We wanted Chinese food, and would have gone here but it is out of business. Turns out Wil--from the hotel--knew of a great place called the Super China Buffet, and we went there. WOW that was a great place. The food was perfect.

Not too good. The buffet is big but the variety is not there. The billboards tout AYCE crab legs but there were none. We were told we had to wait a while for them. We are still waiting.

The food is so so but the manager was very rude. He's too stuck up and if you're not American, he won't even smile at you. He offended one of my friends and we complained. He didn't even apologized. I don't recommend this restaurant. We're...More
