“A lovely lunch experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2011

The food was great. The best variety of sushi I've seen at a buffet. The atmosphere was nice and the staff were friendly and fun.

“Absolutly Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2010

The food was very good. We enjoyed the Habachi, and also ordered sushi on the side. Our Habachi chef was very entertaining, and the sushi was perfect. The prices were actually lower than I expected, considering we had soup, salad, sushi, and our meal which came with fried rice, noodles, and vegtables. The service was impecable. Our waitress was very attentive and friendly. I would highly recommend this to anyone in the general Tampa Bay area.

“First time, but will not go back again.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2010

I normally will try something three times to give it a chance. I would not waste my money on this place again. The sushi was of very good variety, but because of waste, was cut THIN. The food was not hot in temperature, but moderately warm. The choices were not vast like other buffets. The white rice from the rice cooker was old, dry pieces to it! The house rice was like Vigo rice made their way. The dessert choices or lack of was just ice cream. What happened to macaroons, almond cookies, and fruit? They are so cheap they don't even have the typical fortune cookies. The large jar of starlight mints by the counter had a sign on it that said please take only one. What kind of place has to put up that kind of sign.

In summary, VERY disappointed.

“Rude Manager/Owner”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2010

I was there for my lunch break with girlfriends from work. The meal was fine and we enjoyed ourselves. However upon going to the register the manager (or think its actually the owner, male with glasses, mid 50's) was on the phone doing his beverage ordering. As we all know that lunch breaks usually consist of an hour and the traffic on S Fla can be quite heavy during the lunch rush so we usually try to go somewhere close by to avoid being late. So anyway, he's on the phone ordering I interupt him and ask if we can please pay because we are in a hurry and if looks could kill we all would have been dead. he actually got loud with me and started yelling that he is doing the best he can. Damn man take a chill pil. Rudeness with a capital R.

“Don't waste your time”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2010

The lunch buffet is terrible. There is hardly no variety. There dinner buffet is the same with a few added foods like steak which you wait forever for them to put out. Not worth your time or money.
