It was a big selection

They had a big selection, the food was ok. Not the best in chinese, but the sushi is great! The place is big and pretty though, but it can be very loud at times.

If you want lots of chicken and shrimp, then this is the place. I don't do raw fish so I can't speak for that side of the buffet. Have tried most everything else. Love the frog legs and some of the veggies, but the meal is overpriced due to having crab legs on buffet. Good salad bar and usually lots... More

Many, many many items to chose from. Had several dishes with shrimp which is not very common elsewhere. Even the sushi selection was greater than I usually see. The hibachi however was limited with the vegetables but the meat selection was good. Ice cream was in little containers and not a real good flavor selection either. I did not come... More

The Amber has a very large Chinese/Japanese/Hibachi/Sushi buffets I have ever eaten in, and I have been to a bunch of them. From the standard fare of sweet and sour chicken and egg rolls to steamed clams and crawfish, it is hard not to find a favorite. I am a big fan of the Hibachi chicken the fresh made sushi... More

Love the selection offered. Great Sushi bar included. Staff keeps your drink glass filled and is good at removing dirty dishes to make room for your next trip up to the buffet. A few American choices for picky children.

I am not much for Chinese food, I much prefer Japanese and when friends decided to got to Amber for lunch I almost backed out. Glad I didn't, what's not to like at Amber😄 They have a full Hibatchi with every veggie and chicken and shrimp, assorted sushi and anything you can imagine on the Buffett which includes several soups,...

Went here for a family celebration. The atmosphere was nice, kids liked the fish. But the food....it looked good, but nobody was impressed with the quality. Won't be back.

I don't typically eat at buffets. I had heard about the food at Amber in passing conversations, but didn't actually know I was going to a buffet until I walked through the door. The restaurant was well kept and clean, and we were hungry, so we stayed. I was definitely pleasantly surprised. The waitstaff was more attentive than the usual... More

This had to be the nicest looking and cleanest buffet I've ever been in. Food was fresh and delicious. Sushi was good. Had a hibachi bar as well where they make you fresh food off the grill. Very nice place...also very crowded which is a good sign.

The variety is great....one of the larges Chinese buffets I have seen in this area. A little of everything...even large choice of desserts, as if anyone had room! It is a little pricey (although it actually qualifies for the Cheap Eats category for the cafeteria style service), but considering the quantity of food offered (and I am sure many customers...
