Very unfriendly, food not that good. Waitress was very friendly. Probably not going back. Wasn't asked how everything was and not thanked when I paid my bill. Cashier too busy jabbering in Chinese to another employee. Have eaten in Chinese restaurant in many places and this is by far the worst. Don't wast your time and money.

If you go at peak times, like between 12:30 PM and 1:30 PM for lunch, and 5-6 PM for dinner, the food will be fresh. Unfortunately, when you go at off times, it can be lukewarm, and a huge disappointment. Sunday afternoon is the best, as it is steady busy from lunch through 7PM.

My husband and I "dined" here a time or two more than 10 years ago. Now I see why we didn't go back until now. It's dreadful. The buffet choices were limited to such Chinese mainstays as party mix, cheesy puffs, and Mexican chicken, whatever that is. Oh, and cheese with macaroni. Most dishes were cold to medium lukewarm.

We try to avoid buffets and non organic foods in general, but our secret indulgence is the Hong Kong buffet . The soups are very good and I really enjoy the calamari. It is the main reason I go there. During the day they serve sautéed rice noodles with vegetables, one of my favorite dishes and in the evenings they... More

Actually, Chinese Canteen could be better than this. Being a Chinese, I swear not to come here for another single time. It's all about chicken, totally a disaster for a beef and mutton lover. The only good is the nice waitress. The price is low. Considering the food quality, however, it is too expensive.

Nice waiter, food is alright. Some stuff is good actually. There were some things that were a bit oily, but most chinese foods are.

My family and me are Chinese, so maybe our expectations were a bit high, but we enjoyed. Service was good, and food was fresh. We would recomend.

OK place -- would only try it once. Food was ok but nothing special. Decor is worn and rundown. Staff was nice.
