Very clean and generous. The staff was so kind and it was like eating at my grandmas house. They offered more than not and were happy to serve me. :) I’ll be back ❤️

Let me preface with, we have been here a few times and the food was wonderful and a huge selection (on busy days). With covid going on we understood going in the selection may be limited and we couldn’t serve ourselves. We had the same expectations as always, that the food would make up for that experience. I’m also going to change this review the next time we go hopefully. We walked in at 8:30 and unfortunately trusted google that they closed in an hour and a half. This was my mistake as they closed at 9 but we weren’t informed until after the meal. Had we known we would have walked right back out, we were under the impression this food would still be hot and great. To be frank, it was bland and cold. The egg flower soup (my favorite) was at the end of its life and tasted like a can of cold corn. I’m not even exaggerating, that’s exactly what it tasted like and my boyfriend sipped it just to spit it out. I assume that’s what they made uncle Iroh eat in prison, no wonder he escaped. There was no flavor and I know I like their soup because I’ve had it before! The Chinese donuts were stale from being out for hours and even the orange chicken tasted off. We did not go back for a second plate or even really finish the small plates we got, instead we paid our tab to reschedule our date night for another night so our meal couldn’t dictate the outcome of this one. We obviously know not to come in right before close to a buffet! But we had no clue and learned our lesson to be out 30 dollars, when we were thinking about just ordering Panda Express anyway. The only thing I truly thought was worth an ounce of what we paid for was the coconut chicken. It kept me from leaving even earlier. It was the shortest amount of time I’ve spent in a buffet. The only reason I gave it 3 stars instead of 2 or 1 was because we have enjoyed it before and because the host was incredibly kind. Tl;dr: They close at 9, and do not come in after 7pm if you want fresh food. It was gross.

I love the place. Unfortunately only about 1/3 of the stations were open while still charging the full price.
