I was hoping for better food, but a friend was paying. We were served buffet-style and many dishes were offered, but a lot of them seemed starchy. I would have preferred nicely steamed vegetables.

Gets crowded. The food in general is so so. The oldtime waitresses are just out right rude. But they have a great egg flower soup. If you go any other time than the special lunch time, you will be disappointed. Because the turnover of food...More

Staff is nice and it is it. The food is not worth of going inside. Although it is not expensive, for that amount of money, you can get something nice to eat elsewhere.

My daughter wanted to try this place when we first moved here and it wasn't the greatest. The food was barely warm, the table was sticky and we had to ask three times for silverware. The service was slow and their attitude wasn't the greatest.

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...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...More
