Went to lunch here with some coworkers and it's pretty much has gone downhill from when they switched owners. The buffet looked unappetizing and some of the entrees were not marked so no one knew what the dish was. I ordered the dim sum which is new - the waitress forgot a couple of my items. The ones I did... More

A bright clean place with a large buffet. The staff was friendly. A mixture of Asian foods on the buffet. Hibachi, and sushi included. The food seemed to be about average for a Chinese/Asian buffet. $8.95 per person for the lunch buffet.

We were in the area on southside blvd and saw several signs for weekend buffet special $9.99. we should have known better. The food was bad too poor for the most part. A few nice surprises like the curry dishes.

It was a pleasant experience working with the manager on Saturday evening and Sunday lunch. It was a madhouse and he stopped and gave us his full attention as my sister in law inquired about decorating ahead for her daughters wedding reception. I wish I could remember the mgrs name as I would love for him to get a "Atta... More

I recently ate at Wasabi Japanese Restaurant in Jacksonville Town Center. We had a small party, four tables in all. The staff went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and they were right there if there was anything we needed. The food is very good and the portions are quite large. The chefs do a great... More

This was a new experience for us, had never had our food cooked in front of us like this before. The food was delicious and plentiful (too much really), varied and the 'chef' was very entertaining, we just loved the whole experience and wish there was something like that near us in the UK. Thank you

We eat the Saturday buffet (all you can eat) whenever we are near that part of town. The selection is broad and properly prepared and the price is fair. Sushi, sushimi, hot bar, delicious desserts. I won't trust just anyone to make my sushi, but this place I trust and always enjoy. I follow the Department of Health inspections and... More
