This is a typical buffet, but the food is warm and the restaurant feels clean. We could always find something we liked here.

So here's the deal. I usually stay away from these types of places, but as I was completely out numbered and voted by my family we went. I will say, I was pleasantly surprised and I really enjoyed the food. The prices were good, the service was typical but I will say the food was beyond my expectations. Multiple choices... More

We've eaten here a few times with the grandchildren when we're in town. Our most recent trip was just today. It was perhaps the least satisfying visit. I would consider the food average quality for a buffet. I usually don't eat buffets as I don't eat enough food to justify the cost. Today I chose to eat the buffet anyway.... More

Food was Luke warm at best. Ended up leaving in the middle of my first plate. Spring rolls were mushy, crab was not warm at all. They made my husband pay while I waited in the vehicle. slippery oily floors, almost fell. I highly recommend going somewhere else.

Plenty of choices in the buffet, including a small sushi section. Love the coconut shrimp. Chicken, beef and seafood selections.

There was 1 waitress for the entire room, so she worked hard to keep the plates off the table and the drinks full. She was the bright spot to the rest of the experience. There were lots of items on the buffet, but most were not warm enough to make them enjoyable. I've been here when it was busy and... More

If you are wanting to feed a crowd quickly, this is a good place to go. The food was good but not memorable, the servers were pleasant and attentive. The price was reasonable.
