As Asian buffets go this place is a winner. Food is good. The place is clean and the prices are reasonable.

Went on a Friday around 130 pm most everything in the steam tables was cold. Selection was poor. .seems like they fill the pans with various vegetables for show. Hot and sour soup had no taste. .if your in the mood for Chinese food go to the Valley (Grace Buffet ) (Fortune Buffet )or Painted Post (EnEn Buffet )

Lots of options to choose from. I really love their vegetables they have some of the best garlic green beans. They are continuously replenishing items so they are always very very fresh.

I've never had a good experience here. The place is nasty, the food is left out all day. The staff doesn't seem to care about your presence or their jobs. I won't come here any more, and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone

I've eaten here a couple of times now and let me tell you if you leave here hungry it's your own fault. Lots of selection and lots of food including desserts. Soda is included in your meal so eat and drink until you've had enough. Typical buffet fare but all tastes good that I sampled. Can't go wrong with General... More

I've been to Chinese Buffets all over America. Sometimes I've taken myself but more often than not its the choice of my hosts. It's an easy place to take sometime because they can choose whatever they want and the price is usually great for the amount of food one can consume. And besides that, they're fun, especially if you can... More

Have dined here several times over the years while visiting family in the area..Every time we come here the quality of the food and the service gets worse.
