Lots of seafood, crab, oysters, clams, shrimp plus traditional favorites including unimaginative sushi. But for the money it's great. Go at busy times like all buffets 5-7 dinner 12-1 lunch for the best replenished offerings. Very child friendly staff.

I'm not a big fan of buffet anything and this place lives up to those expectations. Chewy, tepid offerings of things that don't appear even remotely Chinese. This place appeals to the stuff you face with whatever is in front of you crowd...you know, the people that just don't seem to know any better!

The last time I was here, probably about a year ago, I was pretty disappointed. The food was pretty cold and dry, and so were the servers! This time however the food was better, warmer, fresher, and more flavorful. And I even got one server to smile and joke with me! The place was pretty packed, so I understand they... More

We had a wonderful dining experience tonight with friends. On this Thursday night we did not have a long wait for a table but got right in. The waitresses were dressed in Chines pink silk tops and were gracious and quick to meet our needs. There was a wide variety of dishes, salads, sushi and desserts. My favorites were: salad... More

My husband, kids and I have been regulars at this restaurant for years now. The food is always fresh and great tasting. The food is always in plentiful supply unlike some buffets that you can go to. There is a huge variety of foods to choose from. There are some American choices for the kids if they don't like ethnic... More

I had seen great reviews for this buffet so I was excited to give it a try. The staff was not friendly from start to finish. The selection was quite limited for this price range. The egg flower soup was empty and wasn't refreshed during the whole 40 minutes I was there. Most of the entries seemed overcooked. The shrimp... More

I'd actually rate it good overall with some of the better items being the sushi rolls. The teriyaki chicken sticks and some of the stir fried dishes being next best. The service is also good. The dinner isn't worth the extra price in my opinion.

After a bit over 5 years of looking for a good Chinese restaurant in this area, we finally found it! We are not normally terribly infatuated with buffets, but this one is sooooooo good! We arrived about 3:30 and everything on the line was super fresh and hot. Such a good variety of different flavors too! Many times, we have... More
