Going here for the first time, my wife and I hoped it would be good. Opening the doors, we noticed the greasy glass windows as we entered with one pane shattered but, not broken through. Upon getting to the waitstaff, we were to wait to be seated a good 15 minutes(30 to 40 tables were vacant). They only offer the... More

While this is a typical buffet lunch, I really like coming here. The staff is friendly, quick and quiet. The food is good and plentiful. I highly recommend eating here if you want to eat quickly or if you have a large group of people. They are accessible and have plenty of food. Plus, if you don't see the sushi... More

Food selection is good as it gets, I like the fact that they have sushi to order if you chose to, and I always like the dimsum, but the waitstaff seems like they are rushing you to get out of there, I'm not gonna stay there all afternoon to eat lunch, lol, just saying.

vast variety of food choices...that has been overcooked, over steamed or old. Majority of the staff are rude and aloof. If your really hungry and don't care about quality ...go there. Then go home and throw up!

After a busy day, my sister and I wanted a good meal and she wanted sushi. She definitely got her fill of sushi. We stop here whenever we are in town.

Those who eat at Chinese buffets pretty much know what to expect. Food here was average at best with nothing outstanding. That said, we did not try the hibachi or the sushi. Everything that should be hot was near room temperature. There are 6 buffet tables, and there are many choices, though this lacked egg foo yong, all the traditional... More

It was ok. $8 for lunch is pretty reasonable. I have been in a better buffet places but I wouldn't mind going again. I didn't like dessert choices.

In driving from Maine to Massachusetts, we wanted an Asian buffet lunch option. Our GPS located this restaurant, and the drive there was easy. There was a large variety of food, the staff was friendly, seating was plentiful, and we enjoyed our meal very much.

The food is laid out on self service tables. When they opened, the food was very tasty, and replaced often. It used to be a fantastic deal, especially for those with big appetites. Then the ownership changed, or something. Now the food is mostly hours old and stale, even around lunch hour, doesn't taste that good anymore (maybe they lost... More
