We’ve ate at quite a few Chinese restaurants and this one is just average. We ate around 5:00 on a Saturday and there was plenty of seats. Buffet was 11.49 which I thought was a tad expensive based on the food. The foods were fresh...More

This restaurant would do itself a favor if it just focused on the buffet. While we were there no one utilized the Mongolian grill. I don't know if they didn't know how to ask for items to be cooked or they were just in so...More

I have been here multiple times and the food is always great. Food is replenished in a timely manner. Staff is always nice. The only negative about this place is the parking. Multiple businesses in the same area and the parking is shared.

Like many Chinese buffets, you pay a set price, then fill up your plates, and go back for seconds if you want. There are some obviously Western-style foods on the buffet, as well as some basic Chinese-American dishes. There is also a "Mongolian Grill," where...More

I didn’t even ave the buffet, thank the Lord. I ordered takeout - a shrimp roll and some shrimp fried rice. The roll was dripping with grease, no exaggeration. The fried rice was really colored rice with carrots and onions, with steamed shrimp packed on...More

We didn't know that this was a real "help yourself" Chinese Buffet restaurant until we walked in: you pay up front before being seated, just like you make an order at any MD or KFC (so no tips). You pick up food and drinks, then...More
