After three visits, we took this restaurant off our list. They have a very large selection of items, both Asian and American, but quality and consistency are absent. We found many dishes were not kept hot enough and popular items would run out and not...More

We ate there. It was our first time . . . and most likely our last time. The food was horrible. The wasabi was like soup, no flavor in anything else either.

It is just ok. Exactly what you would expect from the typical Chinese buffet. Food was decent if fresh and not so good when we got stuff that had been sitting there. People working there were friendly. The buffet is a bit bigger than most...More

Questionable food. We all got ill after eating from the buffet. Could never eat there again. I wouldn't have even given it 1 star but couldn't post.

Needed to have an early dinner & this restaurant was close to our hotel. Ordered from the menu--food was very good. Food bar looked very appetizing also. Most diners appeared to choose the food bar for the variety. Staff very courteous.

Great selection of foods, but they sit under the heat lamps and everything is overcooked! No sense in eating here when everything tastes blah.

We travel and eat out a lot. This is by far the nastiest and worst quality Chinese food we have ever had. Do not try this place I wish we had checked the reviews before eating here. Hope we do not get sick.

Went for Mother's Day this year. it's terrible food, most of it looks like it's about Frozen and just microwaved. Or just really really greasy. floors dirty. I don't think they really care.

The food at the buffet line has either been sitting there too long or not prepared properly to begin with. The selection was not great and the service was okay but not great. Would not recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a great restaurant...More
