“Find Another Restaurant”
Reviewed 16 October 2013

We tried this as only one of two Chinese Restaurants in town. I am not a great fan of buffets but this one was not any better than average. Most of the entrees were fried and those that were not ran low at lunch with refills either missing or late. The hostess was screaming at the kitchen to get the food out and it was slow coming. The price was fair but that is it. Should have ordered takeout from the other Chines place.

“AWFUL FOOD ...Stay AWAY”
Reviewed 9 April 2013

When you walk in "you pay first" so you can't see what terrible food you are about to try ....This buffet is so limited in quality that you are wasting your money

“Small chinese buffet”
Reviewed 5 May 2012

Sign when you first walk in- pay first! which is not what i'm used to but I actually liked it better than having to wait for my bill. Don't expect crab legs or sushi on the dinner like other buffets, if you want crab legs go down the street on Fridays to Raintree restaurant.

Reviewed 12 March 2012

Nice people. Good delivery service. Buffet with some variety. Mostly fried stuff. Good if you drank too much last night.
