When it comes to Chinese restaurants, the formal sit-down establishment seems a thing of the past. Instead, there are overwhelmingly two "flavors": you pick from: the small take-out joint with maybe a few tables or the expansive Chinese and Asian buffet. This operation is obviously...More

I should have walked through the buffet line before sitting down and ordering. The food was all over cooked, seemed like leftovers from days before, and overall not as fresh as other China buffets I have visited. Now I know that most of these buffet...More

Hubby and I tried this place because it was close to our hotel and we like a good Chinese buffet. This place was horrible. We got there around 8:30 and the food on the buffet was old, hard, and we found multiple hairs in the...More

This was the worst Chinese buffet experience I’ve ever had. Just about everything was wrong with the food, taste, texture, color, dried out...strange ingredients and so on. The ‘crab’ with cheese for example, they used what appears to be Colby cheese, and it had diced...More

I will never expect a buffet to have the best food, but this place went way below the standard even for buffet's. The fried foods were extremely greasy. The other foods just tasted so bland and boring. Not a good meal, even compared to other...More
