“Piss Poor Food Quality”
Reviewed 25 January 2014

Went this past week before 7pm and was not very good.
It is a simple thing that this place needs to take care of and for the price you have to pay they should do a better job.
They do not take of the food on the buffet.
Is it so hard to stir your food once in a while?
Mashed potatoes are so crusted over because they don't stir.
Other foods look gross because they don;t care about what you eat as long as they get their over priced money for crap food.
This place should be skipped if your looking to dine out.

“Good value for a family night out.”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

There is nothing really extraordinary about the menu selections, but for a family night out with several different pallets, its perfect. Eat to to your hearts content and there will always be something there for everyone's taste. Service is good and the restaurant is surprisingly spacious. Even when the parking lot is full there isn't more than a few min wait to get a table. One thing that they could do better at is changing up the selections available now and then. Still. For a family of 5 its a simple way to feed everyone no matter what they "feel like".

“Average”
Reviewed 4 January 2014 via mobile

Can't compare this buffet with the Mandarin. Food was average but not bad in anyway. The service was very good. If you want a quick all you can eat at a decent price this is the place

“Uninspired food trough”
Reviewed 15 November 2013

If your'e looking for something comparable to the mandarin, it won't be found here in terms of quality, variety and ambience. Quantity perhaps, service was fine, though I wouldn't return.

“Unimpressed”
Reviewed 13 November 2013

It's true, we went there for dinner within an hour of closing, so this review must be read with that in mind. Not a wide selection of food. What there was, was of only average quality. Breaded shrimp too heavily breaded, ribs were side ribs -- lots of gristle, roast beef not available. Service was good, although our first, soiled plates were never removed from our table. Cost was only $11.50 each, but it was not great value. Would not return.
