Hard to get to off of Newtown Pike. The decor is outdated. The food was of poor quality, tasted like it had sat around for a while. Will not go back

Used to only hear great things about this place and had even had pleasant visits in the past. However, that all changed after my last visit. I will not be back, the food was absolutely terrible. I rarely leave bad reviews but when I do they are justified. If you want a Chinese buffet I highly suggest finding another one.... More

Hubby and I were in Lexington on a business trip. We were both disappointed with the buffet, I did not like any of the entrees that I had. We are not picky about food, but this was bad. The banana pudding was good. Went back the motel and ate popcorn.

Look - you're only paying about $10 for a drink and all you can eat. Maybe we were lucky with our timing, but we found a nice variety of food offered, it was hot and there was plenty of it. And it was good! Not gourmet, but very good. There were the usual dishes such as fried shrimp, general tso's... More

Alright, I admit it, the place looks like it was once a Mississippi Catfish House, but don't let appearances deceive you. Shabby, perhaps. Appointments & fixtures aging? Sure, but let's get real, you're coming for the food! I'd never eaten here before, but was very pleasantly surprised! What I tasted was delicious overall! General Tso Chicken was cooked with whole...

Food mediocre - likewise for service and restaurant cleanliness. I would not return. Structure is aging and showing the signs of a property in need of restoration.

To be fair, my friends did enjoy eating here in the past. And we did arrive quite late in the evening, probably not long before close. This is a buffet, so food is laid out already, and we were some of the last people here. My advice is if you are going to eat here, go during rush where maybe... More

The ambience at this typical Chinese buffet is ZERO, As soon as you enter, you'll wonder of you're in a restaurant or a very messy business office. The food is poor or tasteless. The servers look they might be part of a human trafficking ring. Seriously. Many dishes on the buffet, but quite a few have been sitting there for... More

Didn't know anything about this restaurant and we just took a chance for lunch today. The food was plentiful, delicious and a ton of variety. Even had a nice salad bar, dessert bar and soft serve cones, and yummy Hot & Sour soup. People had fresh, delicious cooked shrimp piled high on their plates. Price was super affordable. We may...
