We love this place! It is not your typical Asian buffet. The sushi is fabulous! There is also a wok for hibachi and other selections as well! It is a little more expensive than College Buffet but the food is so much better. We have never waited there and everyone has been nice.

...do I keep going back? Because it's fast and you never have to wait for your food. The prepared buffet remains the same - standard American-Chinese food: chicken and broccoli, beef and peppers, etc., and a wide assortment of fried appetizers. The sushi is ok. Again, fake crab meat abounds while fresh seafood is sparse. The specialty table has a... More

When you walk in, it's a nice place and the first thing you say is "wow" and then you eat the food. The sushi is the best thing there and there is a wide variety available. There are also 2 different kinds of specialty cooking - Japanese Grill and Chinese Wok. Each and every time I did the make your... More

It's okay. There's lots of food, but it's nothing special. It's fun to go with a group because you don't have to wait to be served.

We had hoped for a good Asian cuisine experience but were greatly disappointed. I don't know how they did it, but they managed to get the food from the hot bar, cold bar and hibachi all tasting the same. There is also the question of cleanliness. When we were seated there were 3 tables near us with dishes and left... More

Both the "College Buffet" and the "Ni Hao" - in close proximity to each other on North Atherton Street - offer excellent value for the money spent. We generally go there for a late lunch - and that pretty much takes care of our dinner. They also offer similar hot food and dessert items, but at "Ni Hao" you get... More

It is the great in state college. You can fuel your month protein in one lunch! It is unbelievable but we go there usually in a group of five or more with an offer of $10 off it is only $10 per person ;-) isn't it great?

If I could give it less than a star, I would. Let me say right now that if you don't want to read all of this, just save yourself the time and go to FUJI JADE, the best Asian restaurant in State College...my fiance and I went here for the first time today (SUNDAY). We were seen by the waitress... More

Went with my family for the lunch buffet at this pan-asian restaurant in State College. Pretty good, nice selection of sushi. Hibashi, grill and all. Very satisfied.

Can't decide between sushi and hibachi look no further. This place is the best make sure you go on an empty stomach to get your seventeen dollars worth. I recommend the pork skews so yummy. They also have some non traditional sushi blends for those feeling adventitious. They also have lobster and beef ribs if you wanna bring a picky... More
