Zom Hee Chinese Cuisine in Seminole

Zom Hee has been in the same location since 1985 (25 years!) I have literally passed this restaurant over 4,000 times. Today, I stopped. It is now one of my favorite places to go.
The restaurant is actually very big and could easily accommodate large parties.  The inside was nicely decorated and the staff were super friendly.
We were seated and immediately greeted by our server who offered us a menu or the buffet. The buffet is $7.25 and includes over 30 items.  There are 15 different lunch special items that are $7.50 and include egg roll, roast pork fried rice and choice of egg drop, wonton or hot and sour soup. 

Although it is a long list - the $7.50 combo lunch choices are chicken chow mein; sweet and sour chicken; green pepper steak; shrimp with lobster sauce; pork egg foo young; bbq ribs (3); curry chicken; szechuan chicken; Mandarin pork; hunan chicken; moo goo gai pan; kun bo chi; beef broccoli; double luck chow yok; and pork lo mein.

I decided to order the buffet, since I could try several things.  Every day, the menu items change. Today, the selections included chicken chow mein, pepper steak, shrimp foo young, sweet and sour chicken, roast chicken, General Tso's chicken, roast pork fried rice, egg roll and fried chicken.

The servcer brought the soup and as you can see it was not just broth and wontons. There was a lot of flavor!

The food on the buffet was fresh and hot.  Numerous times the chef and waitresses checked the buffet to make sure that it was stocked and clean.

When we were through eating, the waitress brought us our fortune cookies and mine said "You will always be surrounded by true friends." It is true, as today I was with my friend Tara from The Peaceful Warrior Massage.

Zom Hee is located at 9015 Park Boulevard in the Park Place Center. (1 1/2 blocks west of Starkey Road)

They are open Monday through Thursday 11:30am til 10:00pm; Friday and Saturday 11:30am til 11:00pm and Sunday noon til 10:00pm.  The buffet is served daily until 2:30pm and Sundays until 3:00pm. 

As we were leaving, I realized that the restaurant is located by a pond and all of the window seats have a view. The next time that we go for dinner, I will request a window seat!
