Our teenage son was hankering for Chinese food after all the Christmas type food we had been eating. My husband and I agreed to eat there but was a little unsure. It was a typical Chinese buffet and rather small. I am sure that it is a fair buffet for a small town like Dry Ridge. If you are used... More

Not huge but adequate and reasonable. They have 3 varieties of soup including Hot and Sour. Nice desert bar w/ ice cream and peanut clusters and more of the usual.

Have been for dinner several times which means that it is pretty good. Most of the food is fresh and tasty but crab legs on Fridays are nothing special as they are small and seem boiled rather than steamed so the shells are rubber and do not break easily. Actually one of the best things are the frog legs. If... More

If you need a quick Chinese buffet with no sushi and limited choices this is an adequate choice. They are slow to restock items. So when you see the food get it. Stay on 75 if going north and go to China moon at the Walton exit for a better meal, but not a buffet.

Typically Chinese buffet - same items - noodles, fried rice, bbq chicken on a stick. Stay away from the pork; horrible experence where the raw fat was stuck in my teeth. Smokey and old decor inside. Should have reviewed comments/feedback before walking in the front door.

The food is normally good but sometimes u have to b careful bc they leave it sitting in the buffet and it dries out. Also they don't refill things like they should. Ive had to wait many times bc the item i wanted was out. The crab ragoons are not very good and the Chinese doughnuts are always hard. All... More
