We were surprised at how good this cafeteria food was, and a good variety. Just be sure you are there during normal lunch or dinner hours so the food is turned over a lot. Otherwise you will get cold food.

I was having an above-average buffet and then they couple that took us here informed me of the cook-to-order Mongolian BBQ. Did the trick for me! Cannot be beat. right off the I-10.

This buffet is a good, solid Chinese buffet. The variety would please even picky children. I really like the cooked-to-order Mongolian BBQ since you could select what you wanted and the spice level. For $10.99 for dinner, they had a large selection of dishes (most Chinese, some American, and sushi). Everything was freshly cooked. I noticed that they were putting... More

We ended up here because little was open Christmas night, and we had just arrived in Tucson. The buffet was good with a number of unique dishes. The salad part of the buffet was better than most Chinese buffets. They had also a Mongolian Grill with the buffet and it was nice to have your meats and vegetables freshly cooked... More

This place is located right off the 10 Freeway so, for travelers, it is especially easy to access. I especially like this place because they keep it very clean and the food is always hot and fresh and the fruit and salad options are always chilled. They do not charge extra for the Sushi or the grilled items.

Marana is fortunate to have this Asian buffet restaurant. The food is fresh, well prepared, and the variety is fantastic. There is Sushi on the buffet line (I don't like sushi so I cannot comment on the quality) and a Mongolian stir fry (Delicious) as well. The wait staff are very friendly and accommodating. The only minor complaint is the... More

All you can eat Chinese, Japanese, and others. Just one price, and you can help yourself to the buffet. Drinks extra. A good selection of very tasty food. Mostly Chinese. But there was a reasonable selection of sushi. Plenty of room arount the buffet area, so access is easy.

This is the best Chinese buffet we have found, for the reasonable price. You can get all the usual things, plus Mongolian barbeque included in the price. Wait staff are pleasant and unobtrusive.

LOTS of choices of Chinese food, friendly wait staff, nice location with good parking and easy freeway access. My only concern though.... is that we arrived right at opening time and nothing we ate was hot. Perhaps food items will get warmer while sitting in the warming pans, but the 4 Chicken items, pot stickers, egg rolls, BBQ pork, rice... More

This place has different types of food. They have a huge choice from salad, to the main course, and ending with many different desserts. Servers are friendly and attentive. The price for what you get is good.
