This a great place for a buffet. Lots of variety starting from their starters to deserts. The presentation is okay. Though the ambience is beautiful.

The variety of this buffet was astounding. The food was hot and well-prepared and looked quite fresh for a buffet. Everything tasted delicious. The made-to-order stir fry was such a treat. The variety of non-Chinese food met the need for some of our family; the rest were in 7th heaven with the Chinese food.

The food is tasty and reasonably priced. We have started getting carry out here because it is by the pound, and an excellent value. The store is a little run down, but the staff is friendly, and there is always seating available.

This restaurant has been a favorite in our family for more than 15 years. We go every week and often bring guests. It's just great. It varies from 4-5 stars on the food quality, but no one in their right mind could ever complain. It's a self service buffet, but if you need anything special like fresh lemons the staff... More

I have been going to this place for at least 10 years. When it first opened it was a treat. However, over the years it did start to look a little run down. However my last visit I was pleasantly surprised, it had, had a face lift. It was a nice surprise to see it back on form. It is... More
