We selected this option when the original option had an hour and a half wait! We found friendly welcome and very tasty foods. We would return here again! Very good Chinese foods!

I've stopped here for the lunch buffet a number of times and I've never been disappointed. The food is very fresh and they are constantly making new food for the buffet.

Good food from a little hole in the wall restaurant. Staff is friendly and service is fast. Buffet is very good but if it is crowded they have a hard time keeping up with demand so you have to wait for them to refill certain items. Large portions on menu items.

This is a small restaurant/takeout in a very small town. We got wonton soup and chicken and broccoli. Both were as good as I expected for a little place basically in the middle of nowhere. There were about 8 or so tables if you wanted to eat it there. We took ours back to our hotel.

This is a small eatery, a few tables but mostly takeout. The combination plates are generous. Husband and I could have split a meal. Lively take out business. eat with plastic utensils.
