Weeknight not as good as weekend

We arrived about 6:30 on a weeknight and were seated beside another booth when most of the restaurant was empty. (Normally they alternate empty tables) After sitting down, the booth back was loose and pushed me when the person on the other side sat down. Once we moved, the new booth was... read more

My wife and I stopped in for Sunday lunch. This place is fantastic! The server was fast, polite and very helpful. The food was hot, fresh and full of favor. They have a wide variety of food with staff taking care of the food making sure that it stays hot and full. Will go back again if we are ever... More

Came to the buffet on the chance it would be as good as the Wonderful Buffet in Arlington. This was much better. The food was fresher, more variety, and tastier. I would have paid for the buffet for just the rolls and sushi alone. It was as good as many places I have gone for just sushi. Iced Crab legs... More

The chicken was like rubber. Crappy food do not go here please. Not worth the money, but dessert is ok. Everything else is disgusting &I'm a cheap date.

My partner and I tried the wonderful buffet after passing by it many times. the restaurant is not big on fussy décor but that's not what we went for. The food was amazing. They had so many dishes that we both loved. the wait staff were very nice and they kept things full and stirred often to keep the food... More

Authentic Chinese food is not what you expect to find in small city and this place (near Costco) proved us wrong. All you can eat Chinese and other cuisines for $15 per adult is awesome value. Love the black bean sauce stir fried clams! Also have king crab legs and lots of other selection. Ambiance is what you expected but... More

This has got to be the best buffet in the entire United States. We go out to eat all the time and I know. They have everything that you could ever imagine...and everything is so fresh and has great taste. They have a guy making fresh sushi and have things like frog legs, baked oysters, crab legs, crayfish, and other... More

We have eaten at The Wonderful Buffet a number of times over a period of years. We were promptly greeted-and-seated today as we were ahead of the dinner peak times. All selections were filled. Large number of selections with tastes in the ranges of very-good to average. Today the used plates were not removed as promptly as expected even though... More

We went there quite often, about once every other month. The food there is good. During dinner time or weekends, they have quite a few seafood items to choose from, and we particularly like the baked oysters, stir-fry clams, and crab lags. Sushi is colorful, but the quality is a bit below average. Other items like fried chicken wings, chicken... More
