"But if you like Shrimp, you should enjoy it."
"The fried rice is somehow still white but glossy."
"Except the coconut shrimp which was so sweet it was sickening."

THE GOOD: plenty of food selection. Restaurant seemed pretty clean. Good amount of clientele eating there. The lighting is cool and the chandeliers are beautiful. Prices are decent! THE BAD: the waitresses are SO FAST cleaning off your table you barely have time to get out if their way. It's not like there weren't any tables available.... At least let me walk away before swooping in! THE UGLY: all of the food tasted pretty much the same - bland. Except the coconut shrimp which was so sweet it was sickening. There was no umami.... No savoriness.... Nothing. Not even the jello had taste. How can jello have no taste? I read the previous reviews and thought I'd give it the benefit of the doubt and try it. It was really disappointing. I most likely will not go back.

The food sucks. The bourbon chicken tastes like it was cooked in soapy dishwater. The fried rice is somehow still white but glossy. The Pepsi is the best thing I've had here. I haven't even gotten up to pay yet. It better not be pricey.

Went there for the first time for lunch, it's a decent place, buffet has alot of variety, and the food is pretty good (except for the desserts, which were dried out). It's a great value. However, staff were kind of rude, never saying a "thank you" or "have a nice day" or anything like that. Also, later on, my stomach felt very sour for the entire night, not sure if this was the buffet or not. Give it a try though!

Probably one of the larger buffets in the area. The food is always fresh and the staff are always helpful.

This place use to be called the Mongolian Grill. It was an order in or take out Chinese place and that didn't work. So they changed it to a Buffet. The original owners had better food and a better selection of dishes. There are newer owners there now and they don't serve Mussels any more; he said the got too expensive. In the mean time, their prices have gone up. Its now 7.95 for lunch including tax, provided you don't order a soda, thats even more. If you go there for lunch and get there when the food if first put out, a lot of its not bad, or even good some days. General TSO chicken is OK and I like the sauce, Chinese veggies are pretty good and not swimming in fat and cheese. Dishes to avoid, their Salmon. Its swimming in butter and cheese. Italian Chicken, which is white meat chicken slices with a bottled Italian dressing on it, yuck. They do have a Shrimp in vegetables dish thats OK, but I won't eat Shrimp, too high in Cholesterol. But if you like Shrimp, you should enjoy it. Depending on the season, they usually have a good selection of fresh fruits for dessert. They use to have Hershey's Ice Cream, but that's gone, some cheaper variety for dessert now. I still go there when I've had a very light breakfast and want a LOT of food. I only eat the dishes that I know are good. Other things I don't touch. But, what can you expect from a Chinese Buffet?

In my opinion the food doesn't have much flavor. There's a decent selection but I don't really enjoy going there.
