The decor and atmosphere is like you've been transported. Their all-you-can-eat buffet is authentic Chinese food with plenty of choices. There is also a menu full of choices from there culture and ours.

Great chinese buffet with plenty of food choices. Not real expensive. Lower 48 pricing. Very limited dessert items. Would definitely recommend it.
