This isn't a romantic or high class establishment, but it is clean, quick and the food is beyond what you find at most Chinese buffets.Friendly weight staff, and you leave very satisfied. It's the best food in town!

Good home style food. Children and family friendly. Very ample portions. Great selection of desert (homemade pies and cakes). I especially like their breakfast menu. Cell phones do not work in this restaurant.

ate here at the last minute after deciding to go out to eat late. Food on the buffet was very good, a huge variety, and hot. They were still adding food to the containers that were low and we got there about 7pm
