I come here about once per week. I sit here for a long time. I sketch pictures and generally enjoy the food and staff. There is wifi here and that is a major reason I come. They never rush me. I am always welcome. I admit I enjoy the ice cream. I know I should not after eating all that... More

We have frequented this place at least 2 to 4x per month since it opened (years ago)! There is never ANY "wait" time. Even when a bus full of customers arrives (having called ahead), the staff quickly seats and serves all of us, having a sufficient amount and wide variety of foods ready, all included in the price of one's...

This used to be an outstanding buffet. Used to be.... The selection is good and the food is not bad. The staff is attentive to your drinks. Typical Chinese buffet really. They have the mongolian grill that Chef Frank (always a smile on his face and so polite) would keep nice and stocked. THAT is what kept us coming back... More

I come here for lunch often. I start with sushi then move on. I take my time at this place for I am usually waiting for someone. They never rush me. I enjoy everything. I recently discovered they have wifi. TWC-wifi but it works well. I always enjoy seeing the Chinese tour busses arrive.

Recently a Chinese buffet restaurant closed down in this area. I heard the health department had a hand in it. I don't know how any of them survive. This place should be next. As others have said the food is bland. They probably cook everything in the same pots and pans. The food is not just bland. It is disgusting.... More

I was visiting Binghamton NY and craving some Chinese food. The closest place to my hotel was the Great Chinese Buffet. The restaurant was clean and the staff was friendly. There were a lot of different dishes presented including sushi, salads, desserts and the usual Chinese buffet fare. There were a lot of choices, but I had trouble finding any... More

This is a great place for lunch. There is a large selection at a low price. The sushi is my favorite. This place is very large and has space for large groups. Don't hesitate to come anytime. There is room. The buses stop here with tourists so you know it is good!
