great value, my go-to for Chinese food and sushi – unique decoration, incl. a waterfall and pond w/ koi fish in it (the kids enjoy feeding the fish--they ask the manager for some fish food).
usual selection of American Chinese buffet food, but a greater variety of sushi and seafood, plus a nice cheesecake that's half cheesecake and half vanilla cake.
There is a hibachi grill (not a mongolian grill--I'm looking at you, reviewer FattyVM). There's also a menu you can order from for dining in, take out, or delivery. I've never had a prob w/ my orders here, and I'm pretty picky (add this, hold that, mild-med. spicy). And they offer buffet to-go.
2nd trip ensured there would not be a 3rd. – This is me and my significant others second trip over to Latham to try this place after reading, and re-reading the reviews online. I would like to inform anyone who cares that it would also be our last. The first trip was early afternoon, we assumed that because it was between lunch and dinner that the food was either non-existent or bordering on inedible (some was luke-warm, some was greasier than standard fare at McDonald's, while some just tasted like garbage. I'm looking at YOU lo-mein, General Tso's and little dumplings.)
Our second trip was at 6 PM on a Saturday afternoon, so our previous excuse didn't hold water, and to add now that it was busy, we were openly ignored by most of the wait staff for the 40 minutes we sat picking over some of the more edible fare (some of the sushi isn't bad, neither is the very sparse and non-varying "Mongolian grill" using the term very lightly in this case.)
To anyone with a means to travel another 5 minutes who absolutely must find a decent Chinese buffet, try the Capital Buffet on wolf, or better yet the Dragon Buffet in Colonie on Central Ave.
