We only have a few Asian/Chinese options in Bedford, and this is the best one in town, hands down. Whether the food is authentic Asian or not, or another Americanized version, I couldn’t say, but it’s the best we have here!

By far, the best chinese restaurant in Bedford. There's not as many items on the buffet as the other Chinese buffet, but the restaurant is MUCH cleaner and the food is prepared much better. The staff is very friendly.
