Stopped in and had a nice buffet dinner. Broad choice beyond just oriental food. Prompt seating and drink service. Buffet food was good and varied.

We stumbled upon this restaurant on a Sunday afternoon and really enjoyed the buffet meal! We weren't expecting the food to be as good as it was. And the price of the buffet was amazing also!

I didn't care for it. they had Chinese and american food. none of which made me say, "I must come back for this" Pricey too for what you got. The service was good, although they only refilled drinks so, you can't really mess that up....More
