it used to be much better, most recently the dishes lack flavor and the service is less than average from an unfriendly staff. drive to Athens and eat at the Chinese restaurant there. much, much better.

We’ve been coming here for many years, and we love the family atmosphere. The buffet is only available on weekends, but there are many good choices on the regular menu. We haven’t found anyplace anywhere that has tastier hot and sour soup.

Very disappointing! Ordered the Beef with Broccoli and Chicken with Broccoli. All that's in it is veggies! Tiny bits of beef and chicken that you can barely see! I ordered the General Tso's chicken and got honey chicken. No spicy sauce. Not worth the money...More
