Pros good service. Good sushi rolls. Lots of stuff you normally don't see at a buffet. Warm seafood was way over cooked . Egg rolls were Luke warm. Prepare to spend $20.00 food beverage tax tip for lunch and stick to the hibachi grill that you know the food is warm or for the variety of reasons rolls.

All you can eat crab and lobster!! Not that salty, over-cooked, boiled snow crablegs either. Steamed and delicious. The mongolian grill and fresh sushi were also hits. Many choices on the asian buffet along with crepes made for you for dessert.

Pricing is quite reasonable with 14,99$ for lunch all you can eat. They have a wide selection of Sushi, Dim Sum, Mongolean Barbeque, hot dishes, salads and deserts. Can be quite hectic during lunch hours but still acceptable. Quality of the food is good, restrooms could be upgraded.

My first time there, it isn't as exciting as everyone make it seem. It was like every other typical buffet except they served lobster. The lobster was not even worth it. The only thing I genuinely liked was the lo mien which I can get at any Chinese take out. Would I go there again? No. Could've gotten better food... More

Ginormous selection of food...sushi, seafood, beef, chicken, dim sum, dessert, etc... The place is clean, staff is friendly and the food is very good. Prices are higher than the average Chinese buffet but there are more varieties here. Lunch prices are more reasonable because they do not have lobster or crab. Dinner is pricier but it is still worth it.

Came for lunch. Much better than average Chinese buffet. I enjoyed the hibachi grill. Very good table service for beverage and keeping dirty plates off the table. Would definitely return

The restaurant is clean as it is located in a new building, but the selection is not impressive as it is thought to be. Taste is average with average quality. No impressed overall.

Line up for their lobsters. I always fill up with their grilled mushrooms. Try this in the Mongolian section: broccoli, mushroom, shrimps, garlic, a scoop of mongolian sauce and chili. Power protein!
