We can only rate the lunch buffet. It was--innocuous. Most of the food was 1950s style Cantonese-inspired meals with heavy emphasis on carbohydrates. The pan-fried ravioli had a very nice filling but the covering was thick and doughy. Egg rolls were also heavy. The wonton...More

My wife and I stopped in here for lunch during one of our Saturday visits to Lexington. It was very good. I rather liked my General Gao's chicken and she her vegetable fried rice. Portion sizes are generous

The atmosphere is very welcoming and the service is number one. Started with a delicious cold Mai Tai followed by sweet and sour chicken and delicious fried rice. Needless to say leftovers were taken home. Even better the next day.
