We came here close to closing time, and they were nice enough to mention that when we arrived. Basically what they told us was that they will be closing in 30 minutes, and so they won't be adding anymore food to their buffet, but if we are o.k. with there selection they already had, we are more than welcome to...

Thoroughly underwhelmed. I had the buffet and it was poorly stocked and what was there was pretty unimpressive. The waitress checked in with us once to refill our water and drinks. Although, I did not try their sushi. That is what I hear is their strong point.

This is an older review. When they first opened their food was excellent,then it just seemed to go down hill from there. Haven't been back for awhile,but the last couple meals weren't great.

If you go for quantity over quality this is the place. The prices aren't bad, and the food is OK. I'm not a big sushi fan but if you are you might like it better than I did.

Why? Because the owner is allergic to them, too! Love their new sushi chef. He makes the best tempura dip with a smokiness that will tempt you to drink from the dipping bowl! Their cilantro-shrimp rolls are delicate and a killer taste! And they have THE BEST Pad Thai! If you aren't into heavy spices, this is the pad thai... More

we took friends there twice. Once for lunch and once for dinner. The price was rather steep considering that we all had to spend the rest of the day in the bathroom. Never again.

We were there on a quiet night we had a good meal. Staff was nice, service was ok. It seemed like they were busy in another room but, they weren't. It was very quiet.

Well I love sushi and have eaten it all over the US. It amazes me that there are sooo many good reviews of this place. I'd think being in Alaska fresh seafood would be an easy sell, but not here! I arrived 40 mins before close and was greeted by telling me the time and then "but I'll let you... More

I go occasionally on Sundays, and the buffet is very nice, with a pretty wide selection. (Not sure if it differs on weekdays.) The ambience is good. There is a sushi/bar area that I have not checked out. A great place to go for a Chinese/Japanese variety fix.

I like the buffet they have at dinner. Many varieties of dishes, and they seem to keep it fresh and hot by not over cooking too much and letting it sit. They have these little puffs filled with cream cheese I can't get enough of. Plus.... the soups. YUM! A little pricey for Chinese food but I figure it's wortht... More
