This particular crystal jade outlet is famous for its xiao long bao buffet whereby customers can order as much as possible and also get to enjoy hot pot and other food items too. Given that xiao long bao doesn't come cheap in many places, you will probably need to reserve a booking at least 2 weeks in advance. Forget about walking in because that is unlikely to happen given that they are almost fully booked most of the time. However, while the price is really cheap for a buffet and the food they serve, do be prepared for in my opinion pretty average tasting food. If you are going to dine here, do come with a group of people with huge appetites and not with a group of gourmet eaters

Abysmal food quantity fit for kids

I used to be able to recommend this place to anyone but after today's lunch my impression of the place totally changed. All the prices have been jacked up which I am not complaining due to. Inflation but the quantity of food has gone down significantly. My dad ordered the la mian with herbal chicken and we were expecting at least a drum stick for 13 dollars but alas we were served 3 small strips of chicken. Even a child wouldn't be satisfied with the portion. Some of dishes which mention in the menu that it has mushroom also has no visible signs of it in the dish. *the server mentioned that it was already mashed up with the dish but honestly there is no taste of it whatsoever. I won't recommend this place nor visit this place ever again and I'm really disappointed with the standards here

Once and its enough

Total Reviews: 147

Once and its enough. It was a friend’s gathering and we all gathered to enjoy the xiao long bao buffet. All you can eat juicy xiao long bao. We were a group of 10 and on average, each ate 4 trays of xiao long bao. It was tasty, juicy and fresh. Serving was fast and staff was generally friendly. However, we ate so much of the xiao long bao till I still shiver a little every time someone say “xiao long bao”. Still, it should not deter you from trying their food. It would be best if there is a bigger group of people to go along so that you have a wider variety of food to choose from.

Xiao Long Bao Buffet

Honestly, this is the first place that make me fell in love with Xiao Long Bao and Chinese style La Mian! My favorite La Mian is Zha Jiang La Mian and Dan Dan La Mian, both taste really good, definitely better than other restaurant that sell the same. Anyway, this outlet also offered steamboat and Xiao Long Bao buffet during lunch and dinner. I would recommend you guys to call in to make your reservation if you are going for the buffet. However, it take a lot of patience to call them. They take forever to pick up the phone, or maybe never picking up. So it is like try your luck!
