I've eaten Chinese food in about 20 different states and in China! The Chinese food in China was the best by far but what this buffet offers is also scrumptious! They have a plethora of options and a hibachi! A HIBACHI! The price is also not outrageous if you're paying for yourself and not others too! Lunch is the best... More

This was the most lavish and extensive buffet imaginable! It not only looked beautiful, it offered fresh, scrumptious, plentiful choices from everything to raw vegetables, sushi (sooo many varieties) and egg/spring rolls to main dishes of every possible description (even crab legs!) and an enormous display of fresh fruits, desserts and ice cream. For those with appetites that prefer American... More

We have never had a bad meal at this location. The steam fish is wonderful. A Mongolian BBQ is available. Small sushi section.

Nice breading and the peanut sauce is one of the better ones I have eaten. Their sesame chickens and general tso is ok, but I have had better in other buffets The... More

Stopped here last night for dinner and found everything on the buffet to be warmed up and refried left overs from lunch time. Everything was dried out, meat was tough and hard and all the fried items had been refried to heat them up. Looks like this might be the next restaurant to close in Henrietta!

Lots of choices is what a typical Chinese buffet offers...and this does not disappoint. But I arrived early for dinner and the food, which I expected to be freshly prepared for the evening meal, tasted like it had been sitting there since lunch. There's another buffet right across the street (Hibachi Sushi Buffet). I decided to compare them. I gave... More

The food selection is very good. You will find everything from noodles, to various meats, vegetarian, soups, etc. There is a separate salad bar. All in all very well prepared.

My wife and I stopped in for lunch and were a bit disappointed. There was an ample selection of offerings from Chinese to American available. Anyone that has been to a buffet knows that the food quality varies from offering to offering. The soups were terrible and well worth a pass. Service in clearing the table was almost non existent....

We went here the other night since we had a coupon from Rochester Save Around Book. The coupon was suppose to be "buy one adult dinner, get one free". When we went to pay they only took off $2.00 Of our total bill. The excuse was that Save Around messed up! We were very angry since there was no clear... More

As a student with a family and on a budget, we decided to take the family out and tried to choose a place with good food and good price. Unfortunately, the saying holds true, you get what you pay for...except in this case the food was not asset the quality it should've been for the price! Some of the food... More
