A large assortment on the buffet, but the food is average. My grandma loves it so we meet there yearly. It is always busy.

nice selection and choices, but the service was lacking and the price was on the higher side it was close to the restaurant that I was remodeling and I couldn't find another one anywhere near so this is where we went.

Been to the great moon numerous times, a great variety of different food, something for everyone, I love the chicken wings, here's my issue although the food is pretty good for a buffet what bothers me are all the hands touching the utensils and intimately the food, the other issue is the help that should be trained to properly clean...

I feel like this buffet has gone down Becuz the service is bad when u come in and the line is always long. I think this is the closet asian buffet around so everyone just come but honestly, the service is degrading. The food is alright. Nothing special much anymore.

The food is always good at the Great Moon and there is usually a wide variety dishes to sample. If something you like is not at the buffet, just ask and they will likely prepare some. The sushi bar is not always the freshest, but still mostly edible. If you are really hungry its a good place to stop.

This buffet is over priced, but does have large selection. You can go to a nice sit down restaurant for the same price, but if you like to eat until your hearts content-then you'll love it! The food is ok- but be careful if you cannot have MSG!

Quite decent sushi. Buffet is kept stocked and fresh. Very attentive table service to keep drinks stocked, and clearing plates. Not great food but hot and decent for the price. Especially at lunch. Also didn't get sick so I think they are not users of MSG.

The selection is amazing; the food always fresh. We ate there on Christmas Eve on the way to visit relatives. Despite being very busy, they kept up on refilling the buffet, so we never had to wait for our favorites. The sushi was great! Their mussels are always good. At some Chinese buffets, each dish tastes the same no matter... More

While there with my daughter she found bugs in the food. When she brought it to the attention of the staff there we were told if we did not like it there not to return. That is exactly what we will do. Never go there ever again!!!
