Don't eat the buffet. The owners keep this buffet not stocked and dried out and they refuse to cook any new food. They say the sushi is good. But definitely don't do the buffet

We were four hungry people on vacation. Our friends started with sushi. It looked beautiful and they loved it. I chose this restaurant based on reviews in trip advisor. What helped make the choice was that it has been in business a long time and that the owners run it. The food was more authentic Chinese than most Chinese restaurants... More

Orlando has Chinese buffets on nearly every corner, but this wonderful little restaurant is really worth the stop. The buffet is simple, delicious and very reasonable in price. Service is maintained by the owners, a very sweet couple. The restaurant is very clean & the food is fresh & hot. Many locals came in to sit at the sushi bar,... More

I was passing through at lunchtime and the lunch buffet caught my stomach's eye. Place is very clean and the food was good! Very friendly staff and attentive to refilling drinks. Even had a vegan item (which was delicious) called Buddahs Delight offered as part of the buffet.

We went there for lunch after passing it. It was a very cheap buffet style restaurant and a shushi bar. Staff is minimal, but very friendly. The sushi there was also very fresh and for lunch it is very cheap for both sushi and the buffet. The best stuff we had there was the peking beef, egg foo young, crab... More

The Sushi here is excellent! The Sushi is the best in Orlando! This small, family owned restaurant offers very good service, very good food and the best Sushi at a price that is affordable for regular visits. We try to go here at least once a week and 2 times a week is a real treat. 2 people can eat... More

As far as cheap Chinese buffets go, this one is small and doesn't include what you would typically find at other cheap Chinese buffets around Orlando. It doesn't have ice cream, it doesn't serve sushi (you have to buy it extra separately from the buffet). Most of their dishes are chicken. The eggroll was not good at all and the... More

Good, fresh choices on the buffet. Great price ($7.35 dinner). Does not include sushi, but there is an amazing sushi bar there. Great customer service. Away from all the hustle of the tourist areas.
