So often Chinese buffets can be downright scary. This buffet was fresh, clean, and right on target. Food was very fresh and while there may not of been a huge variety, the things you expect were there and were well-executed. Lots of chicken dishes, sweet-and-sour,...More

I don't know if the restaurant has changed ownership or if the owner is just never around. My husband and I used to go there three to four times a month. Now, maybe once. It seems there are a large number of young people are...More
