Reviewed 12 November 2013 via mobile

Very clean. Amazing selection. Dishes I never saw before & excellence examples of those I have.

Love the sushi, hot & sour soup, desserts.

Only thing I don't like is the less than acceptable chicken parts in stir fries. I want at least thigh or breast meat.

This is not the best Chinese Seafood buffet in CA, but in Southern CA, it is one of the best. A little about my background. I am from Hong Kong. I was a Chinese chef when I was in College. My hobby is cooking. I know Chinese food. I am on the road over 200 days a year, traveling all over US, Canada, Mexico and Asia looking for good food.
This buffet is huge. It is clean, even the rest room. Lunch is $11 and dinner is $18. The sushi bar has has all kinds of rolls. They also have sashimi. I am not too crazy about sushi. I would rather they cook it a bit and make it medium rare. They were all pretty fresh. The crab legs are pretty big. They are bigger than most of the expensive buffets in Las Vegas. What I liked most was their steam Oysters. They were steam to about medium. If you like raw oyster, you are going to love them. They sell for about a dollar a piece at 99 ranch Market. The sauce they put on them was great.
They have a soap noddle station. You pick the meat, shrimp or meat ball and the soup. They also have wonton, but they were all precooked already. It was OK.
They have a grill station, similar to the Mongolian BBQ. You pick the meat and vegetable and they do the cooking. I picked a piece of beef about 4 OZ and asked the Chinese guy to grill it like a steak, without cutting it in pieces. It came out good.
They serve a few Dim Sum, nothing to write home about.
They have a big Salad bar and desert bar. Make sure you try the green tea ice cream.
Service was pretty good and attentive.

I like this buffet better than the Vegas Buffet in Glendale. All the dishes were authentic Chinese food. For $18, it is a pretty good deal if you pick the expensive food- Steam Oyster and crab legs. If you want to know which are the best buffet in CA, one the them is the Tomi Buffet south of San Jose. Everything is better. I gave this buffet a 5 stars because it is one of the best buffet in Southern CA, IMO. Good authentic Chinese food, clean, good service and it is only $18 for dinner.

I'm always a bit skeptical about Seafood Restaurants hence they can cause a great deal of pain later! Though, this was an amazing experience the food was fresh, the beverage refills were delicious and the stunningly amazing sweet section was bar-none. However i have my reserves on the Sushi that is being served, having it be a Buffet i'd stay a bit weary and possibly away from that! Though the food, hospitality and ambience was and is an amazing dine out!
