Went for lunch on a Monday about 1:30. Very small buffet and many of the items were either gone or almost empty and not very appetizing to look at. Beverages are extra. Old and dated decor. Mostly Chinese food. Dirty floor.

The food was dried out from sitting on the buffet too long. The Chinese was "American Chinese"--not authentic or creative. At least the service was good.
