Good food but they only accept cash at lunchtime. Typical Asian restaurant trying to avoid paying tax in our country.

Pretty sure the smoke alarms have been disabled as the whole restaurant was full of smoke from the BBQ's. For $29.90 the buffet... More

We decided to order the bento box - where you can select your own meats and then cook yourself at the table - yum!
