You can't beat all you can eat lunch for $5. Is it the best gourmet. No. But you paid $5. I had a good meal. I had more than enough variety and it was at the proper temperature. I will go back.

They always have fish and that is my favorite. Plus variety of Chinese food, sushi, fruits, and desert. It is great once a week. Otherwise, your waist line may expand quickly. It is a well balanced buffet

Went here for dinner with a friend. The price was $11? just because it's Friday?? Nothing to write home about, but it was a decent meal. After this visit tho I think I'm done with Chinese buffets.
