the area of the high way and Red roof inn..

The fried shrimp was delicious. The vegetable fried rice and vegetable lo mien was perfect. The cheese wonton were a little oily but tasty. Lunch is reasonable; dinner is higher, by about $5 p.p. more, but at dinnertime they have FRIED CATFISH. My husband can...More
