Was surprised at how good some of the traditional dishes were (sechwan and seseme chicken, sweet and sour, hunan pork) that are offered as part of the buffet. Prce is good too. A good spot for people with large appetites.

This is a great spot for a quick and tasty Chinese buffet. Been going for 20 years and have been happy everytime. Keep up the good work.

wide assortment buffet, typical offerings, but made fresh and kept updated from kitchen frequently. usually, order off menu specials as I favor three of their broccoli offerings. no msg is standard on the menu but some of the buffet does contain it.

The place has a cafeteria feel to it. However the daily buffet is pretty good with lots of choices.If you miss the buffet, don't worry, the menu is awesome. Order two things per person and you will be stuffed and taking home a container. Ma...More

I generally only go here for the buffet, and I like the fact that it is ALWAYS predictable in terms of what is on the steam table. The down side is that it rarely changes. Each dish is generally good, the staff keep the buffet...More
