Fortune Star Buffet in Rockville, MD -- What Happened?

We'd been going for years to this, our favorite, Chinese buffet. The Chinese food was delicious and authentic, the sushi good, and the selection wonderfully varied, with many different cuisines represented.

But my birthday dinner at the end of May this year was a disaster. Something was seriously wrong. The six soups on the buffet were at a rolling boil, boiled down to the bottom, and congealed. The Chinese dishes were poorly seasoned and flavorless. Meats that should have been tender and falling off the bone were undercooked and tough. Foods that should gave been hot were cold. I should have known when we first pulled into the parking lot: the lot was almost empty. The place was deserted by the many Chinese regulars who frequent this place.

I asked the waitress, "When did you have a change of chef?" She said it was last week! No wonder everything was wrong.

Does anyone know what happened? Has anyone eaten there recently so that they could report on the current situation with the food? I'm hesitant to return and be disappointed. Thanks.
