This Chinese buffet was a short walk from the hotel where we were staying and is convenient for those having business at the U of O campus. There is a good offering of Chinese dishes and some other Asian food. The food was hot and kept replenished by the staff, but the taste of several of the offerings was just... More

For one who loves Chinese buffets, this one was truly average in every respect. The types and varieties of dishes was average, the price was average, and there was nothing in any respect to distinguish it from others. It is close to the University if this helps, and gives average value for one's dollar, always allowing one to have his/her... More

I now eat here surprisingly often. Cheap and plentiful and pretty good darn food. They used to overlook everything but no more! I will offer my preferences on the buffet here: oysters, mussels, broccoli and beef. Did I mention oysters? Oysters! As many as you can eat. Not overlooked. For $12? Gotta be kidding me.

This place is pretty good if you're wanting a Chinese buffet with a lot of options. The food is quality...a bit pricy, but if you're looking for options there are a lot here.

The food was unsatisfactory, the buffet was not refreshed in efficient time and it was expensive for the quality. I would advise another stop for dining.

The buffet is extensive and some dishes were better than others. But the greeter seemed like she was having a bad day. No smile, no welcome, no eye contact, nothing. Only after my husband paid and said thank you did she finally say thank you.We felt it was an okay buffet but we want to try the others before ever... More

This place is one of the few places open on Xmas day. We have been going here for five years now. It is a super place. Great variety of selections so everyone will be happy. They keep dishes fresh and very tasty. Help does a good job clearing plates and keeping buffet area clean and picked up.

My sister and I came to the US every year and this time we in the Thanksgiving season. On Thanksgiving day, the only restaurant that we found open was The Empire buffet. It was a good surprise because there are so many options: salads, vegetables, chicken, shrimp, fish,etc,etc. Besides all that food that you can eat as much as you... More

The buffet has a large selection of oriental and Pacific island foods. The food is fresh and the restaurant is very clean. The staff is very friendly and the price is reasonable for the quality of the food they offer.
