I love this place! I've been going for more than a decade, and I don't think anything has changed. I'm always seated quickly. My drink arrives quickly. Pans are always stocked, unless the lunch rush is crazy (think Friday lunch rush). Some pans are not 'full to the brim' but this is because they do small pans and change them... More

I went here recently with a group for the lunch buffet. I must say the food was fresh and all the food trays were fully stocked. 2 plates were plenty for me. The waitress was very busy checking on drink refills and clearing plates. I would go again...

Food is always fresh when I visit here and never have any issues waiting on food. Always a great price for lunch and a great place for fast quality food

My wife and I ate at the lunch buffet which cost $6.95/meal. Although this restaurant received some good reviews on Tripadvisor, our experience was not good. Much of the food quality was poor, except for most of the vegetables. We actually felt ill for a day after eating there. There are better Chinese restaurants in Gainesville.

I get the buffet occasionally, but mostly I use the menu for fresh cooked foods. The family loves their customers and are so nice. I see lots of customers that eat here often, so there are many return customers. That should tell you that this is a good and safe place to eat in. Lots of places in Gainesville are... More

If you want slightly above average Chinese food, you want an endless supply of it, and you don't want to pay a lot of money, then this is the place you should go!

Dishes include boiled seasoned shrimp, breaded as well. Snow crabs, Such a wonderful variety of dishes and always fresh. Cheese wonton are delicious. Our absolute favorite restaurant in Gainesville, you'll never be disappointed. The people who work here are always very kind and at your service, polite and considerate. An excellent value, as well.

This is a good place to eat and save money as it is not over priced. The foods are American style "Chinese" dishes and less that authentic foods that you will find in China. But most people have not been to China and will like this place as it is like most other American Chinese restaurants geared more to the... More

Have been going here for years. The buffet has a Lil bit of everything and all tastes great. They have even started doing sushi rolls. What I don't like is the fact you personally get your own ice cream out of the old LG round tubs having to almost stick your whole head in to actually get some. Price is... More
