“Disgusting and Dangerous!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Disgusting! That about sums it up for us. We went and were near the end of filling our bowls when we encountered an employee cleaning up spillage from people preparing bowls. I watched as she pushed food along the counter before scooping it up. I then watched as she looked at what she had before dumping it back in the food for use! Yuck! We immediately left our bowls right there and asked for the manager. The manager did say he would talk to the employee but never asked which food had been contaminated. I am convinced he didn't care and the practice of putting spilled food back in for use is normal procedure. The service, as another reviewer also says, is horrible. We will never be back. Gross!

“Good concept - Poor service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

The concept is good, fresh/raw (including meat) ingredients and seasonings are on a buffet for you to fill your bowl with and give to the grill. They cook what you have selected and bring it to your table. The first visit was good. There was someone dishing out the raw meat, trying to minimize cross contamination. Service was fine. The second visit, there wasn't anyone serving the raw meat. Service was TERRIBLE. The cooked meal arrived, but there wasn't any follow up for drink refills AND the check wasn't delivered. It was quite an ordeal to find someone to pay my bill. NEVER AGAIN.

“A quick bite.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

It's a bit pricey for the amount of food you get, but the flavor is good and the service is friendly. I'd go back, but not often.

“Went there for lunch, and will go back”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

OK, so this place is one of those places where you pick a "protein", "vegetables" and a "starch", and then you pick the sauce that you want it cooked in, take it up to the stir fry grill and let the cooks cook it. This place had plenty to offer in all of the categories. I had the marinated beef and threw some scallops in for the surf and turf effect, loaded up on veggies, threw in an egg, picked a sauce, gave it to the cook, told her that I wanted noodles as my "starch", sat down and it was delivered a few minutes. I will be definitely going back to mix things up a little. The price for a single trip to the raw bar was less than $10, for a couple bucks more it's unlimited trips.
