This is a regular call while visiting Siesta Key. Food is always hot, tasty and fresh. Hot and sour soups is a particular favourite.

This is by far my favorite place to eat Chinese food. The buffet is always hot and the food is excellent. Love there coconut shrimp and soups. We go there at least 2 or 3 times a month.

Excellent buffet. The variety is excellent and always nicely presented. It has been voted best Chinese buffet in Sarasota for several years.
