My wife and I ate the lunch buffet on a Saturday and some of the food was already cold one hour after opening. We really wanted Chinese but were only disappointed.

The buffet had a great selection, all of which was tasty. Nothing had that typical msg taste to it. Decor is a little dated but with big comfy booths, good food, and a really nice waitress that didn't matter. Really reasonable price. Highly recommend

Not the largest but one of the best Chinese buffets at which I have dined. The steamed barbecue was a delightful surprise. Reasonably priced.

Affordable, open late, offering a buffet of very good Chinese foods. From fried rice to some California rolls and real Almond cookies, the buffet is a great value. Family of four get out the door for less than $50.

We chose the buffet for $9. each for lunch. The preparation of the dishes reminds both my husband & I of what we ate 45 years ago when restaurateurs really cared about the taste. Wonderful soup, fantastic seafood salad (I went back for more of...More
