We had a pick up from this place as a part of our hunt for a good Chinese food. Unfortunately, the hunt doesn't stop here. Nothing drastically wrong with the food but nothing great as well. Food: They have good options in terms of their vegetarian menu. We went for Vegetable Chop Suey, Vegetable Mei Fun and Egg Rolls. The... More

We had tried this place half dozen times and it was always so-so not to clean run down food iffy some things good most just ok.

I don't know how this place is still in business. The carpet is nasty , bathrooms are always out of order, food isn't good and never at right temperature, and the employees are plain rude ! This is a dump.

I have ate here several times and it is either good or bad, but never great. The one thing that they do offer that is great is the sushi, or the kind of sushi that I like is great anyways, I can't speak for all of it because I don't eat all of it. I love California Rolls and there's... More

I spent a lot of time in Newport back in 2012 and this Chinese Buffet was one of my favorite places to eat. Relocated here a month ago and have dined here twice. I'm sorry to say that the quality and selection has gone down a great deal. It will be some time before u try it again.
