    Came here with a rather large group of people. Thought it was pretty cool that we were the only group there. Not sure if the restaurant was not open yet or if no one really likes to eat there .

    Food was your basic buffet food. A lot of meats and seafood and some veggie options. I wish there was more but I wasn't paying the bill so I'm not going to complain.  Tried a few of their dishes. Salt and pepper pork, salt and pepper fish, sweet and sour chicken, chow fun to name a few. There we're more just don't remember what they were. Overall everything I had was pretty good. Not too greasy or anything. I did have their thin noodle chow mein and I thought that was really dry so I didn't go back for seconds on that. At the end of your meal you can take the vanilla ice cream from the dessert section and place into a cup and make root beer floats.  That's what a lot of us did. I wish I had left room to try other desserts but didn't so I may have missed out on some yummy goodness. Maybe next time.

    Bathrooms were kind of gross and dirty. And when I say gross and dirty I mean, I'm not sure how you miss if you're sitting  I guess it was a squatter. ‍ Kind of odd since the restaurant wasn't crowded at all.

    Haven't been there for about a year. Was very happy to visit this old favorite restaurant with a few friends.

    Sunday night.

    We paid at the cashier before entering the restaurant. I was excited to see that they actually offered senior discount! And guess what- one of our friends just turned 66!

    Ha I've never qualified for senior discount in my whole life- as I was excited to point it out to the cashier, she scolded me in front of everyone: YOU SHOULD HAVE TOLD ME! NOW I HAVE TO REFUND YOU 1 DOLLAR!

    Come on- it's only 1 dollar! And humiliation and embarrassment totally wiped my joy away! I murmured and said you could just give me cash if that's easier. She went one scolding- IF YOU WANTED IT TO BE EASIER FOR ME, YOU SHOULD HAVE TOLD ME EARLIER!

    Ok, so this is not the first time that we were treated like this by this boss lady/ cashier lady. She was always grumpy all these 5 years that we visited the restaurant. But hey she is vocal too.

    Well be ready to be bosses around/ scolded when you dine here dear customer

    Just like...don't even bother. I know what you're thinking: it's lunch time, it's a buffet, I'm about to eat this shit like groceries. But think about it from my perspective, as I sit here with an upset stomach and write this to you: don't do it sis. It's not worth it. Their food is garbage and their meat is questionable and that's coming from someone who's a fav of cheese wiz. Just walk away.

    "It just isn't good" says my friend as I read this review to her.

    Was hopeful... paying $17.99 per person.
    Stale old food that was sitting there for hours. Like 80-90% of it. At least their soup was hot.
    A waitress said "really no tip?"
    (She honestly did not do anything to deserve it. I understand when waiters and waitress go out of your way and when some greet you and be nice but she didn't do anything but pick up a few plates. it's self serve utensils, napkins and drinks...)
    I said, yeah all your food was hard and stale.

    If I could give zero stars, I would! 1st, there were kids running wildly all over almost knocking me down at times while we got our food.  The kids were also eating with their hands straight from the salad portion.  Also, the food was severely picked over and hardly anything left.  While we were there for about 45 minutes,  nobody ever brought out ANY new food.  In fact, the staff all went and sat down and took the remaining white rice from the buffet and made their plates.  After that, i was awske from 3am on wanting to vomit and had a horrible headache.   DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY.   I'm not sure what we paid for because there was really no food and the remnants were old
