This restaurant is beside of Grand Victoria Casino. We visited for weekday lunch, so this restaurant wasn't busy. I paid $54 for 3 people. The foods are good enough for this price. Desserts are good too. The time we could stay was 1.5h, but enough for lunch. Also, this restaurant is clean and nice nice.

It's reasonably priced. They offer a wide variety of different foods including some American food which is typical of most buffet style Chinese restaraunts. That way kids that don't love Chinese can still eat. They take your drink order prior to telling you to pick a seat, as they do in most buffets. The drink refills keep coming & they... More

Went to the restaurant years ago, did not enjoy it. Decided to give it another try as my quest requested it. Not much has changed. Opens at 11:00, went there around 4 pm. for an early dinner. The place is strange, as soon as you go in you pay. So 3 people we paid $32.00 and some change. Then before... More

Not only has their price increased while the quality of the food was poor but their bathrooms were not safe for an elder to access. When we came last time she almost fell because they leave the bathroom floor very wet and slippery! The second time they fell and later discovered that they had fractured their hip! We used to...

I think it supposed to be a chinese buffet but since when are tacos and pizza chinese? Reasonable prices and a giant selection of food. Wait staff is very attentive. Good place to go with kids.

My husband and I went last night and it was absolutely awful. We used to frequent this buffet often, but in the last year or 2 it has just been going down hill. We got there around 7:30 and it was empty. The food was almost gone or if there was any it was over cooked and dry. We will... More

We have been to this location at lease 20 times over the last 3 years, and they are a very good Asian Buffet indeed. Pros: Cheesy Spinach, never over-done, always fresh. Crispy Peanut Chicken, not soggy or overcooked, very tasty. Baked Seafood casserole, properly done and tasty. Stuffed & Sauteed Mushrooms both properly done and fresh. Chicken skewers, not over-sweet... More
