Worst Chinese I've ever had – I strongly suspect that at least one of the above favorable reviews came from ownership or someone otherwise biased, because the food is awful. Sure, parking is good and seating is prompt--because no one wants to eat there. I live in town, and I will not go there again. Sushi had been out for so long that it was dry on the outside. Nothing redeeming about any other buffet items. I actually had to go eat somewhere else afterward, even though I like Chinese buffet, because I did not find enough palatable food to get full. Seriously.

Good Chinese for the price – Good chinese food for the price. Lots of parking and easy to find. You have to go there during the peak hours(Lunch 12pm-2pm & dinner 6pm-8pm) for fresh and yummy food. Can't go there in the middle of the day and expect fresh food on the buffet bar. Great for fast and cheap lunch. I love going there during my lunch hour. Waitress are friendly and the place is so big you never really need to wait too long.

THE WORST CHINESE FOOD EVER! – This restaurant might have fast service, but the food could not have been any worse.

It was so bad, not fresh and of sickening quality.

The food cause two of my family members to literally bring their food back up right after they ate it.

If you ever want to go to a buffett restaurant, do your research. Do not choose this restaurant. You will regret it. The food is terrible and so is the seating. There is cigarette smoke everywhere.

After eating at this restaurant, I would rather starve. The food was so bad, that not even the staff could acknowledge it.

Do not ever go to this restaurant to eat. The food is very very poor.

WORST chinese buffet in my LIFE – Ok, first off, it was more humid inside that it was outdoors. We were in the "non smoking" section but smelled smoke the whole time. The sushi was under warming lights for goodness sake, and any idiot knows not to put raw fish under a warmer! I tried a piece and the rice was nearly hot! YUCK! Of course,,no flavor as well. The long beans (chinese green beans) granted are supposed to have a garlic flavor but these tasted like it was a garlic dish accented by a few green beans. SO STRONG!!! My husband got a few meat dishes and he said every single one was worst than the one before. He said the wonton soup was awful. The 3rd person with us just sat there and kept saying "This is just SO bad, this has GOT to be the worst chinese food I have ever had and I have eaten all over the country" When I got there I was so hungry but very quickly literally lost my appetite. I ate what appeared to be baby bock choy to fill the void in my belly but even after 3 peices of that, I stopped.

The building is SO large, we all assumed it was some other type of restaurant before. It is also apparent they must not be able to afford to keep the A/C on to cool the whole place because it was so uncomfortably humid and warm in there.

I absolutely CANNOT comprehend why ANYONE would even REMOTELY consider this good chinese food in the very least. We ate there 2 nights ago for supper and are still saying " Man that was so bad,,, we never should have stopped there"

When it was time to pay the bill, my husband was worried about what I'd say because if I have to pay for a bad meal, they will hear from me that I didnt like it. The guy at the register was so polite that when he asked if we enjoyed our meal I just replied "It was ok I guess" and left. I figured we wont ever reurn anyway and if other people want to go there and ruin their meal times, well , thats on them,

I dont know any other way to express just how nasty the food was!

And TURN ON THE A/C for heaven's sake!!
