This is a big buffet. Still they keep it fresh and well-attended. The items available are the old familiar Chinese-American buffet items, but there are a lot of them and the kitchen has taken care to do a good job on them. I'm especially partial...More

In good Chinese restaurants, hospitality is important and quality is prized. Not so much here. This place used to be great. The guy at the counter was snarly with me. They reheated the awful egg rolls, and the grease actually was oozing out the side....More
