Went here for dinner after a long day. It has lots of choices from sea food, barbecue to regular Chinese. There was simple California rolls that were very good. There is too much to choose from. The price was excellent for the budget minded.

Around our hotel the restaurants look very unprepossing but we thought we would try this one. We were seated immediately and we could then choose what we wanted. The god was very good, plenty of choice and obviously enjoyed by the many customers there.

The food was plentiful and actually very tasty. The only thing I found disappointing was the lack of crab legs. It was the only item that was empty and not regularly filled. Other than that, we really enjoyed our meals.

It suited our desire not to go into Arcata at night! As buffets go, there was something for every taste and it tasted fresh.

The food was great as buffets go. I would recommend this restaurant if you like Asian food. They have a variety of Japanese (even simple sushi), Chinese, and even Mongolian Grill.

We're not big on buffets but they actually had a nice selection that included crab legs and oysters! I wouldn't call the Chinese food gourmet by any stretch of the imagination but they offer a good value but don't expect Hong Kong or San Francisco.
