We ate here on a weeknight, and unfortunately, a lot of the buffet was empty and the ice cream machine was broken. The food available on the buffet was terrible.

There was much to choose from. They had local food, chinese food, and grilled meat. The soups were very good as well as the salad bar. I would definitely return.

The buffet offers both Asian and American foods. It was decent and a good value. I would eat here again. Great for families on a budget.

We had a group of 8 and no one was happy with this place, even the kids didn't eat much! Not a large selection of chinese, to be a Chinese buffet! Not fresh food at all

When you walk in the buffet is impressive looking but looks are deceiving. The salad bar is ok but no croutons. Hot and Sour soup sour only. They could have substituted fried wonton noodles in place of croutons. when we arrived the food was not fresh on bar. Needs to be changed out often to ensure freshness. Wait staff attentive....
