Great selection; we always leave too full.

This place is always packed, which is a great sign where buffets are concerned. I find their selection to be extensive, including Korean, Thai and Chinese dishes. There's also a good selection of sushi on the salad side. Favorites include the jalapeno chicken, chicken teriyaki, pan seared green... read more

This is one of the nicest Asian Buffets I have found in quite a while. They offer a generous selection of Chinese, Vietnamese, and Korean dishes. Everything was fresh and delicious. Sushi was especially good for an Asian Buffet. Most every dish in the buffet had English-language labels and was very helpful. Wait Staff was great. I will absolutely be... More

This place has a huge menu with foods from China, Korea, Thai and Japanese. The buffet menu is huge and there are many choices. The restaurant is clean and is very busy. I went for lunch and for $12.99 it was well worth it. Here are some items I tried and enjoyed. Pork bulgogi, kimchee, hot and sour soup, many... More

I was amazed of the vast array of entree selections at this restaurant. There is a sushi bar section and the staff provided to service the entree stations ensured that the pans of food were timely replaced when the pans were close to empty. Wait staff was prompt in clearing empty plates and keeping the water glasses filled. All the... More

The variety and quality of Asian food selections are consistently excellent. My personal favorites are the orange shrimp, several of the sushi rolls and their outstanding crab salad. Yes, the desert choices are plentiful as well. The cost may be a little more expensive than other Asian buffets in town, but it's worth the extra couple of bucks.

I stop in here from time to time when in South Austin. I have found that the quality has been consistent on each visit. There are a large variety of choices from different Asian cuisines. Salads seem to be better than most places. There is also a section of dessert choices.

Excellent buffet of Korean, Japanese and Chinese foods! I would have given 3.5 points if I had the option. I have been here before once and the way I remembered, the sushi was pretty good... Well, the sushi was a big disappointment because most of them were rolls of different kinds and some of them masqueraded as sushi but since... More

This place has a large selection of all your favorite Chinese foods. Not only is the selection nice but the taste is really good for a Chinese buffet place. The variety of sushi is the largest I have seen at any buffet place and also taste really good. I have been here several times and I have never been disappointed.... More
