Fresh Sushi, Horrible Service

I let my daughter talk me into going to this buffet, mainly because they have freshly made sushi. We arrived, and were seated quickly, and the hostess took our drink order. We went and chose our food, and upon returning to our seats, we still didn't have our drinks. After waiting several... read more

We went here for the crab legs. We were told they would be on the bar at 3:30, and we arrived at 3:20. At 3:45 we were told they would be out in 10 minutes. By the time the crab legs were placed on the bar we no longer wanted them. After seeing the small size of them, we were... More

Food was ok but the added prices were so unexpected. When you expect to pay $11.99 for you mean for a buffet that says it has over 200 items the go up to get whatever you want and see a sign saying crab legs and extra $4.99 per person and another sign say $ 8.99 for something else this is... More

Went with my husband 02/2015. 1st and last time going there. The sushi we ordered was ok. It was pretty hard to communicate with the wait staff :/. The bad part though was the hot food.y husband's teriyaki chicken was the worst I've ever tried. The chicken was weird, soft like mushrooms. There was definitely something weird about it. The...

As the title its the best chinese buffet we have found in Orlando, there is a massive selection with a sushi bar and chefs on hand, its not the freshest of decor but the food, service and price makes up for this.

The food was very good with a wide selection. Premises clean, atmosphere ok, but agree with previous reviewer who had the bill presented in the middle of the meal without asking. This also happened to us, there were plenty if free tables and we had only been in 30 minutes when the bill was presented to us with the waitress... More

Great selection of food in buffet, which was very clean and nicely presented, the only thing that let this restaurant down was the attitude of the two staff members we came not contact with. The first who seated us, no greeting, no eye contact ....... Second was our server who promptly presented us with our bill the minute we had... More

We visited this restaurant as we fancied a change and liked it very much. There was a good selection of good, fresh food. The restaurant was very busy and seemed very popular. Would definitely recommend and go back.

The new look is impressive and cool. Unfortunately, not enough attention is paid to the food. The menu is the same, which is fine. The problem isn't inadequate choice. It that the choices just don't seem to be executed very well. We have tried the restaurant half a dozen times over the past few years, hoping to find something great.... More
