Finally had a chance to eat here after returning to the area. Don't be deceived by the looks of the outside, it still is a good place to eat. There was lots of variety and for lunch time we were happy. Price is good, too.

I had the lunch buffet and it was very good. A new item, mustard chicken was quite tasty. Also, there is a nice variety of dessert choices. Great service.

I've seen Chinese buffets in our area with more and better choices. Food was not overly warm here. Service to clean off the used plates was good and she was tipped accordingly. Semi nice buffet for a college town.

We had lunch and it was very good. There were several choices of main entrees from which to choose. Both of us sampled several of the chicken options, plus I had some of the beef and pork items. Very tasty.

The only time I come here is when my son drags me here and I hate it. The food is very unappetizing as it is dry, miscolored, and often cold. Once I found hair in the food at the buffet line and a server didn't...More
