When I was a kid, the all-you-can-eat buffet did not yet exist, but our family always made it exist. We would each order something different, put all the dishes in the middle of our table, and everyone ate from everything. We loved it, and when the Chinese Restaurants finally followed our example, we were ecstatic. I enjoy this restaurant, though... More

They have a large buffet -- but if you arrive between lunch and "the normal" dinner time -- you get food that is warmed to death. BUT, that doesn't mean you pay the cooked to death price. The staff is so-so.

the food was ok until you sit down and take a look around, VERY rundown and Im sorry, but just plain nasty building. I ate about 3 bites while looking around the place and could not finish my meal. The area where we sat had dead bugs, the ceiling was falling in and the carpet was horribly nasty. I wasn't... More

From the outside you will have second thoughts. After entering and seeing the buffet you will be glad u came on in. Nice large buffet,great selection of food. Never once has my tea glass ever been empty here. The svc is prompt and very friendly. If chinese is on your To Do list,then heres a place that wont disappoint.
