They have a great variety of food. To save money use their takeout option. They charge per pound. Then if you have leftovers you have lunch the next day! : )

The food is just what you'd expect from a $8 lunch buffet. I work for a property preservation co. And do a LOT of drywall repair and mold remediation due to leaky roofs. The hallway to the restrooms has black mold on the outside of the wall, all the way down, meaning that behind the drywall is a nightmare for... More

This buffet used to be one of the greatest and busiest until 2002. It kinda went down hill. The food is becoming too plain or too over saucy. It's just a typical Chinese buffet now. It's nice because it's quiet and less commotion. There's lots of customers but the noise isn't too loud. Go here for a quieter buffet. People... More

A good variety, and because there are so many customers, the food doesn't sit and get old & crusty. One of the best buffets for the value definitely.

I don't usually leave bad reviews for restaurants, I would only give a 1-star rating if the food was bad AND they personally offended me. They get a 2. I would say this is the worst Chinese Buffet type restaurant I have visited in the twin cities. My wife and I both agreed immediately on this. The "Chinese" food was... More

The usual Panda fare but a nice setting and all very tasty as expected. Panda servings are ample and I would go back.

First off, I've been going to this restaurant for about 10 years and I still love it! They have a decent variety of "Chinese" and American food, and do some excellently. I know I always go for their red chicken sticks! The buffett includes free soft drinks and varieties of desserts. The owner that usually works there doesn't speak a... More

Visited twice in 2011, both visits were atrocious. Dirty plates, dried up food, dirty silverware, grumpy service. Years ago, this was a decent buffet place, but I dont know how it went downhill so fast. The last time I went in 2012, there were barely anybody there, and for good reason. The food selection was disgusting, most of it looked... More
