“Disappointed- small selection of not very good food”
Reviewed 27 July 2012

I went here with low expectations and was still disappointed. It is a nice building with pretty decorations but the food is not very good, even by buffet standards. The worst aspect of this place is the tiny selection. They had several sushi rolls on the buffet, but they were almost all crab with some kind of mayonaise-ish sauce. Some of the food had a weird chemical taste as if they may have sprayed it with a preservative. The staff was friendly enough, but did a poor job keeping up with used plates. The only people who seemed to enjoy their meals were the ones eating tons of crab legs. I definitely do not recommend this place.

“Keep driving”
Reviewed 12 August 2010

I have been to this restraunt one time. I ate the buffet and it was quite disappointing. The food was average at best. The waitress was attentive and kept the glasses full. I have recently dined at the Hong Kong Buffet next to the new Wal Mart in Broussard and it is much much better at a similar price.
