This is your typical buffet style Chinese restaurant. If you have any kind of a discerning palate, stay away. Every thing here tastes the same. Salty. Greasy. Slimy. Which even describes the table and the floors. The ambiance, if you want to call it that...More

The only thing that my party of 8 liked was the chocolate ice cream. Everything else was awful. I would not go back!

When I went their it was very crowded and it looked very dirty everywhere. Their rating is 90% and I can understand why. Eat their at your own risk.

The buffet is fairly large, and contains a wide variety of items. About half of the buffet items are Chinese, including both Hong Kong and Szechuan styles. The other half of the items are Mexican, American, and standard cafeteria style foods. The fried fish is...More

My husband and I "dined" here a time or two more than 10 years ago. Now I see why we didn't go back until now. It's dreadful. The buffet choices were limited to such Chinese mainstays as party mix, cheesy puffs, and Mexican chicken, whatever...More

We try to avoid buffets and non organic foods in general, but our secret indulgence is the Hong Kong buffet . The soups are very good and I really enjoy the calamari. It is the main reason I go there. During the day they serve...More

Actually, Chinese Canteen could be better than this. Being a Chinese, I swear not to come here for another single time. It's all about chicken, totally a disaster for a beef and mutton lover. The only good is the nice waitress. The price is low....More

Nice waiter, food is alright. Some stuff is good actually. There were some things that were a bit oily, but most chinese foods are.
