Nice buffet with good variety. Very popular in the south part of town. Quality is consistent and waitstaff is very attentive and friendly. Something about the fried chicken wings and the General's that I cannot get enough of!!!!!!

Certainly better than the average Asian buffet, it's clean and well stocked with selections. Have eaten there 3 times and consistent each time. Cashew Chicken and Beef and Broccoli are good in particular and egg rolls, egg drop soup, and Crab Rangoon are all good too.

service was average--food was average for a Chinese buffet. At least it was hot--my pet peeve--warm food at a buffet.

We eat at this buffet approximately twice a month. It is always fresh and delicious and has a nice variety. The staff is always friendly and helpful. You can also get meals to go.

This is a popular Chinese lunch buffet spot. I have been here many times for lunch with my husband. The staff is very friendly and prompt. Prices are reasonable, and there is plenty of food. Especially the fried cashew chicken. I'm not into the fried stuff. I find the broccoli beef and the garlic chicken tasting a little "off" to... More

We have been visiting HG off and on for years and we love the food! If you visit during a typical meal time, you will probably not even be able to find a parking place. We usually go at a time that is not busy so we can enjoy hot food off the buffet and don't have to be bothered... More

I was in Joplin on business and craving Chinese food. I saw this place and decided to give it a try, good decision. It has a smallish buffet, but everything I tried was very good. My waitress, and all the staff, was very friendly and never let my cup get empty.

This was a very decent Chinese buffet restaurant compared to other local Chinese restaurants. Food was fresh & the price was affordable. The restaurant was very clean and organized too. The staff was very friendly and polite. Would definitely go back.

A friend suggested this restaurant today for lunch. the food was very fresh. there wasn't as big a selection as some buffets but they also have drive thru at this restaurant which is a big advantage for people on the go! the waitress was very friendly. I plan on making this restaurant my Joplin Chinese place to go.

This is a small Chinese Buffett. The food was good, but what really made it special was the lady running the place. We had a vacation from you know where and after a wronge turn ended up at this place. We were both in a bad mood. But we watched the lady who ran the place talk to people. She... More
