The Korean menu was delicious. We ate the fried kimchi pancakes and the seafood pancakes. They were outstanding. I had a rib meat dish that was served in a searing hot cast iron bowl. That was great, but the rice started to burn at the bottom, so I guess that you must stir it frequently. They served us 5 Korean... More

I visited on a weekend and opted for the all you can eat special. The wait staff was very attentive and friendly and everything was delicious. Couldn't finish everything so I may skip all you can eat next time and stay on the menu. The only thing I would change is their attention to celebration details. The presentation of the... More

... sushi experience, thought they have a lot more to offer than just fish! First, all you can eat.. Service was a little slow, but servers were pleasant. Sushi was fresh, rice was tasty but very dense (heavy) This is a way AYCE (All You Can Eat) places fill their patrons with rice instead of fish, ha ha! But it... More

We got to the buffet a bit late in the day and only had 30 minutes to partake. Food was still hot and plentiful, tasty and varied. It's a good buffet, in which a small variety of sushi is available, along with various vegetable and meat dishes.

Ordered two all you can eat sushi and my daughter got a teriyaki meal. My son only wanted rice. The older lady brought out some sushi then I put it in the... More

My wife and I had the lunch buffet. The food was fresh, hot and cold appropriate, and the condiments are a plentiful high quality addition to the buffet experience. We will go here again. The service was excellent. This is a good buffet at a reasonable price.

I have been here a couple of times, but it's been a while. Ironically, I came here less than a week after I was in S. Korea (Daegu). I found the Korean BBQ to be quite good. The bulgogi was really good, the pork belly was pretty good (not as good as real Korean). My son only eats shashimi and... More

Our favorite Asian restaurant. Love the staff here. The service always shines and we feel like VIPs. The Korean BBQ is awesome try their bokeum pork. Spicy but oh so good. There are always a lot of Asian patrons there, need I say more? Don't miss the happy hour for hot saki and Sapporo beer, You will be back!
