We tried the lunch buffet shortly after they opened, which is key because nearly everything was still fresh. Nothing exciting or amazing but what do you expect for $10! The decor was the typical outdated worn-out carpets, plastic plants, tacky decorations & super cheap cutlery,.. but the place was clean & the staff friendly enough. If they finally decide to...

It was mid afternoon when I stopped for the buffet. The food was rather bland and only warm. For a buffet the selection was limited. I had checked other reviews and can only conclude there are good days and not so good days. I was there on a not so good day.

The place was empty the Saturday evening we went there and apparently they close the doors for the evening whenever the spirit moves them. The one woman who was talking on the phone was really loud which is distracting. Both of our dishes were well prepared and they give you plenty of food. Each dish is large enough to split... More

We had high hopes here, and we arrived at the right time for all the food in the buffet to be fresh for lunch. But we were disappointed. The food was pretty greasy and did not have very much flavor. Also, the price was a bit higher than I would have expected, especially because there was a sign out front... More

Presque Isle is in a very rural setting and we were happy to find a Chinese restaurant right on Main Street. It has a large dining room with the typical kitschy faux oriental decor. There is a long buffet and a sushi bar. We chose to eat off the menu and three dishes gave us enough food to take home... More

I forgot to add to my previous review.... she has excellent technique and protocol for sushi preparation. Sister in law is ridiculously allergic to shell fish yet she has been able to eat sushi here with zero problems no airway constriction no hives. That means no shellfish impressive stuff really considering were across the table with shrimp and Crab.

This restaurant is one of my favorites because it's in a beautiful building, the price is reasonable, and the food can be very good. The problem is that it is inconsistent and the cook can be a bit temperamental. I love their sushi but sometimes it's amazing and sometimes it's just ok. They have a nice meeting room, but it's...

My boyfriend and I ate here and the food was not good. It was very bland. It use to be great but has gone down hill considerably. The place is dirty too including the bathroom. Even the fortune cookie was gross it was like soggy and could be folded open flat without breaking. The crab rangoons very disappointing. They have... More
