The food is delicious and well prepared. Service was OKAY but the restaurant is clean, and quiet. The sodas are very strong, just as I like them.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The restaurant and bathrooms were clean. The food was typical Chinese buffet choices, beef, pork, and chicken. The buffet was refreshed with new food regularly while i was dining. I noticed a lot of folks getting take out buffets. This is a good sign as this restaurant is 3 doors down from a... More

Nice Chinese restaurant, place was clean and the food was good My family and I went there for dinner and had a good meal, not much for atmosphere but the food was good, the waitress was very friendly. I would recommend this place to my friends.

It's a good buffet with plenty of choices. Your not going to get top shelf quality but the food is good and you'll get plenty of choices. Wait staff was a little inattentive but performed when asked. Good place for meals but go in with timid expectations

Great food. Fresh and good tasting. Nice variety and well prepared. The service was very good as we did not have an empty glass or a used dish sitting on our table the entire time we enjoyed our meal.

Love this place, new and clean... People were standing in line to get the table.. The atmosphere is great over there, the waitress was nice and friendly. The lady couldn't keep up bringing the food out. That's means what??? The food tasty and delicious... I would definitely recommend this place... On the picture, grilled salmon with noodles...

there's nothing very splashy about this restaurant but the food is pretty good and it's pretty cheap. All you can eat for less than $7.00 each (without drinks). There was plenty to find that was tasty...you can skip some of the dishes...but...to each his own. There isn't much in the way of décor...but for the price...who cares? Service was fine.... More

Not long ago we ate at this good restaurant. You can order take out; however, they do not allow you to take your leftovers out via takeout containers. I wish they did, however. The employees are very attentive to the eat-in customers.

I go to Chinese buffets all the time and load up on almost everything they have. All the food looks so good but it never really hits the mark. Here it's different. The crab tasted like crab as the chicken tastes like chicken. Even the steamed veggies were very good. If you go for lunch try to get there early... More
