DO NOT EAT HERE!!! – I have lived all over the country and have been to countless Chinese buffets. This place is horrible, by far the worst food I've ever had, and I've done missionary work in Third World Countries. The food was cold, congealed, and undercooked. The service was awful and the atmosphere was nonexistant. I would think for a place charging so much for a crappy buffet they could afford real tables and not foldable plastic tables you would use for a yard sale. WORST FOOD EVER!!!
$17.95 a person for poor service, cold rice, and bland "cuisine" – When we arrived, the "host" asked us how many and then pointed to a plastic folding table covered by a table cloth and said "you sit there". No taking us to our table or any type of friendly service.
We then went up to the "buffet" and saw what they had to offer. And let me tell you there wasn't much. I have lived around the world and have been to countless Chinese buffets, but never have I seen anything so awful as this one. A lot of the dishes were just congealed lumps of something that even after reading the placard with the name of the dish was still hard to tell what it was.
After that initial disappointment, both my wife and I started to fill our plates.....Maybe it wasn't as bad as it looked we said to eachother.....WRONG. We sat down and started to eat what was to be the worst meal I can honestly say I have ever had. I finished as much as I could on my plate and went back to the "buffet" to try and find just one redeeming dish. Unfortunately there wasn't one. Everything I sampled from the Orange Chicken to the Broccoli and Chicken, to Egg Drop Soup and Fried Rice was cold, bland, and seemed to be undercooked.
Then came time for the bill. $37.59 for two adults. I was outraged. Never had I paid that much for such awful food or service anywhere in the world. I asked to see the manager and we had a lengthy discussion about my complaint where I was basically told "Customer satisfaction doesn't matter to us, we don't care if we have your business again, now pay and get out."
We paid and left and will NEVER return.
I have never written a review before but was so upset with this place that I want others who are interested in trying this place out to know what they are getting into before they go. Do yourself a favor - don't make the mistake we did and ignore the reviews. Save yourself the trip, your taste buds, and a lot of money - go somewhere else. If I could give negative stars to this establishment I would.
