There was confusion when we got there as far as how to seat a large group! I feel like there should have more Chinese food. It was good food though, just wish there was more.

The food had been sitting in the container for hours. The bread sticks were so hard u could pound a nail in with them.

Stopped for lunch around 1245 pm. Busy and food was fresh. They seem to be pricey at $9.50 just for lunch. They had 4 soups, lots of variety of hot food and two stops for salad and desserts with many to choose from. Way to many choices and food for me but if you are hungry, give it a try

I guess it is typical for buffet food. Some entrees better than others, as some were fresher. They have many options, but not all fresh and appetizing. $12.25 for dinner, so not cheap.

....to Great Hunan, much better Chinese food. Unless you really want buffet, then go here. But we didn't find the buffet very good, lots of choices but didn't seem real fresh. Quantity rather than quality.

we usually eat here when in alexandria for shopping. the selection is excellent - everything from perfect green beans, plain fish and chicken wings to pot stickers, fried rice and many "combo" dishes with pork, chicken, beef or shrimp. Plus a tempting dessert/ice cream buffet plus a salad bar. Everyone can find plenty they like here! lunch including some beverages... More

I ate here as I was traveling through on a business trip . Quite a bit of variety. Flavor was a bit Bland. For example the peanut chicken had very little peanut sauce and the snow crab legs were quite soggy. The fried dumplings tasted like liver and were neither crispy nor soggy kind of in-between. Best thing I ate... More

Good array of food, spicy to mild--main chinese fair, with some american options and salad bar--obviously this is a buffet and very good value

There are many negative reviews about this place but we found it to be decent. Going to any buffet, you food quality isn't going to be great but this place overall was good. Most of the food tasted good and looked fresh and the interior was clean. If your expecting wonderful quality food, you probably won't get that as any... More

I don't know how anyone eats there more than once. The food was bland and tasted funny. We could not eat more than one bite of their eggrolls and we love eggrolls! Even the tapioca pudding tasted weird. The only thing I liked was the fried rice. It was definitely a waste of $25.00!! Never again.
