The atmosphere is very welcoming and the service is number one. Started with a delicious cold Mai Tai followed by sweet and sour chicken and delicious fried rice. Needless to say leftovers were taken home. Even better the next day.

We visited after Church this week and it was busy (usually a good sign). Service was ok though a special shout out to the waiter serving the dim sum as he made a real effort. All in all the place is in need of a...More

This is large, so you can usually get a table. That's about it. Other than that, it's just not that special. There are much better places in the area that are smaller but feel more like "fresh food". This feels like a chain restaurant, with...More

The food was plentiful at the buffet but with little flavor. I loaded up on food but since nothing had much taste it was actually hard to distinguish what I was eating. I hope never to go here again.

came here for dinner and the buffet was pretty good. Sure, I could have used boneless spare ribs, but the number of choices was plentiful and while some dishes were a bit too tepid, all in all it was a good meal. Place is spacious...More

Valentine's Day dinner before a local show was straight up awful. We'd been to the restaurant a very long time ago (30 years ago) and we remembered it as being always crowded and very tasty, so we thought we'd try it now. We walked in...More

The buffet generally has a wide variety of options, and my only complaint is that on a slow night the food will sit and get old on the buffet table. Food is fresher on a busy night! Food quality is typical Chinese, a little greasy...More

I dined at this restaurant with a large group of people. People in the group wanted to have the buffet, so I went along with them. There were good offerings on the buffet to appeal to most Chinese food lovers. The hot and sour soup...More
