This is a buffet, when we went to serve ourselves the food was cold, food was not fresh nor was it appetizing.

Nothing too spectacular about this Chinese type restaurant. They offer the usual Chinese fare including Sushi and Mongolian type grill. Wait staff was attentive. We went around noon, the place was deserted and the room was freezing cold.
