The food was only luke warm, the sweet and sour chicken was tough, no peanut chicken, some food rewarmed making it tough to chew, some of the food had labels hard to read My wife says even if you're desperate go elsewhere.

Dry sweet and sour chicken, vegetables overcooked and very poor quality food...only one choice of salad dressing...so glad we don't live near here to experience this again. Sad, because there were several cars outside, so we thought it would be good food...were we wrong!

Typical Chinese buffet. Fairly good variety. It's hit and miss As to quality. Most of the time it is friendly. Service is a little iffy. But you can get as much as you want to eat.

Went during peak dinner hours and everything was fresh and delicious. Complete buffet with lots of seafood, sushi, traditional Chinese food choices, soups, fresh stir-fry area, fresh fruit and lots of desserts. We all enjoyed our meal. Best place to eat if you are staying at the hotel next door. Clean. good service.

Last night (Friday) a friend took me to dinner at this buffet restaurant. It offered a massive selection of foods including sushi and nonAsian foods. The prepared dishes I first tried were mostly deep fried and too greasy for me. Then I tried the Mongolian grill in the back. It offered fresh uncooked thinly sliced meats, vegetables plus noodles and... More

We stayed at the Hampton Inn next door, so the location was great for us....then when you enter and see the array of seafood on their buffet; it was awesome! The staff was friendly and the food and selection was out of this world!
