Our family of four had great food (all of it) and the place was bigger & nicer than expected and very clean. We've been passing this place for years on our way to & from lake Wally and a friend mentioned that they go there...and love it, so I figured we'd finally try it, now it's gonna be a stop we make every time. The hostess & buss-girl were very nice and accommodating. For the price, you can't beat this deal, especially with ravenous teenage boys.More

Walking in the door, we came face to face with a huge fish tank that looked sad, and not very clean. The carpet? Buckled and looked dirty, duct taped to another piece of different color carpet. A smear of something orange on the white wall...behind the ice cream. Some of the food was greasy and unappetizing. The only bright spot of the experience was our waitress, who was energetic, even though her English, along with all the other employees, was difficult if not impossible to understand. Wearing masks was mandatory until seated, but this was not enforced.More

The food was dry and overcooked. The taste was disgusting. It seemed to be reheated and was the worst that I've ever tasted. Perhaps if someone had never had real Asian, Japanese, or Chinese cuisine, this might be better than say LaChoy from a can,...but it's not something I would recommend to the worst of acquaintances.More

Very happy to see this restaurant is now back open despite all the covid craziness. It all looked quite clean when we went, so that was great to see. Masks must be worn whenever you enter, leave, or anytime you get up from your table...to walk around and/or get your food from the buffet. They also supply plastic disposable gloves which must be worn while getting food from all the many delightful choices. It's a small sacrifice to pay to be able to get very good Chinese food with such a wonderful variety at a decent price ($13.95 for adults plus a 10% discount for Seniors.) We had tried to get sit-down Chinese in the boro nearby, but the only Chinese restaurant there only had take out, and even that was through an unappealing boarded-up window! We had been VERY disappointed with that discovery. Be sure to specify if you're a senior if you wish to get the discount. They had all the same great choices that were available in pre-covid days. The ice cream was extremely hard to scoop, though, because it was so cold. Hopefully next time that will be easier. We didn't feel as if we were risking our health or lives to eat here, and we'll definitely be back!More

For the area, this is the best place to eat Chinese food. However, lunch buffet will not have some dinner buffet foods, and as dinner time nears, dinner foods are brought out with "Dinner Only" signs. If one is tempted to take "Dinner Only" foods,...they will be charged the dinner price, even though the arrival to the restaurant was lunch time. I arrived at the end of lunch, dinner items was brought out and I wanted those items. The lunch bill was left on the table, then taken away at the direction of the cashier who observed me with dinner items, and informed me of the change. I accepted as I was there to enjoy the different foods, and it was not much difference. The restaurant is clean, service is very good, and staff are courteous. This restaurant also offers, fresh made sushi, and Mongolian style cooking from the items that are available.More

I'm on the road and looking for a place for lunch. The exit sign says there's a place called Apple Valley Restaurant, and I figure I'll try it, but then I get off the exit and that's 2 miles away. Right in front of me,...though, is a Chinese Buffet, and two large groups that look like locals entering--a sign that it's probably decent. The food ended up being delicious. The sushi was fresh and well prepared. I was satisfied. It definitely was a lucky find.More

We have been here several times. Whenever we are in the area and feel like Chinese food, this is our stop. Yes the place definitely needs updating, but the food is good. They are constantly refilling the dishes. There is a large assortment of dishes...to try, they also have desserts and help yourself hard ice cream. Price is very reasonable for what you getMore
