Terrible food, horrible service and will NEVER dine here again. Soup cold, shrimp stringy and difficult to chew, egg rolls overdone; potatoes too salty, noodles mushy, stringbeans almost raw, coconut shrimp delicious, sweet and sour chicken tough, stringy, over-breaded, cold and hard. another smelly restaurant we will never dine at again.

You can eat til you drop and the various (chicken, beef, vegetable, lo mein, rice plus some "American" standards like french fries etc. fill up the... More

Dropped in because it is close to home and got egg drop soup -- hot n yummy, along with egg rolls, sweet n sour chicken, potatoes, fried rice, stir fried green beans, and boiled shrimp. Food was good, especially the potatoes--they were even delicious cold. Soup was my favorite because I added a little hot n sour for added flavor.... More

Totally average buffet food, on the greasy side, but not overly expensive. Restaurant feels like it has seen better days. Not particularly vegetarian friendly.

Great choice for inexpensive chinese at a clean resturant. They always have a great selection and the place is well kept. We weren't impressed when we came years ago but I think it changed management because now we love coming here.

Took my son to this restaurant because it is close to his home, unfortunately, we should have gone elsewhere. Their soups were cold and lacked flavor, the rice was overcooked and lukewarm, the salmon was way overcooked, the sweet n sour chicken was overcooked, hard, and tasteless, the noodles were mushy, cold, and lacked flavor; then we could not get...
