We visit this place a lot hubby really likes it. The buffet is pretty big with plenty of choices and usually kept up pretty good. We always try to go when they are busy so everything is fresh. This is the best Chinese buffet in the area.

My family and I live in the area and this is one of our go to spots. The kids love it! I didn't like sushi until I began trying it here. There is always a large assortment and it is always fresh. The bar includes a wide variety of both Chinese and American cuisine. The staff is always very friendly... More

King crab legs, shrimps, clams, steaks, sushi and many other dishes. For a price of $10.99, I think it is a very good deal. Food were fresh and deep fried chicken was excellent. King crab legs were very fresh, Will go again if I am in the area.

If the food wasn't good I would rate this establishment 1-star. The wait staff are racist and rude! I have not encountered a decent waiter yet. They don't refill drinks nor do they check on tables where people of color are seated. Once seated the waiter disappears and never return, until the check comes. Several waiters gave me and my...

I enjoyed the fresh grilled meats and veggies. The food bar had a great assortment of Chinese food and food from other cultures/nationalities, including local favorites.. Everything was hot and fresh. They even had fried frog legs which I always say "tastes like chicken". This is a great family restaurant with fast and friendly service. The prices are very reasonable.

We normally bypass this on out trips to Cumberland - it's in a strip mall and looks like just another Chinese restaurant. On a fluke we stopped. It's great - large selection of Chinese as well as American food. The sushi bar has a great assortment. Tasted great and was fresh. They even have a grill / Mongolian BBQ. My... More

I have been here many times with some of my employees and it will always fill you up. There is quite the selection of food, plus a to order hibachi and a small sushi selection. It is a typical chinese buffet, with all of the standards. They do have a scoop your own ice cream section that is better than... More
