This is my favorite Chinese buffet in town. I like how they refill the trays a little at a time with fresh food so it doesn't sit and get wilted and mushy. The veggies are always crisp and not overcooked.

We ordered two takeout entrees, one vegetarian and one rice noodle with mixed meat dish. Even after a 20 minute car ride back to the house, both entrées were excellent. We will be back. And the shrimp was great.

We came late from a 10 hour drive on a long road trip that continues tomorrow. This place was suggested because we were staying in the area. When we walked through the door, the waitress showed us to a table asked about drinks then proceeded to tell us we were going to have the buffet. The selections were limited, cold... More

Four of us came in for a late lunch. The bins were mostly empty and the wait staff seemed to be put off that we were even there. Food seemed like it was leftover from the day before. May have been because of the lateness of our visit, but I'll not give them a second chance.

We used to eat there in the past on Friday nights with friends and always enjoyed it. But had not been there for a couple of years due to circumstances beyond our control. My husband was eager to try it again and so we did. What a terrible experience it was. The food in the buffet was greasy and tasteless,... More

Although the language barrier made it challenging to get the driver to our house (a little hard to find), it was worth it for some good chinese food. We got General Tso's Chicken, Orange Chicken, and eggrolls. Everything was nice and hot and very good.

We ordered the Shrimp Hunan and General Tsa's chicken. Both dishes had great flavor and generous amounts of shrimp and chicken. The chicken was more meat than breading, hard to find in most Chinese restaurants. Vegetables were plentiful and cooked perfectly. The Hunan Shrimp was my favorite.
