This place is great with a large variety of items to choose from and the food just keeps coming. The wait staff is efficient to bring you drinks and making sure your table is cleared of used plates. Just be hungry to eat because the price is a bit steep.

Great place to meet a friend or have a business lunch on weekdays. Avoid on weekends, as the buffet is very expensive.

I am not a big fan of the all-you-can-eat buffet, but the staggering choices (tempura, salads, veggie and meat dishes, steamed dumplings, etc.) and fresh sushi (prepared non-stop by the sushi chefs) was really a quite pleasant surprise. There is certainly enough variety to entice everyone in your family, even with an abundant supply of desserts for any children in... More

Went there on Saturday for lunch -- maybe because it was weekend and near the holiday -- they really picked it up, much more variety and complicated sushi rolls and they were fabulous. The salads are extraordinary and the place is always filled with Japanese -- must mean something. I am certainly no expert at Sushi or Japanese food but... More

First, this is a buffet restaurant. Second, think of eating all you want sushi, dozens of other Asian dishes, like seaweed salad, shrimp and pork Shumai, fried rice, miso soup, peel & eat shrimp, and most anything you can think of. If you don't see a maki roll you want, just ask a chef behind the counter, and he'll make... More

My sister in law took me here while visiting Boston. So many food choices. Hard to believe. Never seen this many items at a buffet. The largest selection of sushi as well. Very good cold salad and hot food choices. I saw a fisherman catch a skate in August while visiting the North Shore Chesapeake area. To my surprise this... More

The different varieties of my favorite sushi and appetizers are absolutely amazing. Sushi is pre-made to serve or order from the chiefs. The flavorful deep fried fish and BBQ fish or sweet & sour. Seafood is incredibly fresh and mouthwatering crab legs and oysters. There are so much to say about this place but it's a five stars plus Japanese... More

I have never had sushi that bad in my life. Buffet style so you pay 32.95 per person for unlimited food if you can find to eat something. It is crowded and most people come for oysters or crabs.

This is a Japanese buffet with the emphasis on seafood. There are some non-seafood meat dishes (and quite good, too) such as beef tataki, beef teriyaki, short ribs. There is a wide variety of sushi, sashimi, and maki available. They are being made constantly. However, if you wish to concentrate on the raw fish, I suggest you arrive early in... More
