This is actually a response to therd3. He is not being truthful at all. My family has been eating there for about 12-13 years, just had their buffet today and the "large tortilla wrapped cream cheese things that were 3 in.x 3in" are called won tons, they are delicious, have more than just a pea size piece of cream cheese and are not 3"x3", maybe before they were cooked and spread out flat they would be. He says, "We took off the large flowery part and ate the middle with the cheese." first off, if anyone would have a hard time eating them I would, and I have no problem eating the whole thing. second, if there is only a pea size piece of cream cheese, then they didn't eat any of it if they took off the "flowery part". He also says,"Then we tried everything some of the stuff was too hot (spicy) so we did not eat that." The menu is clearly marked what is spicy, and on the buffet, any of the normally spicy things, are in their mild form. Even the kung pao chicken isn't spicy or have peanuts for those allergic to them. " I went back and got some more chow mein but this was different from the first batch. It was all fried noodles ." of course it is different as people eat the food they replace it, with get this, different chow mien as he calls it or lo mien as everyone else calls it and is how it is marked on the buffet. Then he goes on about how the owner keeps saying "He looked at our plates with the remaining unwanted food and asked if we were going to waste this food" and "He then told us next time he was going to charge us more and then just kept going on and on about the food on the plates." In all the years we have been going here, first I have never seen the owner bussing tables. Second, on more than one occasion my eyes were bigger than my stomach and left quite a bit of food on my plate, and have never had anything of the sort happen to me or have seen it with any other patrons.
And finally...
"How embarrassing! There was not that much food wasted. He did not need to tell me not to come back! I will never set foot in that door again! And I suggest that if you do not want to pay to get yelled at, stay away also!(or clean your plate) Who knows he may yell at you for taking too much."

The only thing embarrassing would be this guys behavior that would illicit the owner to say not to come back, because in all the years we have went there, and we are not regulars, we go maybe 6-8 times a year, we have never been treated that badly or seen anybody being treated that badly. In fact they have ALWAYS not just been nice to us, but bent over backwards to make sure everything was fine. This guy is just filled with anger, and obviously blows the smallest thing WAY out of proportion. I am one who would be glad to not only keep going here for the excellent food and service, but also to do it without fear of seeing this guy there.

Have to say by far the best in town!!! Eat in or take out the potions are huge and the service is amazing!!! Great service, great food and they deliver! As far as the bad review posted; obviously the guy has no idea between chow mein or loemein. As far as being asked to not return either a. He was either lying or b. He was a huge ass! Been there several times and have seem them be nothing but nice. It's a must try!

Sum Yan Can"t - Yoo Shuudnt

I invited my son out to lunch with me and my wife. We had the buffet.
They had large tortilla wrapped cream cheese things that were 3 in.x 3in. with about a pea sized piece of cream cheese and fried. These things were really greasy. We took off the large flowery part and ate the middle with the cheese.
Then we tried everything some of the stuff was too hot (spicy) so we did not eat that. I went back and got some more chow mein but this was different from the first batch. It was all fried noodles . I ate a small amount of that and did not care for it, and leaving the rest.
Then the male owner (Sam) came over and asked if we were done. We said we were. He looked at our plates with the remaining unwanted food and asked if we were going to waste this food. I could not believe it. He then told us next time he was going to charge us more and then just kept going on and on about the food on the plates.
I never said a word to the guy! He finely told us never to come back. This was at 12:30 lunch rush. How embarrassing!
There was not that much food wasted.
He did not need to tell me not to come back! I will never set foot in that door again!
And I suggest that if you do not want to pay to get yelled at, stay away also!(or clean your plate)
Who knows he may yell at you for taking too much.
