The parking lot was almost empty at 12:20pm, that should have told me something. Basic Chinese buffet fare, was hard pressed to find anything close to a desirable temperature. Definitely a "one and done", there has to be a better Chinese restaurant in town.

I was eating my buffet food and a small roach walked across my table. This happened in front of the waitress and she used her hand to smash it. Kinda lost my appetite so we left never to return. Place needs updating, cleaning, and pest control.

This eatery is a buffet Chinese food. It was a Friday evening. They have a choice of crab legs and other seafood. The usual Chinese selections are available as well. The traffic is challenging to get off highway 82 and into the parking lot. It is a favorite of the locals, though. The prices are a little on the pricey... More

The atmosphere is terrible; the outside of the building is a mess and that is always a concern as to what the kitchen would look like. Won't return.

in our trip was two families in this place, the service was very efficient and quickly. No more to say, you need to go.

I went there with my daughter and her family. The food was OK, but the whole place was filthy. It needs to be repainted inside and out. I inspect restaurants for a living, and I don't think I would give this one a very good score. I'm afraid that if I saw the kitchen, I might not eat there at... More
