Amazing for a Buffet

Very rarely would I give a Chinese Buffet 4 stars. This place far exceeded my expectations. The staff was very welcoming which is also very rare for a Chinese Buffet. The size of the buffet was huge. It was like they had a whole sushi restaurant, a Chinese restaurant, and then a hibachi restaurant... read more

Management walking around, can't even greet any of the customers. Soups are cold, food seems old and looks like left overs.

I went here with my two teens last weekend. We were visiting the beach and always go to a seafood buffet, but after calling another restaurant in the oceanfront area and obtaining the price, I'm glad we chose this place instead. It was only several miles from our oceanfront hotel, and offered a huge selection of food. I thought the... More

This was my second time here. It is only about $ 15.00 for the all you can eat buffet. Their coconut shrimp, lo mein, and thin steak were excellent. There is also soft serve ice cream flavors with toppings. We would definitely return again. The negative was this particular waitress, and the hostess. I asked the waitress for a fork,... More

The selection of sushi was amazing. Hibachi grill and the teriyaki salmon were real good. Coconut shrimp, crab cake were mouth watering. This was worth a trip to Virginia beach from Suffolk.

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.
