I have reviewed this restaurant before favorably. In my previous review I noted that the food on the bar was cool temp wise. Experienced the same thing this weekend. The thing that floored me was my bill. Took 4 adults with drinks and the bill was almost $70 bucks. I expected it to be about 8 or 9 bucks a... More

This restaurant is buffet style but is also available via staff service. The locals have formed a loyal following and prices are reasonable.

We eat here once a week, when we're in the mountains. We're there usually five months. They have a good variety to choose from and they have some American food too. They are very reasonably priced.

I have been visiting this place since the old Walmart location. Friendly staff and good food. You get a lot of food for a low price.

I visit this restaurant on a regular basis and think it is really good food for the price. I love their Hot and Sour soup and Crab rangoons. My last dining experience wasn't as good as the others. Food on the bar didn't seem to be quite hot enough. Maybe it was just an off day.

We have been going to this place since it opened on Paragon Parkway. It used to be our favorite place. I feel like the owners just no longer care anymore. Prices keep going up but the quality keeps going down. The restaurant itself seems to need a facelift and a good cleaning. I really hope they take mine and some... More

Service is only fair and food just keeps getting worse. I have been a customer here for many years even back to the old Walmart shopping center and everything has changed here. The food is sometimes cold on the buffet bar or has been sitting to the point of drying out. I doubt I will go back here.

I was very sick after we ate here from what I assume was MSG. The female/owner? was quite testy and seemed as if she had done us a favor by taking our money. I eat Chinese all the time and their egg drop soup was weird, crab rangoon was good. The rest of the food was .....meh. Would never eat... More

I loved everything about my visit. service, food and price! Restaurant is beautiful. the staff make you feel right at home, The restrooms are very clean! The staff are friendly and will help if you need help. You don't have to eat the buffet, they have a great menu as well. You can order buffet to go also.
