Only gone their for lunch. The buffet is amazing. Lots of choices. The family that runs it is very nice. The buffet has lots of choices and if you get it to go you can load up a Styrofoam box and eat for a week.

This restaurant is one of only a few in the Karns area but is definitely the best if you like Chinese food. The owners are very nice and the food is always very good. Their buffet has a good selection with a great price.
