Although the food usually is the same with very few changes, it always has the excellent flavor and is consistant. The family is friendly and the décor is charming. Nobody leaves here hungry and if they do then they don't like Chinese food. I can count on this restaurant to take houseguests and family.

My wife and I have been living in Sarasota for about one year but have visited here in the past. Still trying to find decent food at fair prices. This place was a disaster for lunch. Crowded so I suspect the locals are used to bad food or just want lots of food for little money. The choices were the same as every other cheap buffet, quality was just poor. Every dish on the buffett was just warm so I'm sure the food inspector has not been around for awhile or else they just don't check. The only think I ask after I eat at places like this is, "please, I hope I don't get sick !!" If you want lots of poor quality american chinese food, this is the place for you, don't expect to see me here again.

The good: The staff is friendly and quick with getting plates cleared off our table and drinks refilled. The restaurant is clean and the atmosphere is nice and relaxed.
The bad: the food- most if not all the chicken dishes were dry and some where even cold. There we even some dishes that were cold. The food wasn't terrible, it just wasn't good either. The flavored were bland and the egg drop soup had a slight burnt taste to it. Overall it was a surely 2 (not a 1 rating because the dumplings were pretty good and so was the rice and icecream).
Value was not bad for lunch at $6.75 per person.
Overall the experience was subpar and I probably won't be back here again.

Have not been to a good Chinese restaurant in ages, to often all the food tastes the same. NOT HERE everything had its own distictive flavor and taste. All the hot food was hot and at no time was anything dried out the turnover of the food was great, you did not have to waite on the food coming out as soon as the dish was low a new one was put in place. I can see why it was so busy the food was fantastic, we will deffinately be back.Everything was super delicious.

If you are looking for good Chinese food and you don't want the King Crab legs, you can eat a nice "all you can eat" buffet with good variety for under $10. At $8.95 per person, this is a very good value. In an old converted Rustler/Sizzler restaurant, it's a very clean and well run place. The soup is very good, with a large assortment of appetizers including a small sushi and salad bar. They are constantly restocking the trays and don't just leave two pieces of food sitting there before they refill them. The ambiance is not great, but it's clean, and there are servers who are attentive for your drinks and clearing your plates. There is an ice cream machine for dessert, with a dessert bar including almond cookies, cakes and fruit. Try putting the hot sugar coated donut in a cup with some vanilla ice cream and you will have a tasty dessert. We've been going there for a few years and the food remains consistently good. It's a place where you will find many locals who know it's good food for the money. There is another Chinese buffet next door, but you will find more variety and better tasting food here. You won't be sorry if you give it a try.
