Great selection. Fresh and flavorful. Our Family favorite for Chinese Buffet. Price is higher then others but worth it. Clean restaurant and restrooms are decent.

I went in for dinner and paid nearly $20 for the worst food I've even eaten. I'm usually very laid back and don't complain about my food. But this place had the worst beef, chicken, salad, cheese sticks, shrimp. Everything was either way over cooked or under cooked. The salad was all soggy and gross. The only thing this place... More

Love getting the family together and going there to eat. The atmosphere is pretty and relaxing. There is a wide variety of food so everyone can get what they want at a fair price. The food is well prepared and is delious.

The food is terrible. Hot things are tepid at best. Crispy things are limp and rice and noodles are cool to the touch and way passed their best before time. Cold food is not kept cold. The food has no taste. Even the salads are warm. Cold foods are too warm to be consumed with any safety. Even the ice... More

Our oldest son wanted to go there to eat a Chinese buffet. As for grades I give the food quality a 4, the food freshness a 2, and the service a 1. The idea of having pizza and fries was a plus for our younger boys. The sushi was alright, as was the other tradition Chinese food. As for freshness,... More

I was excited to come here as I had heard mix reviews but for the most part good. Well went today for lunch. Not really anything special. Pretty good variety, however it seemed like the food was very much "buffet" food. None of the dishes had any real flavor to them. Then let's talk about the sushi. Ummm.... Maybe let's... More

Great variety of food from Japanese, American and Chinese. I personally enjoyed the Sushi Bar. Usually in a buffet the sushi is typical not great, but this place stood up with their sushi. They're all fresh and taste great. Pricing for the buffet, I find it okay, $15 for dinner. I would come back when I visit San Diego, CA.

Nice place to eat a light food like: salmon, sushi, salad, shrimp... Pay a fixed price and eat what you want. It is mixed japanese and chinese food.

This will be our last time we'll be coming. I have given them many chances and they always seem to be just 'okay' but, Sundays they charge full adult price for the kids. When the food seems normal priced its ignorable but when it is expensive, which it is. I'm done. All the food comes out of the kitchen 5/10.... More
