Dragon buffet is ok. The food was good! The buffet is huge! Only complaint is I felt like we were being watched anytime anyone went near the crab legs. Lol it was like people came out of nowhere to make sure you only got one plate of them like it was some huge deal. Other than that it is a... More

Lots of good Chinese food, but not always hot. Wonton soup usually out of wontons and again, not always hot. Hibachi grill very good, and you're guaranteed a hot meal. Service very good. Dishes cleared quickly.

The food was really good and the prices were great, but my boyfriend and I have been on the toilet since yesterday with the runs from it. The food is actually so good though that I may risk it again. Lol

Being graduation day for ECSU, most places were packed for lunch; this was not. The food isn't bad, and the service staff is attentive. There is plenty to offer on the buffet and unlike many buffet places, the food is checked and replaced frequently. I've been here before and was determined not to come back, but I'm glad I gave...

Tonight was the last time we "try" and hope it's going to be great. The first time was ok, second time; not so good. Tonight was the worst! Food was bland and under seasoned, most looked way overcooked or burnt. The only thing that I enjoyed they didn't have to cook because it came out of a can and I... More

Long time customers 1-2 times/week for years. Tonight the service was insulting and horrid - we will not return. Our Navy son returns from deployment this afternoon, we treat family to a favorite meal there and the hostess takes offense at seating us at the front of the restaurant in a large booth - so she "sicks" an Asian young...

We have been here dozens of times over the years, the food was par, restaurant sub par so we stopped going for a while. We decided to go again last night, and wow! They have remodeled the restaurant and it was beautiful! It has a more "open" feeling and was very well needed and was very well done! It starts... More

The food was nasty! The Mac and cheese looked like soup! The sushi was hard as a rock and appeared to have been sitting out for three days! Even the chicken was nasty! I do not recommend anyone to eat here!!!

Food was hot and tasty. No empty selections as the staff kept up with the customers use. Very clean.
