I wouldn't have given this business a single star but I wanted to be able to save people their good money and was forced to rate it with at least 1 star to leave a review.
I stopped by this restaurant tonight and decided to give it another try. Big, big mistake. I specifically ask the cashier/hostess when she seated me if they still served crab legs. "Yes" I was informed.
I was seated and ordered my drink and then proceeded to the crab legs and realized that I should have asked if they served thawed crab legs. The meat inside the claw was still frozen. I had also put some fried shrimp on my plate which was fried so hard that I couldn't even bite into it. And the biscuit was the same way, hard, crusty and inedible. Within 5 minutes of being seated I went up to the cashier/hostess and explained my experience. She said she would call the manager and when he wobbled over to the cash register I explained to him my experience and he said "mi fod s as good as what yew get at HEB". I told him that this was far from the quality of what HEB sells and furthermore at theirs is edible.
On my way out to my car I stopped a group of 6 people going in to the restaurant and told them of my experience and recommended they go over to Beijing Express next door for an enjoyable dinner. Luckily they heeded my advice and got back into their car and drove away. I wish someone would have done the same for me before I was forced to pay over $10 for this "buffet" which was by far the worst chinese buffet I have ever stepped foot in. Save your money folks, eat for less and have a very appetizing dinner at one of the other fine restaurants within a few feet of China Sea 3 across from the Embassy Theatres.

After trying all the chinese restaurants in SA, I finally found one that has good food. The only drawback is the service. If you like your waiter hovering over you to whisk away your plate before you even finish, then you should be happy. My husband accidently forgot to sign the credit card slip and the waitress proceeded to yell at him to come back to sign it, of course the place was full of people. And of course, if he didn't sign it, he didn't add the tip, because he hadn't looked at it because he was busy talking to someone he had run into, so the waitress, in a rather loud voice, asked was the service bad, was he not going to leave a tip, was he not happy with the service. Well, of course he was going to leave a tip, he made a simple mistake and didn't deserve to be yelled at. All she had to do was say, sir, I need for you to sign your cc slip and he would have seen the tip. It is rude and unprofessional to beg for a tip. We did enjoy the food, we did not enjoy the service of being hovered over. All you need there is to have your drinks refilled. Not someone touching your fork and removing every plate everytime you put your fork down. Don't know if we will go back or not.

I have been to a few chinese buffets and I have to say they are not my favorite. But this place is okay. The variety is there and each dish has it own distinct flavor. The place is neat and clean. The sushi is fresh, the rice is new, soft and season well. The variety on the buffet table get changed out frequently, so it looks fresh. The staff is very friendly, the dirty dishes get clear out right away and your drink is always filled. The decor is very nice. Good place for people who can't decided on a single dish...they can sample a few dishes.
