This is our go-to spot for good Chinese food. They offer a buffet every day; and since it is always busy the food is fresh and replenished frequently. I'm very picky about buffets generally but have always come away from this place satisfied. Nothing fancy and they only serve soft drinks -- no beer or wine license. Quick, reasonably priced...

The customer volume here is such that the buffet is always being refreshed. A wide variety of very good Chinese specialties at a very, very low price. No alcoholic beverages served.

I have been going to this place for years. It has changed owners more than once. The egg rolls which were great now suck.The plates are so salty that I cant eat them .To much MSG I would assump.So disappointed, another one bites the dust. I will now take my business to the Chinese place in James City.

Like many Chinese restaurants, there is a buffet. It is small with a limited selection. The offerings are pretty good though and the shrimp was better than I've had on some other buffets. Of the Chinese restaurants in town, it's not the best, but it's okay. Since I love shrimp, I would go back for that. The crispy honey wings... More

The food was just average. Sushi was sc.arce with few choices. Could add more flavor to man of the dishes. The staff is friendly and quick to clear the plates away

This is a typical neighborhood Chinese restaurant but with a big difference in the buffet - dinner for $6.99. A wide variety of well prepared traditional Chinese and with the volume of business the hot dishes are constantly refreshed. Salad and dessert bar. Limited choice of wine but at $3.50 for a very full glass I can do without a... More
