I don't know why but I always leave here disappointed. I love Chinese buffet every once in a while but this place never has done it for me. They never really seem to have the flavor of chicken I'm looking for and all of the egg rolls and crab Rangoon always taste bad to me like their fryer oil is... More

Nothing special to say. Has the regular Asian food items. They do have a sushi bar. But charge extra for crab legs. Service is ok but since it is a buffet not a big deal. Food is ok and it looks clean. I do think they may try to rush you a little after you have made several trips to... More

This is not the best buffet in the world but for Smyrna TN...it's the best one in town. The staff is nice but not sure if they all understand English. If you're tired of all the other restaurants in town, try Asuka. It's good for the price.

First time to visit this location and I was just not impressed. The food on the steam tables was not piping hot and by the time I walked back to the table, the soup was barely lukewarm. For the price, we could have dined elsewhere and had a decent and hot meal.

The food was old, cold and nasty. Manager on duty even admitted the food was a lot better during the day but since they were closing in an hour that is what they had. I explained to her that I should receive the same quality food as the other customers received especially since we were paying the same price. I... More

This is your standard Chinese buffet with a hibachi grill and sushi. The food is pretty good, I got a hold to some items that weren't so good because they had been sitting and allowed to get cold. Most of the items were good though after eating here for lunch and dinner they do add roast beef, sliced steak, crayfish,... More

I have had much better and much worse. Best dish in my opinion was the spicy chicken and the broccoli and chicken. Sushi was average, nothing spectacular.

When it first opened it was the best I ever had. Gradually the food went down. One time I went and actually was sick after. Now it seems when you go at opening time the food is better, don't know why.
