I always stop by this place for lunch on my way to the Rehoboth beach. This place, compared with the buffet with the same name in RB, delivers better value and the food they offer are comparable. It's only 45 minutes away from RB and is always worth my detour. I will continue to come back to this place. Lunch... More

Really enjoyed this stop over while waiting for the race traffic to subside. The waitresses are friendly and the food is better than average. Don't wait too late because they stop restocking about 9:00 because they close at 10:00.

First, we must qualify our comments by mentioning we arrived at the restaurant after 8:30 p.m. Even at this late time, we were pleased with the restaurant. The greeter welcomed up notwithstanding the late hour. The restaurant is a buffet and is located on the main road-US Route 13-in Dover. The restaurant is near the hotels and shopping areas. There...

I have eaten at this place before and liked it. This time I am in town and of course I came to eat here again. At $7.xx a person for lunch, the value really exceeds expectation. There are many choices to select from. The only thing that I wish they would change is to have some healthy options. Most of... More

This is a Chinese Buffet with the usual buffet fare. They have a pretty large assortment of sea food. They are busy enough that the food is constantly being replenished. There's nothing worse than a buffet with old warmed over food. One small complaint: the ice cream freezer needs to be set colder, the ice cream was a bit too... More

Every Monday is my ritual to eat here while on travel. They serve good variety of food. Their fish fillet and salted fried shrimp are the best.

I am maybe the only person in my community that does not adore buffets. They overwhelm me and often do so with underwhelming food. NOT this one. The owners and staff keep this buffet fresh and the variety is not to be matched even at the big casino hotel nearby. There is American and Chinese food filling three double buffet... More

this restaurant keeps getting better every time we visit this area. More food choices and everything is always prepared well and is very tasty. This is an excellent meal for a very good price.
