Personally. I didn't like it. It's cheap, scary buffet food that probably isn't changed our very often.

There are not too many buffets in Urbana, probably just two. This one is ok. It typically serves multiple various shrimp dishes. If you are a fan for shrimps, it might be a good fit for you.

The buffet is now reopened. There is a nice variety of choices and desserts. The dessert selection is good. Food is prepared fresh, hot and tasty. If you looking for a new place to try this would work.

Not the best Chinese buffet I've ever eaten at. It's okay. It's small. They have a nice assortment for the size of the place, but there's not a whole lot of flavor in what they offer.
