What was it like to have TLC crew filming in your restaurant? And more importantly what did you do with the $90 coin change?

aaahhhh !!!!! Wow

Is there just vegetables dishes?

Yes, there are some dishes that are just vegetables. Though it will be a limited selection.

What universe was I just in? Some one take the red pill and fix the matrix.....

You shouldn’t be talking 😘

how much for adults?

On week days is cheaper... I paid 12 bucks all you can eat... Awesome!

I want to know if it is open to take away or to eat there on the premises

Just to take away

Is capital one credit card accepted ?

If it is a Mastercard or Visa, yes. As for American Express, I don't know.

Not all of the food is fresh. Some of it tastes like it's 1-2 days leftovers.

Went here with 5 people, 3 adults, 1 senior, and 1 child. There was nothing one of the people in my group could eat due to allergies, so she just sat there while the others ate and requested to not be charged for the one person, however we were told that since she sat at the table, we had to pay for her. We also had to pay an adult price for an 8 year old and a senior.This buffet used to be good, but now it is the worst buffet I have ever been to in the entire Bay Area. You're better off driving to Brentwood for Lone Tree Buffet or Hayward for Hinata or Newark for Newark Buffet. I would rather eat at a hometown buffet than here

Some items are good. And some food items are not good at all. The dessert section is not good. Just average. But those prices ...

Food was fresh, 🔥, and tasty. Oysters, dungoness crab, pig feet (WOW), snow crab, fish, shrimp, soup, fresh fruit, veggies, desert, and so many more items to choose from! The price is right here and the waitress, Nina, is a jewel. Friday, Saturday, and Sunday can be the best days with many selection. During the week, this restauraunt offers shrimp, crab, clams, and many of the selections offered over the weekend. This place is worth visiting anytime during the week!

There's enough choices to satisfy a hungry stomach. Children and teenagers may enjoy the variety of dishes and desserts, but may not impress your girl or boy friend.

I was greeted with a friendly smile and taken to my table, the waiter then took my drinks order and I got up to survey the buffet. I have never seen a buffet in the UK with such a selection. I love Seafood and have never seen so large baked oysters as well as mussels natural and baked plus Lobster, King Crab Legs, Prawns and so much more. I dined totally on fish and salad and finished with dessert. All the food was well cooked and full of flavour. Including my drink of Iced Tea the total amount paid was $13, which in my eyes is a bargain.

The customer service for the most part is always bad! But I'm not going to lie the food takes a toll on my soul and I'm just so over the hill in love to where the customer service I can give less than a damn... They don't bother me and I will not bother them 2 hours definitely well spent

This place has improved from the last time I vistited. Which was sometime ago. Had a really good dining experience. Everything I chose was really good.. Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because of the somewhat fishy smell that permeates the restaurant. They do sell a considerable amount of sea food or else I'd be very suspicious.

This is pretty much the go to Chinese buffet for the upper East Bay. The food quality has gone down a bit over the years but it is still good and the cook to order in the back is one of the best items. Been taking the kids here for years. They have a wide range of freshly made items. There are usually a number of seafood choices for dinner. One low point was I asked for an Ice Tea refill and it came out looking like the water. They did make fresh though and hot tea is good and strong.
