Quality food. Small, family place ambience.

I've been eating here for seven years. I guess I'm a regular. It is a family-owned place, and the younger generation handle public contact. They are hard-working, and completely approachable. Some of the waitstaff have limited English skills. I guess some folks have a problem with that. Get over it. It is part of the charm.

The food is MUCH better than average Chinese buffet fare. It is fresh, small-batch prepared, and has flavor. Most of the giant buffets' food all tastes the same,

The hot and sour soup is a bit oily, true, but very flavorful. I've introduced a dozen or so people over the years, and half of them are regulars now, too.

My worst dining experience

I had always wanted to go for a chinese buffet and now I have almost decided that I will never go for one again. We were all pretty excited about this place as they offered buffet for dinner too. But the entrance was weird with broken glasses and window panes...poor first impression :( The inner ambience was really awkward and the food was stale. It said that the food was changed at 4.00 P.M everyday but it did not looked or tasted like that. The worst part was when the waitress gave t...view morehe check when we were not even half done. We were almost ready to leave even before fininshing our dinner. Totally disgusting experience. This is my first review in any site but I really want to say - Please dont think about this place.view less

Average Out of Sympathy...

Maybe we went on a bad day but...this place was not that good. : ( \r
We went there for the lunch buffet, there are two and half small isles of food to choose from so if you are looking for variety look elsewhere. There again...I might have gone on a bad day, I think tihs place has been in business for a long time so if they are not a front, they must make something I did not try. It is worth finding out for yourself, and I would recomend going there at least once. Happy eating
...view more, and the fortune cookies were good! The ice tea kind of reminded me of rio grande river water. :D\r

Great Flavors and Great Service

My family and I have eaten here frequently. At lunch it is full of local area workers that have discovered it. At night it is a great place to go for a pleasant, peaceful evening. I have always had exceptional service and courtesy -that's one of the main reasons I dine here. The buffet isn't as large as some other places, but the quality and the flavor of the food is much better than other buffets I have tried. This place is a favorite place of mine to run into for lunch, or to take ...view moremy family in the evening.view less

mediocre food, poor service, rude management

We tried this buffet recently and were sat at a table with a broken chair. I noticed this before I sat down and told the waiter when he came by because I figured they could take this away so some unsuspecting customer wouldn't fall when they sat down. He seemed to not understand what I was saying, so I saw the manager come by and mentioned the chair to her in case they wanted to replace it. She came around to look at it and explained to my party how to ""rig"" it so it would not tip...view more over and proceeded to put it right back in place at our table. Bizarre. We will not be going back, needless to say, the fact that the food was mediocre notwithstanding.view less

tasty Chinese food

It's a nice place to bring your family for dinner. The atmosphere there is very friendly. Though they don't have a very large selection for buffet, you have a lot to choose from the menu. Most items are are as tasty as I had when I visited China.

Flavorless food, oily hot & sour soup, had to find someone for a drink refill. However, the soft serve ice cream was creamy rather than icy.
