Arrived at 3:30pm on Friday August 29th. Buffet food had apparently been there since noon from the texture and temperature. At 4pm I noticed them restocking the buffet & thought 'about time'.I made my second trip to the bar to try for something edible & returned to my seat. I was informed by the waiter that I couldn't have the... More

My wife and I brought our kids here for dinner on a Wednesday night, and it was pretty busy at 6:00 PM. However, we were not impressed - the server was very inattentive, the food on the buffet had been setting around for too long (some was dried out and the rest was drowning in grease), and the men's rest...

It has been a short while since I was there. As usual the food is always good and hot. It is very clean and roomy. It has a very nice atmosphere...I will certainly be back..

My father always speaks highly of this restaurant and he loves a good buffet. I finally came back after many years and it was very good. There was so much food and it was impossible not to go back at least twice. I enjoyed the sushi and the stuffed shrimp. The green beans were awesome! Kids loved the fish and... More

If you go here when it's busy the food is great. Don't go during slow hours because the food sits and dries out. The service is fair, not the best. The environment is very nice and the restaurant is very clean.

Food is your average American Chinese. Fruit was fresh, sushi was good glad to see soy paper instead of nori and food was warm.

WE wanted real food and tried on a whim after a recommendation. This is one of the better buffets we have gone to. WE will be back in the future on our next trip here.

First ate here while hiking the Appalachian Trail. Came back in the spring. This restaurant is famous on the trail; everyone stops in. The selection at the buffet is large, the quality is good. The sushi chefs do provide a large and tasty selection. The service is fine for a buffet, and the price is excellent.

What wasn't grossly overcooked was swimming in grease! The sushi was dried out. The meats on the Hibachi bar looked like they had been there since lunch. Greasy plates on the buffet lines. The dressings on the salad bar had a dried film over them. I remember going there around 18 months ago and it was pretty good. Well all... More

We went here the other night. party of 6. about 7pm. only about 6 tables filled. The sushi was dried out... what there was. It was room temp. The buffet bar was decimated. Nothing was hot. The Teppan Yaki grill was tasteless. The service was slow. But the place was filthy. You stuck to the floors. The carpets had food... More
