What's not to love? Better than average food and plenty of it! Service was not to great but no big deal since it's mostly a help yourself affair. We'll be returning for sure!

This seems to be very popular with the locals. I went on a Saturday night, and it was busy-a good sign! They have a varied selection. You can get hibachi, sushi, Chinese, fruit, salad, and dessert. I personally am not much of a buffet person. There are several options as far as types of sushi, but sushi lovers will be... More

I have only been here once so far. No doubt I will be there again. The food was aplenty, the desserts were aplenty, however, the two things (why I gave this a 4 star), the hibachi items were scarce at around 830pm at night, and the service on refills was a bit iffy. Otherwise, it is great having soy sauce... More

I usually don't like Americal Chinese buffet. The food is either too sweet or too salty. But here at Mr Hibachi the food is surprisingly good and they provide different styles (some typical american chinese food and some more traditional chinese food and also sushi and salad). The environment is also a lot cleaner compare to other chinese restaurant.

Buffet style variety of foods. 20 min before closing some items unavailable but surprisingly had a large variety of food available and desserts. Very busy student friendly about 1-1/2 miles from IU. Reasonably priced.

Hubby and I have frequented this restaurant off and on over the past year or so and find the food consistently good with a variety of fresh fruits and salads. Some of the fare is more Asian than at many buffets of this nature, but there is a large selection for those with more Midwest tastes. This time, I was... More

I love Chinese food. Mr Hibachi is ok for your fix. They have a lot of different stuff and a lot of seafood. Dessert bar could be better but that is not a problem for me. It is a little pricey but if you like a all you can eat place it is pretty good for the money.

We stumbled on this restaurant driving from Bloomington to Nashville. We weren't sure what to expect, but thought it must be pretty good because it was packed. We were not disappointed! There's a very good variety of Asian food, including sushi and a hibachi grill. We were there on a Friday night, and it was packed, but we didn't have... More
