Buffet is a way above the average chinese buffet. Good variety, all hot. I will definitely eat here again when coming through Raton.

We needed a quick stop on our drive to Texas, this place was perfect. A good selection of soups, meat and prawn main dishes and deserts. The food was hot and had some spicy flavours. The price was great.

We are snowbirds and we were returning home when we stayed overnight in Raton. This restaurant simply serves good food that is value priced, but nothing fancy. We have eaten here before, and we would eat here again.

I ordered take out from the buffet. Their selections were limited and the food was not very good which was surprising because the place was packed.

Reviewed as Asian Buffet please check that out, it's worth the time and trip to eat there. I have been there several times, lunch and dinner and it is always excellent. Very friendly staff and a great value.

Other than the usual fast food places, many of which are closed there appears to be little variety in dining choices for the traveler. My friend and I were desperately seeking a quick meal and then to get back on the road. We passed this restaurant, in front of a strip mall, surrounded by other eating establishments that were closed... More

We stopped here for lunch and found the service and the buffet excellent. All the food was fresh and well prepared. The Hot and Sour soup was very spicy but was tasty. There was a generous selection of many traditional chicken and beef dishes and the Asian zucchini and the fried rice were both very good. It was very reasonably... More

There were lots of patrons for lunch. We found the restaurant OK. Food nice but not outstanding. They have one counter of main courses, a side array of fruits, puddings and little sushi and a freezer with three tubs of ice cream. Restaurant could use a face lift inside (carpet, bathroom). I wanted water with lemon, no ice and got... More

I'm glad I tried the Asian Buffet on this trip to Raton. It's VERY reasonably priced, with a nice selection of items that were hot, fresh and well prepared. The service for seating, drinks and check-out was very good, and the server checked on me a couple of times to make sure all was well while I dined. The only... More
