Pleasantly surprised by the great variety at this clean, convenient, spacious restaurant. First time in Thibodaux and really enjoyed lunch. All the usuals and some extras that you wouldn't necessarily expect. Give it a try!

We have family meetings hear on occasion. The buffet has American and Chinese food,so it satisfies everyone's pallet. Delicious food.

The wait staff is very nice. The place is large and well lit. However, the food is greasy, fried, and too overly salted. If you don't care about your weight at all nor care about how much sodium you consume and have an iron stomach then come eat here. Seriously, the last time I ate here I had severe stomach... More

We have had hit or miss times at this restaurant, but mostly miss. The last couple of times we have gone here, we have all had stomach issues afterwards. It is not from over eating as most would think from buffets, but that queasy feeling just doesn't leave.

This is one of my favorite Chinese places but I wish the food was hot and fresh. Especially during lunch hours. (= ∆=);;

First, let me start off by saying that I am not a buffet type of person. I find it gross, but every now and again, my husband likes to come here. I stick with the Mongolian Grill area, where you can choose the meat and veggies with noodles to be prepared for you. You also get to choose your sauces... More

I heard all kind of good things about this place. What a big disappointment. Food was greasy, almost everything is fried. The place is big and well lit.I dont recommend this place.
