The breaded chicken in my sesame chicken lunch combo was of exceedingly low quality.. It was stringy, dry, overcooked, overbreaded, rock-hard yet hollow, hard-to-digest garbage. I don't hold very high expectations, I wouldn't feed this to my dog.

Excellent food! When the food is prepared it is not saturated in soy sauce.. You can taste the true flavor of the food! Family owned, BYOB and relaxing environment!

This used to be a fun quick pretty good dinner place. convenient and acceptable. Tonight's food was greasy, unappetizing, and poorly presented. no taste but the grease. And in a restaurant that had just 2 tables occupied the service was awful. never again.

I have passed this place for almost 10 years without stopping but we decided to give it a try since I wanted Chinese food and did not want a buffet, we were both glad we stopped. We visited on a rainy Saturday night just before...More

A quality place 9/10 times, with little mishaps now and then. Sometimes the sweet and sour chicken tastes like it was fried twice, or I discover fried instead of white rice in my bag. Even with those occurrences I find myself back once a week,...More

Small buffet that packs a punch. Everything is always fresh and delicious. Staff very friendly with the prices second to none in the area. There are some bigger buffet places around but try finding one that comes close to matching their service, price, and taste.
