Average experience, very little interaction

The sushi was average, nothing really wow'd me. The staff is not very easy to talk to, never making eye contact any interaction. Will not return!

This is the only local sushi buffet in Virginia Beach, VA that we know of that offers such a wide variety and freshly made throughout the visit. They have a beautiful indoor fish pond near the host/hostess area, the staff is super nice, they also offer mongolian grill and serve some authentic traditional dishes, too. They also serve desserts, seafood... More

This was a great breath of fresh air from the pricey restaurants at the resort area. I usually am not a huge fan of buffets but the quality here was surprisingly good for the price. Alot of fresh seafood and real sushi.

Excellent variety for sushi and seafood. Special note to the fresh oysters, crawfish and baby octopus. The baked flounder was the best. The kalbi short ribs and pho was an excellent surprise. Service was excellent, soiled plates were removed from table quickly. Water glasses filled without asking.

As others noted, this place is well priced and has fantastic sushi (I estimate more than 20 different types). Look for coupons in Virginia Beach tourist magazines for even more discounts. The hot foods are also OK but most items are pretty standard buffet food. Do check out the sauteed and baked fish dishes which we felt were superior to... More

My wife and I love sushi. We went out with our 7 yr old and 3. They really didn't want to help us at all. The sushi is good. Winnie the watress actually looked at the receipt to see how much we tipped her before we left. No class.

This sushi buffet is better than any other I have had lunch or dinner at. Don't expect fine dining here after all it is a buffet. Staff is mostly friendly and the food goes so fast that you get nothing but fresh. They make up a new tray as soon as one empties. For sushi it is also a good... More

The food at this buffet was so delicious and fresh. There was an abundant selection of sushi choices. The bbq was full of choices and tasted very fresh and delicious.

I happen to love Japanese food, but my wife and I hardly ate any of it, because there was so much great seafood to eat! How about steamed blue crabs, steamed middleneck clams, boiled shrimp, raw oysters, steamed mussels, roasted salmon, fried shrimp, fried flounder, steamed whitefish, grilled octopus and crab salad? Then add 40 different kinds of sushi, clams... More
