If you like chinese food, this is a pretty good place to eat. Good shrimps variety, typical chicken, fruit, ice cream. If you wish to have a fast dinner, this is the place.

Half of the family ordered the buffet, the rest ordered from the menu. The menu items were delicious, fresh, hot and tasty. The buffet had good choices but seemed to be a bit dry and not as appetizing as ours. Affordable to us.

Super cheap meal - for about $15 you can eat as much as you like from the buffet with free soda's. Not much atmosphere but quick and relatively good food.
