Went out for someone's birthday and was their choice to go here. I had the buffet supper. It was good, all fresh, hot. Quite a few items for the price of 13.00. My favorite is ginger beef and this one was good. Friendly staff.

We went to the buffet, a la carte available as well. The food is pretty good, somewhat limited selection of Chinese and Western cuisine, ditto for the buffet's dessert and salad bar. Not crowded at least when we went, very good and attentive service. Seniors...More
