The restaurant is so close to our hotel so we decided to take a walk to this restaurant. To us the selection was not great as someone mentioned compare with other Chinese buffet. Some food was cold as someone mentioned in previous review. I had to tell the waitress and then they crank up the heat. I got some food... More

I'm from Canada and where I come from a buffet of this quality would cost $34 dollars. I was very satisfied with my $8.50 meal.

Have met Friends there several times over the past few years (not my choice of Restaurant), and each time waited too long to be sat and the servers/Staff were minimally interactive.

I put in special request for veg.fried rice. That was full of veggies for which I am happy, but oily and the oil... More

I visited here on a recent Sunday to have a later lunch (2:30pm). I was passing through town from Syracuse and needed a quick bite for lunch. The restaurant was fairly busy when I arrived (that always is a good sign). It was your typical Chinese Buffet food. The employees (cooks) were always coming out to replenish the hot food... More

Lots to choose from. You will find something to eat here. Take a small portion of each to see what you like. Price was its salvation!

the selection is outstanding although it's heavily skewed to chicken dishes. many of the dishes i selected were unchewable and probably undigestible. I simply couldn't bring myself to swallow a lot of the food...couldn't treat my stomach that way. The service was.....well, to tell the truth, it was the first time I had NO service.
