A huge variety of authentic Chinese dishes including some rarely seen at such buffets (steamed taro buns!) as well as the more popular Chinese dishes and more Americanized offerings. On the buffet were shrimp at least seven different ways, crab four different ways, Popeyes-like (!) fried chicken wings, finely made chive boxes, fragrant lotus-wrapped sticky-rice bundles filled with pork and mushrooms, and steamed roast-pork buns that had the perfect amount of savory-sweet pork filling inside. Fries and fried sugared donuts were always hot. Friendly staff. Also, we lucked out because kids ten and under eat for free on Fridays. We ate well, and we'll definitely be back!

This is a no-frills sort of place that you can get a variety of good, filling chinese food and not spend an arm and a leg. The dishes range from very authentic to obviously American, and I like them all! My favorites are the bbq chicken and the dim sum like options. They usually have a good fish option, but sometimes its overcooked. It's always a full and happy place, with friendly waiters and good selection. Drinks are extra.

What kind of person would call an an all you could eat restauraunt a pig trough in a review. Apparently they hold themselves above everyone else who goes there. Every time my family has gone there, we have loved the food and liked the fact that it's kid friendly. I've been in expensive restauraunts and I would prefer to be able to choose out of the myriad of dishes that they have available .

I used to eat here frequently, but I got turned off by several things. First, some of my favorite dishes were often over-cooked and sometimes swimming in grease (the broccoli chicken comes to mind). So it didn't exactly excite me as a source for healthy eating, which I've kind of come to expect from Chinese food. It seemed like they loved to simmer fresh vegetables in grease. I felt that if I kept eating their greasy fare, I would get fat as a pig! Secondly, (speaking of pigs!), I really grew tired of the swell of people in there at lunch-time, all crowding around the serving tables like a bunch of pigs in a pen. You see, there's no ""start"" or ""finish"" pattern to the serving table area, so it is like a big free-for-all. I saw people rudely crowd in to get their serving, and push other people aside. Often times parents had unruly or bawling kids with them, too. Man, the place got to be just like a barnyard! And thirdly, I got extremely annoyed with the wait staff. The place is crawling with waiters and waitresses, but, they don't really DO much, because, since it's a self-serve buffet, you, the customer, do most of the work. And yet, the wait people always seemed to insinuate that you give them a big tip! The worst thing is, several times I had wait-persons bring me my check and then take my money up to the cash register, but then they disappeared and never brought me my change! I hate to be so down on the place, as I will concede that it does have positive potential: it's got a HUGE parking lot, the place is big enough to accomodate large lunch-time crowds, and they do make an effort to put out a large variety of Asian-themed foods. Excellent dessert bar, too. But due to the three negative areas I've just listed, I won't be going back here any time soon.
...but honestly I was not at all impressed. The flavour of the food was sub-par. The General Tso's Chicken was a delight. There were only three pieces of sushi on the bar. The only piece that looked appetizing was a tuna roll. It was flaky and dry.
The mongolian bar was lacking flavour an options. Most of the items on both the raw bar, and the hot bars were nearly out or sut gone. Not to mention half of the food tasted old and was rather dried out.
The staff seemed to care more about their own dinner than ours.
I asked for a sweet tea, and was given an unsweet with a rather strange flavour. I made it very clear when i asked if they actually had presweetened tea. I was told yes. I changed my order for a Coke and then was given a pepsi. Another major pet peeve of mine. There is a big difference between the delciousness of Coca-Cola and the tooth rotting "beverage" known as Pepsi. But this is just my own personal preference. And as a server/waiter myself, I always let people know the drink my restaurant carries.
The only reason i gave this place two stars was because it might have just been an off night. But honestly, I will not be returning, and i was very dissapointed.

I use to love going here when it first opened, my favorite was the chow mein and crab rangoons, but as the years have gone by the quality of the food, and the cleanliness of the place has gone down hill. Not only that but the prices have gone up adn weekends are the worse. For three of us we paid about 45 dollars. I understand it's buffet but usually weekends have good deals.

My boyfriend and I had driven by this place just off of Aurora by Sears and the Central Market, and it looked kind of sketchy. Fortunatley, our friends recommended it to us. It is usually very busy, but it is a great buffet. Lots of seafood, even decent sushi and a Monglian Grill where you pick out what you want and they fry it up for you--all of it is all you can eat. They have crab rangoon, oysters on the half shell, stir fries, dessert bar, fresh fruit, salad bar, and even some things like chicken strips and fried fish and french fries for those who aren't into Asian food so much. Dinner is only 11.25 per person, and it's all you can eat. Definately great for families.
