We stopped here while traveling through Saint Louis and we were very satisfied. The food was very good and fresh. It is a buffet but they also offer made to order stir fry and sushi. The pricing was very reasonable and the staff was courteous. I would definitely recommend this place and would eat there again if ever in the area.

Went there for our monthly family outing.Everyone enjoyed the buffet. Ordered some fried calamari from the menu also and it was delicious.

This seems to be one of the last Chinese buffets in Saint Louis, so please pay them a visit! The other ones I had been to in the area were pretty disappointing, but this one seemed to have very fresh food, fast service, and a great selection of all types of food. Very reasonably priced too! Oh...and clean! Do not hesitate in coming here! Also, there is hidden ice cream on the wall behind the desserts! Lots of different choices, too!

We're from out of town and were looking for good authentic Chinese food. Two visits at this restaurant so far due to reviews on TripAdvisor. Good food the first time when we order all spicy dishes, so we went again since we're in town. This time we tried all non-spicy dishes and we were very disappointed. Stir fry veg dish was bland. Salt had to be sprinkled and we've never done that at a Chinese restaurant. Sweet and sour pork off of the Chinese menu was not anywhere close to the authentic version. It was poorly breaded Americanized sweet and sour chicken version with a so-so sauce on top. Chajang noodle was OK. Kids had buffet which was average. Service was fair at the typical expected Chinese buffet level, no smile/conversation and no service after food's out. If you go, get the spicy dishes.

Will this place ever slip in quality? We have been coming here regularly for more than four years, to the point that I forget to offer a Tripadvisor review because it’s such a common feature of our monthly schedule. But it deserves an updated review because it has to be one of St. Louis’s top Chinese restaurants, even though it doesn’t seem anything special from the outside. The buffet offers a remarkably broad selection of dishes, from the usual Chinese fare to frog’s legs and top sirloin! There’s a good sushi bar, as well as a stir-fry chef waiting for your order. The green salad is basic but fresh, and there are many appetizers. The only drawback to this place is that it seems not to serve alcohol, but the Chinese hot tea is good enough!
