Most Chinese buffets are unappealing to me- but this place is still wonderful. The food is great, the buffet is reasonable, the staff is always friendly. I used to have lunch with friends here when I was in HS- twenty years later and I stop in a few times a year with my kids- they love it, too!

We love this restaurant. The owners greet us by name and the wait staff knows what we like to drink. That aside, the setting overlooks the Kennebec River which is wonderful. We have had both buffet and individual dishes. The quailty is high and although the buffet may be smaller than elsewhere you won't go hungry. My favorite dish is... More

Meal is always delicious and employees are friendly. You know what to expect when you go. Buffet is awesome. Sometimes there is a bit of a wait on weekend nights.

Started with the hot and sour soup. Lacked the essential vinegar that's found in ALL hot and sour soups. Moved on to the crab rangoons. Nicely fried, hot and crispy. Almost tasted home made. The table ordered the chicken with cashew, chicken fried rice and garlic scallops and shrimp. ABSOLUTELY TASTELESS! We tried adding salt, soy sauce - anything to... More

The noontime buffet is very good, although amazingly short on vegetables. The standard broccoli, green beans, and a few sliced carrots are visible. The menu is long, and good. There are few disappointments.

Whenever I go to a Chinese restaurant, there are always so many things offered on the menu that I can never decide what to order because I want many of them! The lunch buffet solves this problem! Nice variety of items, hot and inexpensive! This is a popular lunch option in the area so the food doesn't just sit there... More
