We went early and unfortunately most of the food in the trays was obviously left over from lunchtime. But good value.

Also has pizza and other choices for those who don't care for Asian. Eat here almost every time I'm in town.

Went on a busy weekday for lunch. Everyone at the table got buffet except me. I ordered chicken fried rice and wonton soup. Wonton soup was rich and delicious as it should be. Fried rice was a bit not well seasoned, basically chicken, white rice and a few carrots & peas and very overcooked egg. Think there are other Chinese restaurants in town that are better.

This use to be a Chinese restaurant on the list for those in the surrounding areas and beyond to get authentic tasting Chinese food. Not anymore (and hasn't been for a while). In the early 90's the buffet was small and they concentrated on what you ordered. Now it is not much bigger of a buffet but the food has increasingly went downhill. Not to mention the "take-out" food is not freshly made--they scoop it off the buffet. It should be made to order. The food is always lukewarm to cold and clearly left-over from lunch. The most daunting thing is the fact that the food is made by Hispanic co-workers and it shows as there is no flare for concentration of Asian ingredients... the kitchen can be seen from certain booths and you can tell there is no Asian cook in the back. This makes it near-impossible to duplicate the taste of authentic Chinese food. They are always cutting up and shouting things that make it seem like a happening place back there--but not for us out front! The bar also has a considerable amount of Mexican food on the buffet. I like Mexican food but not at a "Chinese" buffet. A Few Things: The food ALWAYS has a glaze over it. The General Chicken is watery and tough. The Hot and Sour Soup tastes like watery metal from the ladle--it needs a thicker broth. The Egg-Rolls are frozen and the meat inside old tasting. The rice--crunchy (!) and the Fried Rice is still white... the Lo Mein as if it came out of a common-place spaghetti package. The Sweet and Sour Chicken bits of crunchy fat from the fryer--not plump and with white meat. The ice cream scoop left in a watery grave for the next person to pick it up. It must also be cautioned that the dinning room and restrooms are filthy and need updating. The carpet has stains all over it and the tables and booths are sticky. The restrooms have patchy paint-jobs covering up skeezy numbers written there and it smells. Those that go here must be grasping on to what it was in yesteryear. It should not take much to realize a short drive just 15 more minutes up the road to Asiana or Shogun would be eons better. Or the sit-down very under-rated "Fortune Asian" across town. Lon Sen needs help--BAD. The friendly duo in the front truly needs to turn their attention to the food to revamp it and KEEP IT authentic Chinese or get a Chef to teach new recipes. A MAJOR clean-up should ensue. Don't go here. Instead send them a note like this one---something needs to change.
