We had a great dinner here. There was a wide variety of food that was all fresh and very tasty, plus the seafood and shell fish were awesome! There were a variety of desserts and well as fresh fruits and veggies. Would definitely go back.

A wide selection on the buffet, desert was not great, no ice cream. A good variety however but always messy with the crab legs and shrimp. I had lemonade which did not allow for refills.

Buffet style. Restaurant was clean. The staff was courteous. There was a good selection of food, however, the food itself was not outstanding. Just mediocre.

Attractive pricing. But some of the food is just OK and luke warm. A noisy, family restaurant. Worth a visit, but I think it could be stepped up a notch.

This buffet provides an excellent mix of Asian and American standard delicacies. Surprisingly fresh and bountiful, the food is quite tasty. Service is prompt and friendly. Overall cost is relatively inexpensive. Plenty of seating and parking available.
