? $7.95 for lunch, what can you ask for? All is best; comfort foods to me and all my friends! Got 10% off with 10. Fried shrimp, fired zucchini, and hand pick seafood’s collection with dipping sauce or not. Eat your delicious veggies that fried...More

I have been to Chinese buffets before and I rarely come across one that is good. This was no exception. The food is either fried, plain, or artificial (i.e. krab). The price for each person at 3 PM is about $15 each. Definitely not worth...More

The review on the wall is old for a reason. The food, service, freshness, quality, cleanliness, appearance, etc has all gone down hill. This is a typical low cost, make the money, restaurant that doesn't care about quality. Crappy food, the McDonalds of Chinese Restaurants....More

The buffet had a large selection, unfortunately, all of it was terrible. The rice was almost inedible: a big glob of goo and I was there at the height of lunchtime, so they were refilling and replacing trays quickly, It wasn't as if the food...More

This is a big buffet. Still they keep it fresh and well-attended. The items available are the old familiar Chinese-American buffet items, but there are a lot of them and the kitchen has taken care to do a good job on them. I'm especially partial...More
