nice little buffet place that could use some cosmetic work, but had very good food and a huge variety in the choices that they offered including a chocolate fountain! It was clean and the service was very good.

We hadn't been here for a year and had our fingers crossed hoping it hadn't changed. It hasn't. They still have the best sushi bar anywhere around and much more. They have a huge and delicious variety of Asian dishes plus plenty for those who...More

Don’t get me wrong, the food is good. If you’re a seafood person, this should be a 6 out of five. Sushi, crab, squid, and on and on. I don’t happen to be, so it’s just good. I could use another Chinese beef dish choice...More

You won't find a better Asian buffet. Although predominately Chinese, they offer a variety of Korean and Japanese dishes. The sushi bar is a classic as is the dessert bar and everything in between. They serve the Chinese- American food that Americans are used to,...More

My husband and I really enjoyed the buffet. The sushi was fresh and tasty. If you eat here and can't find something on the buffet that you like, then you are just too hard to please.

Dinner for an adult is $14.99. They consider a 13 year old an adult for some reason. After that the price goes down to $11.99 for 12 and under until you get to 9 year olds and they're only $8.99 so it's not a cheap meal... More
