But they kinda make you wait even if there are plenty of tables around. This place has been around for a while and it's kind if going down hill. Don't expect Bellagio or the Wynn here. The foods been sitting for a while if you're not there at the right time. I'm not talking about early or late. I'm talking... More

Learned of this place from coworkers during our recent visit. Had been to other eateries in the area but was not aware of this place as it is somewhat tucked away behind the ice rink. Unfortunately I learned they have closed, or are moving according to another review, which I am not sure of though. The food was better than... More

The Hokkaido restaurant is a warm, clean, beautiful venue. Wide aisles and nice furniture--cozy booths. This buffet restaurant is one of the best buffets I've visited ever. Good value for the vast selection of yummy dishes! Noodle station, ribs, seafood, dim sim, ... The only caveat is there is no self-serve station for beverages. I hate having to hunt down... More

Beware, the members of management team of this restaurant are very rude. A certain manager by the name of Ling refused to listen to a customer's complaint while his family were eating lunch at the restaurant on 2/2/13. She blatantly lied to a customer when asked for the manager. She maliciously denied that she is one of the management staff... More

My family and I just celebrated a family member's big milestone birthday at this buffet place. We had about 55 guests. The staff allowed us to bring our own decorations (balloons, streamers, etc). This place is one of the nicest buffet place I've ever been at. The moment you walk in the double doors, they have a nice, welcoming reception... More

Good sushi and a variety of asian specialty foods (even chickens feet). It was a little busy and crowded the night we were there, but service was good and they were constantly replenishing the buffet with fresh items.

I've been to buffets from Florida to California, and this ranks as one of the best if not THE best. At first glance, it looks like an upscale Asian / Seafood restaurant, not a buffet or cafeteria. Nice booths, tables, decorations, and staff. Instead of the typical buffet line, the food is spread out in sections such as Sushi, Hot... More

This is not just the seafood buffet. They have Dim Sum, variety of Sushi, steamed buns, soups, cakes, dessert, variety of seafoods including salmon, hot dishes, fried rice, garlic bread, veggie spring rolls, and even kimchi etc. For less than $12 for weekday buffet lunch, with these many choices the price is very reasonable.

This is now a Japanese restaurant and the food is amazing. There were more courses than you could try and the food was well presented and delicious. The decor is a bit dated, it reminds me of an old cinema, but the food makes up for it. The service ie,providing drinks and taking away empty plates was prompt and courteous.For... More
