Plenty to choose from and over ate as usual. Was pleased to see steak on the buffet that was grilled well. Everything else was good and tasty.

If you are on a fixed budget and looking for a buffet, by all means eat here! The food is also hot and is cycled often. Saying that, the food wasn't very tasty. Dessert was good but the dinner items could use some improvement. Staff was extremely nice. Don't want to knock the place, just wasn't what I was looking... More

Not bad for a Chinese buffet! We were greeted promptly at the front door. The staff was super attentive. The food was hot and tasted perfect. Definitely should try it!

This 100% buffet with mo menu choices. We went late so with a buffet you have to be a little tolerant of over cooked or dried out food but this place had nothing but poorly presented food. Tastes were bland. Many items not labeled and with the poor presentation you have no idea what it is. They have the thinnest... More

We ate here on a Saturday at about 1pm. Restraunt was at about 50% seating capacity. We were seated promptly, food was on the pleasant side of good. It was better than most other Chinese buffets we had eaten at. One downside was that the soft-serve ice cream machine was being cleaned, so there was no ice cream for desert.... More

The only reason I gave this place a two star rating is because the service was good. Otherwise, the food was lukewarm and tasteless. Even the iceberg lettuce was old and brown. I won't go back.

The food here at this Buffet restaurant was cold, dry certainly been sitting for a long time. Staff conveniently forgot how to speak English when I complained. I was forced to pay full price even though I ate nothing. Saw a couple of other reviews that Said the same occurred to them. When I ask for the Manager, there was... More
