We had dinner for take out. Good service but a little expensive. Food is heavy and greasy and you feel guilty after.

I'm working in the area and decided that for $17, the buffet lunch was fairly reasonable. The food was very fresh, the entire buffet was available, staff were very polite and extremely attentive. We will definitely be going there again!

just recieved our order at home. Cantonese Chow Mein 13,79 is now filled with small spaghetti noodles, not large egg noodles, dish is 1inch smaller, the Chinese style beef steak with onions had 6 pcs flat beef and filled with onions, should read "onions with a little beef 11.99 for onions., What a waste of 50.00. Never again.
