Definitely the best selection of sushi of all the asian all-you-can-eat restaurants in Polk County. Usually go there when we want to load up on tuna and salmon rolls. The chinese buffet area is OK and you can be put off by the people who...More

It wasn't cheap but they had a large selection, too bad I don't eat seafood as they had quite a bit which I'm sure raised the price? We went for Dinner and it was quite expensive for a Chinese Buffet! There were servers running around...More
