Found hair in food. Alot of the food seemed old. Looks run down on inside and out. Felt like i was in prison with the warden watching us eat the whole time. Never again.

We do go here sometimes for lunch-great hot-sour soup. However, repeatively the buffet items are cool-to cold. This includes the chicken dishes on several of the hot serving tables. Lots of choices but really do not like cool temperature food. Service normally is very good.

I went in here looking for a good Chinese buffet . found it! But the big surprise was the tasty shredded beef tacos.... Similar to barbacoa. Delicious! Best tacos I've found in Iowa not on a food truck.

Nice large selection and hibachi, too. The peanut chicken was the best I have ever had. Coconut shrimp was perfect. Very good service. No complaints and it was under 10 dollars.

Can handle one for lunch or 25 for dinner. Everyone can find great food here. They have good rolls and a Mongolian grill. Cold foods and really good ice cream. They fixed the place up (bathrooms ect.). That's always good. They do a great job....More

They have good selection of Asian, some American food. Love their sushi and siomai or dumpling. However not all are hot or warmly served. Some looks like it's been sitting there for at least more than 30 minutes. Soup is great and warm; i love...More
