The restaurant had standard Chinese cuisine with a wide variety of items. The best improvement would be the green beans. Maybe steam them more.

Nothing special. There was a decent selection but the food just was ok. Only one waiter & we never got tea refills. Restrooms were in dismal shape. This was our second trip & we probably won't try again.

We dined early on a Thursday evening before the crowds arrived. Good attentive service, a great selection of good quality food on display. The egg-drop soup was magnificent, this was followed by more delicious Chinese entree, and then a small but reasonable selection of deserts. Dinner for two under $26.

Had a great time with the food and servixe only complaint is when we went the was a total of 3 people working. The host and waiter did a greatt job with the amount of people, felt bad he didn't have any help. The other two employees were a cook and bus boy.

The gentlemen in our party enjoyed their meal more than I did. Buffet wasn't actually anything special & not really a big selection. The food was replenished often. They were short handed and it took awhile to get our drinks refilled.

Located off the interstate in a strip mall, next to a Hibberts Sports. Flat screens around, no sound. Popular during lunch. Good selection, the usual "acceptable by kiddos" fare also. They have the usual selections with a bit of variety and the weekends. The times we have been there, there haven't been many employees but I guess they aren't needed... More

Our family loves this place- there's something for everyone and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. The food is always fresh. We've been going here for years, and would recommend it to friends.

The food was bland, even the "spicy" variations. I know its a buffet, but a little effort goes a long way. I wanted the hot chili sauce, but the workers had it at their table and did not seem interested in if the customer wanted anything at all. The host wa the only good part of the whole thing, he...

Mediocre food served up lukewarm makes me wonder how this place continues to stay in business, much less pass the health inspections. Seriously, the food is cold. The atmosphere leaves much to be desired. I suppose that people continue to dine here because they love getting "all you can eat." I would go to the back and get the "Mongolian... More

When this buffet first opened, it was fairly good. Typical Chinese Buffet. But over the years it has really gone downhill. If a dish is empty, too bad, they are not going to re-stock. Their grease must be old or something because their fried food all has a weird taste to it. I'm not a fried food expert, but something... More
