The food, overall, didn't suck. I must say the Chinese's version of seafood gumbo was delicious. However, the rest of the food was ALRIGHT. The watermelon slices were two tone color...red and pink.......the red was sweet and delicious; the pink was spongy, bland, and unfortunately thicker than the red.

Service was awful. I had to keep asking for beverage and water refills. The first sets of silverware were dirty. They offered military discount, which was appreciated.

Jumbo Buffet on Williams Blvd is just an average Chinese Buffet. The selection of dishes is average. The quality of those dishes is good.
The selection of seafood is better than many Chinese buffets. Snow Crab is good, but you have to ask for the supply to be replenished. They will leave the crab tray empty for as long as they can. Boiled shrimp is ok. Crabs and Crawfish are normally available. Buttered shrimp is good.
The Sushi offered is mediocre at best, but at least you get to choose from several varieties. Lots of crab salad in most of the choices.
The place is kept pretty clean. The service is good. The pricing is reasonable.

They had so many choices for things to eat and tons of seafood. Traditional spin on a buffet and so delicious. We could have gone back every day!

Pretty good your average Chinese restaurant, had more stuff than some of the Chinese restaurants I've been in before, the service was decent, I will say I really enjoyed the fried blue crabs, and the hot and sour soup was very good also , that's pretty much all I got to say but if you are in the area ,stop by and give it a try you do get your money worth .

The service is not that great. But the place is huge and had a lot to choose from as far as food as selection. They are very very slow to refill the sushi part of the buffet, but overall the food was plentiful and good. I would return.
