By far the best oriental in San Marcos. Most days are menu based, but have a buffet on Sundays? Much better than larger "Buffet" style oriental restaurants.

Not a very good one, but it feels like home made. Veggies were a bit over coocked, in my opinion. But generally speaking is good for the price. The tea is nice

Prefer buffet at IH 35 and 12 North access road where I go every week and get what we like to- go. Large to-go containers gives us 2 meals.

Short staffed only one wait person in a large space, hit it on a really bad night. Had visited this place many times in the past but over 8 years, and it was very good and had lots of energy, not so much now.

This is a quiet, mom and pop type restaurant. There are locals who love this place and told me about it. I came in for the buffet which was well priced (under $10) and is offered only on Sunday. The food was super fresh and...More
