Had late Saturday afternoon buffet. Food was old with some dishes left empty. No desserts. Nearly $37 for two buffets. We've had better for 2/3 the price. Will not go again.

Nikko Garden offers a reasonable buffet, a sushi bar and ordering from a menu. The buffet did not identify what the various dishes were so it was a guess at what you were actually getting. One of our party wanted to order from the menu but the hostess didn't seem really interested in taking an order. Frankly there are better... More

We were quickly greeted and staff was excited when we spoke Korean. We ordered things that were not on the menu but specific to our dietary needs and she was happy to make it. We ordered it to go and was seated anyway while we waiting and given some ice water. We got our food and it was pretty good!... More

I had the buffet recently and it was the worst food I've ever eaten from a buffet style restaurant. It was old and dry and very expensive. Also had some sushi and it was very good but expensive as well. Overall the service was horrible. I got a glass of water and it was never refilled. My friend had a... More

They serve a variety of food. The buffet isn't bad if you are in a hurry. The best food is made to order. The Sushi is very good but the pieces are cut VERY large so open wide.

It really depends what time you get here and who has been before you as to the quality and quantity of the food. Do not assume they will bring out more if it is late in the day.

My friend and I got the buffet. It was cold and inedible. I talked to the female owner and showed her how I could put my hand on the hot table without getting burned. We couldn't eat the food, but, she still charged us over the price stated!!!!! When I took pics of me touching buffet "hot table" showing that... More

I first came to this restaurant 4 years ago and loved it then. The chef had recently relocated from Chinatown in NYC. He is on top of his game! He has a lot of rolls that he made up himself. The Playboy Roll is the best... it is served wrapped in foil and on a metal dish that is on... More

The sushi was very good and fresh. Not a very big wine selection. And the price is very high considering the seafood is from here.
