Food is always good, service is wonderful.

We've eaten here a lot and always find the food to be very good. The owners are always checking the buffet and will stop to talk with you.

I've read a few negative reviews about the owner's children being there. While this is true, they are well behaved and after all, it is a family restaurant. How many families can or want to run their business and include their children? Not many. This is a nicely run business, very friendly people and one should see the endearing qualities of how this family makes it happen.

We eat here all the time - it is consistently GREAT tasting food! We drive 40 minutes at least once a week -its that good.
Family owned and always friendly - we have gotten there almost at closing time and they will ask us what we would like to eat and they make it fresh!
We send everyone we know up here...
Stop in and try it!

I took my family there and the food was terrible. The buffet was not stocked, hardly at all and the food that was there was only luke warm. It wasn't busy, either. There was only like 3 other people in the store. The food was bad and there wasn't hardly any of it. I won't be going back there.

Went there on a Friday night at 6 and the food wasn't fresh and the fresh veggies on the mongolian bbq were browning and the lettuce on the salad bar was brown as well.

Excellent service!!! I have taken my friends here and recommended this chinese restaurant to others many times. Been here as a group also. They have a lot of seating options from tables to booths, also with tables together for large groups.

We have been here all different times of the day and everything is always stocked and fresh. Tastes delicious too! Anytime you want fresh or there needs something restocked just let them know and they will bring it out to you.

A great "family oriented" restaurant. An older building that could use some updates but well taken care of and it shows by the friendliness of the staff.

One thing I must say is for as often as we go I would like to see a coupon offered or a VIP program, something more for their customers, I believe it would bring more customers.

My family and I have been looking for a good Chinese Buffet that has both good food and good pricing. We found that at the Canton Inn in Nixa. We love it! The staff and owners make you feel at home, the food choices are many,and they keep it cleaned up as people go through the line. We have only had good experiences here. Now as for the other reviews, maybe they caught them on a bad day. Everyone has one of those now and them. We also love it that they are so family oriented. We enjoy seeing the baby when we go in and the rest of their family. If you want really good Chinese in a clean place, for a good price, go check out Canton Inn!!

I was not impressed when my family and I went to eat here over the weekend. We have been here one other time and it was also an awful experience. The waitresses are great its the owners that are not. If your wanting to go eat in peace in quiet this is not the place to go. Both times I ate their, all's I could hear was their new baby crying and watch their out of control daughter run all over the place. She is a child and should not have to spend her whole childhood in a restaurant because her parents are working all the time. And she runs around with out shoes on a lot of the time which is very unsanitary! I will not be taking my family back to eat there!

If i could give it zero stars i would. the place is infested with ants and the owners daughter is allowed to run around the place barefoot, not to mention she is like, two. terrible quality of the food. some choices are okay, but eating here past seven is a bad idea as they don't like to refill the buffet. visited once, and my last time will be that once. very, very disappointed.
