I have probably eaten here about 4 times since 2013. I wont complain about the food. The food is pretty good. I question everything after my last visit. After eating my food I watched a wait staff cleaning the booth across from me. She wiped the nasty food filled seats and then used the same cloth to clean the table... More

The selection is decent. Most of the food's temperature was OK, but some things were barely lukewarm. The floors were slick in our section of the restaurant like a skating rink. The prices were above average in our market and worse still, they no longer offer Military nor Senior discounts. I will not go back there again after they have... More

Lots of choices. Fresh food. There is no wait. Friendly staff. Fast check out. Ample parking. It's average. However, food is about the same as every other Chinese buffet.

Quite spacious, staff seen busy trying to ensure customers are satisfied. The food nicely spread out and lots of options to pick from. Good for individual / group visits and friendly staff. Nice place to be while in Charleston.

Not sure why there are so many terrible reviews of this place. It's pretty average but not awful. Lunch price is less than 8 bucks, what do you expect?

Shame, Shame, Shame. The food, all of it, was not very good at all. Loaded with grease or salt. I wonder what else. Some of the items were just terrible. Service, what is that. There are a number of Chinese Pig-A-Terrias around the area. This one is not good. I am not sure what to call the food. They claim... More

Our first and LAST visit. They served shrimp with the heads on. Yuck. But the cold shrimp did not have the heads. Food was bland, a lot of American food. If I want that fare will go somewhere else. And the ladies bathroom Floor was sopping wet and just filthy! This place needs a visit by the DHEC.

Will never eat here again. The food is terrible, the waitress is extremely rude.. She refilled our water (after attempting to grab it) and walked away then walked by 5 or 6 times then finally asked if we needed more.. Then when time comes for the check, she stood beside my girlfriend and I trying to make us give a... More

This restaurant use to be great. Now the front door is dirty full of finger prints. My wife said the bathroom was filthy. The food was poor at best. nothing tasted good. Employees sit around and let things go. One work sucks!.
