We were hungry and this was on price point. The hot foods were excellent. The sushi was good (we live near a big city with great sushi so our standards may be higher). The desserts could use some improvement, a bit dried out, but that...More

Carlsbad, NM is not a foodie Mecca . It has spectacular caverns. It has an incredible number of new, clean motels and it has lots of oil related industry. It does not, however, have a bounty of great restaurants. When faced with little internet guidance,...More

We decided to try this place because it was close to where we were staying and it looked inviting from the outside. Since it was packed with cars, we were hoping for a good experience but got an average one at best. I find buffets...More

What a generous selection from sushi to shellfish to noodles, and dessert. Affordable and filling. Had a very active day at White Sands and I was ready to eat at least a couple of plates worth of food. You can stay or take food out...More

After driving 5 hours to get to Carlsbad, we were pretty darn hungry. Dragon China was a very good choice, everything I tried was good. Don't expect gourmet Chinese, but all around good chicken and beef dishes plus sushi are fresh and not overcooked.

After 11 days of automobile sightseeing throughout the Southwest, we couldn't face another burrito, no matter how good. So, despite some mixed Trip Advisor reviews, we decided to have lunch here so we could eat some much-needed vegetables. While my husband's favorite business lunch has...More

Great food! Everything was fresh and good. We came at 12:30 so it was lunch time and they had a good crowd. Sushi was very good. Place was clean people nice. Surprising for us after reading some of the reviews.

They now have sushi. I think their buffet is good and the sushi makes it even better. I also like that they are open late.

Do they offer a discount for a group of 30 - 40 Seniors? Is a reservation needed?

I'm sorry, but I just don't know about groups. Wish I could help.
What is the price of the buffet for lunch and for dinner. Is there a discount for Senior Ciizens? Do they take reservations (we will have a party of 30-40)?

No, reservations needed. I have only gotten the buffet once, usually just take out. Sorry. With that size of crowd, I would think they would take reservations. 575-887-1818 is their #.
