My wife and I live in Myrtle Beach and we are making it a point to eat everywhere at least once. We usually go to Osaka Buffet for a decent priced sushi/buffet but chose somewhere else today. Mistake. Our first impression was standing waiting to be noticed. They were selling a beat up old booth for $40 and had a... More

I love great Chinese Food, but this food was like bad leftover Chinese food. The buffet food definitely was not freshly made. Outdated decor and overall not clean. I am also a firm believer that you can tell a lot from a restaurant's bathroom and this bathroom is filthy! This food was cheap, but you get what you pay for.... More

Kind of dark and outdated inside. Selection was buffet style, and nothing special. It was an average experience worth trying once, but not again. Went to OSAKA Buffet which was a much better dining experience for Chinese/Sushi food.

We visited on a Saturday night. The food was average at best. Very bland . The wait staff was very friendly and attentive.Most of the items on the bars were not the freshest but never really old. It seemed like the food was warmed up from lunch buffet
