We arrived right at opening for dinner to ensure that we got fresh, hot food. We sampled a wide variety of buffet items. Nearly all of them were at room temperature with the exception of the egg rolls and chicken wings. My wife tried the self serve ice cream and it clearly had been thawed then refrozen. The hot food...

if you are in Los Alamos on Sunday your dining options are very limited. This little Chinese buffet stands out as being the place to go. Good solid standard Chinese buffet food but an extra star for some of the nicest people I have met in New Mexico. The staff goes out of their way to ensure you are comfortable... More

If you like chicken in many different forms, this is the place. I believe I had 8 or 9 different incarnations of chicken that day as a sampler. None was bad, I just liked some more than others. The best part for me was the shrimp on the buffet. I feel I more than got my money's worth with the... More

Traveling through Los Alamos, we stopped for a late dinner. Showed up a little after 830 and the place was empty. They were kind enough to continue to serve us even though we were the only two left. Overall, for Chinese buffet, it is very solid. The food was fresh, most of it tasted pretty good, and overall I really... More

Good value for the money. Basically about like every other Chinese Buffet, maybe a little less variety. Eat until you drop. Nothing special, nothing wrong.
