We had dinner here and found it to be smaller than most Chinese buffets, so not as big variety. Food was pretty average.

It's not a bad place, but it's not great either. Compared to other options available in the area it's not one I'd recommend. The best part was the hibachi grill, but even then the chef only cooked 1 person's food at a time on a...More
