We wanted a quick Chinese meal. It was quick, though "bland" seemed to be the operative word. We likely won't return. There are certainly much better options in the area.

Great take out Chinese. The employees are very friendly and service is quick. I love the Szechuan shredded pork is my favorite. Call ahead and it will be ready when you get there.

You go in and they ask how many & it's $9.99 a person. They had enough I liked for two plates & I walked away stuffed. Make sure you get a new plate before going back. The $9.99 includes a fountain drink. They do takeaway too. I don't get to Salt Lake that often, but I'd give them another look.

We have eaten here several times in the last few years and keep coming back even with grandkids because of the value. There is a large buffet style selection, which includes fresh peel shrimp and some sushi! It is a good value where everyone should be able to find enough that they prefer.

Everyone who's discussed this restaurant with me agrees that the service is terrible and the food not a lot better. It was very disorganized when we were there. We were only picking up a meal we had pre-ordered (for two), but it took a looooong time to get it. We thought of giving the another chance until we talked to... More

This was a new choice for me since the place I was planning to eat lunch was closed I have eaten a great deal of Chinese food and have various dishes which are good indicators of the restaurant overall rating. The Hot and Sour Soup was much better than the average Chinese buffet and nearly everything else was so good... More

Authentic Asian cuisine, with authentic, courteous Asian staff. Always clean, quality of food is consistent, and pretty good. Well, actually it's more like the a la carte items are always quite good, and the buffet is OK. The restaurant is a little tacky and there's not much ambiance -- it's just a big square room with cafeteria-style long tables --... More

When we went to this buffet we were not impressed in a positive fashion. The food was cold and well picked over, the line was not maintained. Upon leaving we all decided it was a first and last time experience for us.

High end buffet--they own a regular restaurant with the same name that is NOT a buffet. They know what they are doing. Clean, good service and good, fresh food.

Typical Chinese buffet. A lot of selections, but nothing special. I think the potstickers were probably the best of very average offerings. They are reasonably priced, and the service is friendly.
