We have eaten at many Golden Corals...Pennsylvania, Florida..and we are usually very satisfied. Unfortunately we were very disappointed here. The food was not topped up, the variety ws limited and it was not clean.

Had an early dinner here and it was very good! All of the food we tried was fresh, hot and prepared correctly. The buffet was well stocked and always full. The service was what it should be and the value was great!
