Went here because LaFortune was closed..... Buffet, and I hate buffets. Hot and Sour Soup was ok. Egg rolls were ok, except not crisp after sitting in steam table..... Sushi was fair...not much assortment. Rice was mushy....not gummy or sticky....gummy. Entrees were everything wrong with buffets when the food sits for hours....everyting was mushy and unappetizing....chicken, beef, green pepper, broccoli,... More

Not the best food. Okay sometimes but sporadic. Soup is the best dish. LA Fortune is the better option for Chinese food in Madisonville.

Its ok if you are in a hurry. I would not take friends there looking for good Chinese food. Mostly chicken dishes, egg rolls are tough. They speak Chinese and talk very loudly all of the time.

I like the food sold in small town Chinese restaurants actually. I go here occasionally for lunch and get the buffet. I just make sure I go early when they are keeping the dishes hot and well-supplied. The hot and sour soup is actually very good. The assortment of egg rolls and wontons are pretty good as well. No wontons... More

Good food at reasonable price. Two steam tables plus sushi bar and desert bar. We eat there often, my son and I. His wife does not care for Chinese food.

A lot of loud shouting between staff. Yelling to each other from kitchen to dining room. That was very annoying. Buffet was very large several items had been there for a long time but overall the food tasted very good, better than it looked.

We had stopped here around 2:00 on a Saturday and there was out! The rice was gone we had to ask for more. There was maybe two spoons full of food in every container. Nothing much to choose from at all. Everything was covered w a plastic lid to help keep the food hot which is horrible bc it almost... More

Worst Chinese I have ever had. Sweet and sour pork was just died pork with a container of sauce. Old fry oil left after taste. Had to throw it out after one bite.
