Great variety of traditional dishes, along with several "American" style things. Good variety of sushi and stir fry grill. Will definitely go back when we're in that area.

The experience was great all around! Food was fresh and the best for buffet that I have ever had! The wait staff was friendly and the entire place was clean.

I have had many times that I ate at Chinese restaurants and been disappointed wondering, "how do you ruin Chinese?" Not easy, but possible. This place gets it right and with a smile. Their aren't many places like it. The service is good, really minimal, as most do the buffet, you can also order from the menu but why would... More

Poor! Walked in at the start of dinner thinking we'd get fresh food. Instead, most items were ice cold since they just left lunch items out. Couldn't eat. They decided to change out as we were leaving. When we complained, they called me a "LIAR!" LOL. Never again!

Rude staff. We always try to be polite and was surprised when the staff made no attempt to be polite and even smirked when I told the host the ages of my children. (Both above the age limit for the kids menu, so I'm unsure why the animosity) The food wasn't good and it wasn't worth the price. We will... More

The hibachi grill is the best attraction, but don't expect it to get done fast. Not that it stays busy, the grill team is just slow as they are also the sushi team. The sushi is okay, but can be very heavy with rice.

Stopped here for lunch on a weekday, the buffet was pretty big but most of the food was less thanhot and much of it was dried out. They also charged dinner prices after 3 pm but none of the pans were being refilled with fresh food. The staff was friendly.

We were looking for a place to have lunch while on trip. My wife saw this and suggested that we eat there, since Oriental Food is one of my favorites. We got there about 1 PM, figured the lunch crowd was over. There wasn't many people there, so figured we had hit it correctly. The buffet, was very poorly stocked,... More

Unlike other reviewers, I cannot say this was a disaster. It wasn´t maybe the very best place where I´ve had a chinese buffet, but it was good overall. I went there with my family and everything was rightly cooked, my stepdad loved the crab legs. I loved the desserts :)
