I actually really enjoy this place as far as Chinese food. Not only do they have lots of great dishes to try, but they also have American food, like Pizza, Macaroni and Cheese, and french fries,etc. so that if you do go w/ your family and have picky kids, everyone can still get something they will eat. The buffet is the best one around of it's kind for reasons already stated, and it's pretty cheap for what's available. I have never eaten on the other side were they bring you what you order, so I don't have an opinion on that. Lots of seating, no usually overly crowded, just right, enjoyable, food is great, what more can I say. I agree w/ the previous review about the desserts, it's a little disappointing, but you're so full you don't really care.
