We were celebrating a birthday and the staff brought drinks but no refills. I saw them pick up two of our plates the whole time. It was very slow and they... More

Really wished I had not gone here. What was that over used spice? The crab legs were ok but very small.

This buffet style restaurant has a good variety of food. My grandkids like the pizza, noodles, fruit and soft serve icecream. My favorite is the Mongolian style food. You pick the raw main ingredients and they cook it before your eyes. I do not like a lot of msg or corn starch in my food, this has none.

The staff seated us right away and asked if we wanted a table or booth. Took our drink order and we proceeded to get our food. They have a vast variety of food to choose from and it was great. When our drinks were low we asked for more and they promptly refilled our drink. The place was clean and... More

The only contact you have with a waitress is to take your drink order and pay the bill,otherwise not very attentive. They are busy speaking to each other in Chinese, sometimes I think they are talking about the customers.. Food is good.

Food was stale, and had been sitting for much longer than it should have. Flavors poor, selection poor, servers poor. A pretty unsatisfactory experience.

Popped in here one lunchtime while on a trip. Nce buffet with lots of choices, normal Chinese Buffet items. They also had a sushi bar. Nice thing was that the buffet area was actually separate from the dining area, Very reasonable price for an all you wanted to eat lunch.

Always good, always fresh, always clean. Never had a bad meal here, ever. Attentive wait-staff and a variety of seating options. Nice walled room for business meetings if advance notice is given.
