The birthday girl in our party was in the mood for Chinese food and chose this restaurant. We all opted for the buffet after seeing the great selection. The only downside was that we all over-ate. They also have an extensive off-the-menu list to choose from. We would definitely return.

Came here for a quick dinner almost at closing time. There was a buffet but we chose to order from the menu.The service was quick, the food passable. For a small place like Morro Bay, I guess this is good. The restaurant was just next door to the hotel we stayed at.

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.

Great Chinese buffet on our one night stopover on our road trip down the PCH driving the camaro convertible.food was plentiful and changed out regularly . Good service and a very cheap price compared with the rest.Morro bay is a very expensive place for hotels and most things.

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 this). A very good variety of dishes and vegetables. Unique in flavor back to the... More

We went for a dinner there on the day after Christmas. Apparently this was the only restaurant open, there were a lot of people. The food was good, but nothing special. Popular with locals, too. The price is fair but don't expect anything fancy.

Its not bad food, but its not good food either. Average, nothing special. The rule of thumb for me on a Chinese Buffet is, if there are few customers then the buffet can't be fresh, and if the Buffet is not fresh then there can't be a lot of customers. There was not a lot of customers at 6:30 on... More

It is so so but we all have a fave Chinese at home. You won't be disappointed and certain dishes are great. Just don't expect it to be better than you're favorite Chinese back home. Jello desert and sliced oranges speak volumes but the fried food is not greasy and they have a primal salad bar.
