the food was mostly what was left from lunch, was not fresh at all, especially the desert cakes - dry as, wouldn't go back to this unless it was later & food had been replaced. Great staff though

There were lots of cars in the parking lot so we thought it would be a good place to eat. This was a Saturday evening and when we went inside there was only one other couple eating there. The sign inside the entrance said you had to pay first. The food looked like it had been sitting there all day. I'm surprised the heath department lets them stay open. When we left we realized that the building across the parking lot was a movie theatre which explained all the cars.

This is basically the worst Chinese buffet I've ever been too. I should've checked TripAdvisor first. Bad food (kinda stunk in a weird way), rude service, filthy bathroom. Avoid at all costs. Should not be in business taking people's money.

Not good. Locals avoid. Needs signs to tell what the heck you're eating. Weirdest Chinese place I have been too.

We have eaten at this place a couple of times and the second time was 'worse' than the first. That's interesting to say because it is so 'popular' for lots of food but not very good food. You would think that the Chinese would be good but it was average. They also serve American but that is poor for a place that serves so many. We had to wait a long time the last time we were there and each time we drive by now we'd rather go up the road to the Panda Express.
