“Not worth $17 per person”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

We went only because we got a groupon deal. the food was really average, and some of them were even cold- like the shrimp tempura, and the chicken wings. its just half step up from a hometown buffet. will not go back.

“Ok food and moderate price for all you can eat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

I got a coupon from a value book so we decided to try this place. They have sashimi, sushi and rolls, crab legs and quite a variety of things including Mongolian BBQ for $15 AYCE dinner. Nothing spectacular but it's quite good value for the menu they offer. .

“Quality of food is poor”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2012

The idea is great - a seafood buffet. The lure for me is crab legs, shrip and sushi. In reality, very few crab legs come out ( I have been three times for various reasons). When the crab legs come out they immediately disappear. We took to hovering near that counter and managed to fight for a few thin legs. Plenty of cold very small shrimp with shells on - annoying and messy. Sushi not the best quality, but ample choices. Some Asian dishes have chewy meat and unusual looking fish. If you like a Chinese buffet with a big variety - this is ok.

“Good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2009

Small variety of medium quality sushi & sashimi but good variety of cooked (chinese) food. Quality is above average for buffet but value is very good. I recommend this restaurant for large group or value seeker. Not for sushi connoiseur.
