This place was a regular haunt when I lived in Lexington. My visit this time 16 years later was with my son, his family and the in laws. We had the brunch and dim sum cart and it was a treat on all accounts. Fresh fare, many choices and not over done with oil or bland versions of Chinese food. We also had a variety of deserts which were not average but influenced by interesting takes of soy, cream based and cookies. I truly had a good visit here.

This is a great convenient spot in the middle of historic Lexington! This is a nice place to come with friends or family and there are function rooms available for a large gathering. They have nice comfortable booths and tables so you don't feel like you are in a noisy Bistro. You actually can talk with the people at your table. There is no loud obnoxious music playing. The large assortment of tasty Chinese food on both the lunch and dinner buffet should make every one in your group happy. They have a little bit of everything including soup, raw bar, and dessert bar. They have a liquor license and the drinks have always been good. The service is excellent and they are always polite and accommodating. I have only had the buffet so can't speak to anything else. I have been here many times and have always been impressed with the service and food. The prices are fair and there is plenty of parking at the lot next to the restaurant. There is also a movie theater across the street and plenty of small shops to visit before or after dinner. Great spot!

Had the pleasure of attending YR in Lexington depot square for the 1st time with friends for dinner. Buffet was plentiful with Chinese takeout staples: general gau's chicken, fried rice, and shrimp with steamed vegetables. I liked the rice noodles with vegetables the best; they had brown rice available for those who do not wanted white or fried. The teriyaki beef strips also very tasty. Not at salty.
If the Littleton location is as good as this location, I'll go there next.

This popular Chinese restaurant is convenient for Lexington neighbors. The unique weekend bruch combines a buffet and dim sum in carts with many selections. The food and service are good overall although the restaurant itself is in need of upgrading.
