“Endless sushi etc”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

We love this place! My 9 year old granddaughter requested to go here for her birthday dinner. We always enjoy the upscale buffet with lots of delicious choices. I like the sushi and made-to-order grill; choose your veggies and meat and they grill it. The only downside - I always eat too much.

“Mom's day out was Great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

This place has it all. The choice of Sushi was amazing and it was all made fresh right in front of you. They also have enough American and Chinese fair to satisfy the picky eaters. They also added a chocolate fountain. The décor is more casual for the price you pay. The price is comparable for the amount of choices you have.

“Great place to go to satisfy that Chinese / Sushi cravings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

While the limited choices for traditional-fair Chinese food is a little lacking, the choices for sushi more than make up for the fore mentioned shortfall, but those limited choices do satisfy the picky eater that will not belly up to the sushi bar. The place is very clean, but a little spartan on the decor. The hours are strange, with a two hour period where they are closed between lunch and dinner.

Finally, pick your time of visit well, and you can save a lot. Recent weekday buffet prices are $10 / $17 for lunch / dinner

“Wow what a surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

Loved this place. Lots of choices from sushi to a hot buffet to a salad bar to hot cooked food to order with a fancy chef and a dessert bar. Service is good and it is large enough to have a private party where everyone can get the food they want when they want it. Lots of walking around to get your food choices and things are filled quickly. Very friendly staff. One price for everything. Will be back soon.

“Unexpected goodness”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013

I did not have much hope for this restaurant. My fears were soon laid to rest. This place is very clean, airy and a delight. Even the bathrooms were clean.
I was surprised to find sashimi. They had a huge selection of rolls and some sushi. A nice little salad bar and dessert bar can be found at the far end. In the middle is a build your own hibachi bar. A nice older man was manning the grill during my visit and did his best to entertain me while my stuff cooked.
At the other end is a good selection of teriyaki items and noodles, I only tried the udon. But every thing seemed fresh and clean. I will be coming back for a fact. My wife and I only cost us 25 bucks. That is a heck of a deal even if you only eat a little.
