The sushi is ok, some of is better than grocery store sushi. But ice cream kinda tasted like... read more

I'm not a huge fan of Chinese food, however this is a really good place to eat at an awesome price. My husband is Asian and was beyond excited that they have pho, he said if we come back for vacation again this will be one of our first stops.

there are many choice from Japanese to VietNam, Pho also has good flavor, better than the pho 79 across the street. The meat in Pho is a little chewy, but the broth has more flavor than other place. it also has Korean bbq which I found more sweetie than traditional one in Northern VA. the Mongolian section is also good,...

Good variety of sushi, hibachi, Japanese food, and desserts. Affordable prices $10.95 for lunch and $14.95 for dinner. The staff is friendly, I always come with my family almost every week and the food is always good!

Broad selection of sushi, fish, chicken, salads, etc., for children, too. Located behind Captain George's Seafood and next to Dollar Store. No Alaskan Crab legs, but one-third the cost of Captain George's (CG's), but the children will love pizza and soft-serve ice cream (not found at CG's). High quality food: exceptional value for price. Go early or be prepared to... More

The food was amazing. Very fresh and a variety of things to eat at an excellent price. However, the wait staff seemed to have a bit of an attitude which ruined the meal a bit.

Nothing to write home about, and not the largest selection of offerings. Not too expensive, a practical place.

Omg what a hidden gem this place is. I was worried that a $14 sushi buffet would be dreadful but I could not be more wrong. Plentiful fresh QUALITY sushi, sashimi and rolls. Chinese style food for the kids. Constantly replenished. Delightful and friendly waitress. We had a coupon and the kids are for about $5 each. We got our... More

The variety and value for sushi beats anything else out there. They are always replenishing the buffet. You will like the sushi and the Chinese food buffet items, don't waste your time with the crawfish if you've ever eaten the real deal Cajun style. Great value.
