We like Chinese buffet (I know Chinese food purists would turn their noses up at this food - I liked it and I liked the more authentic food in Seattle - go figure), and this had a pretty good selection. The BBQ pork was a nice addition. The older woman who was cleaning and setting was very friendly and waved... More

I have eaten here for 14 years. At one time it was owned by father and son and the buffet was outstanding. Now in the hands of the daughter in law It is becoming harder to stomach. The expensive dishes are refilled slowly leaving various deep fried meats and sauces and lots of rice and noodles to fill your plate... More

I once eat here twice a week but the the food went south. If you show up early the buffet looks great but as the day goes on the buffet line goes bad. The lack of attention to the looks of the food was a big turn off. at times it looked like it had been there for a week.... More

If you are looking for any kind of Asian food in Cheney, this is the only place in town. My friend who lives here also informs me that it's the only sit-down place for lunch that has food worth eating. I've eaten here twice now and it's been fairly consistent. The buffet line runs all the usual favorites and they... More

This is a very very small buffet with very little choice and the food is just not that good. I am sorry but I would not recommend this place for anyone.

Much better than most buffets, and a whole lot better than you would expect from a place this far out in the sticks. The food is made in very small batches so it is always fresh and tasty. For a small venue, the selection is huge - lots and lots of different stuff, and for the coup de gras: Old-fashioned... More

When we lived in Cheney, we did carry-out here about once a week. It's great "American" Chinese food (meaning not the kind you'll find in Shanghai!). The people are friendly. The buffet is extensive and carefully tended. Overall, an excellent dining experience. We don't like to eat in restaurants, but this dining room appears to be large and comfortable for... More

Their food is good. What I like about them is their consistancy. Whatever your selection, it tastes the same every time you go. It definitely fills the asian food void in Cheney. And your choices here are: this place or Safeway. I'll take this place ten times out of ten with those options...

I only at at this restaurant once, and I'll never eat there again. The food was horrible, the only thing on the buffet I could stomach was the fruit. The people who owned the restaurant were there(at least I assumed they were the owners), and they would stare at us from across the room, say something to each other in... More
