I was invited back to this restaurant and our meal experience was a bit better than the first go around. We had reservations and we were glad we did because they were packed - as in people were waiting outside for seats on a Friday evening. Since we had reservations, we were promptly seated (only about a 5 minute wait). When this restaurant is full, it is super noisy and you must wait in a cue line for the buffet just FYI.
Out of the 4 people at our table, only one got the meat option. Luckily, our waiter did not go into a long talk about all the "extras" you can order along with your meal and simply brought us waters and we were "released" to the buffet. I was quite surprised that the lunch buffet and the dinner buffet are identical. The one major difference I noticed however was there is no longer peel and eat shrimp on the buffet and instead it has been replaced with sushi rolls. These were delicious and my fiance and I ate these along with salad. None of us bothered with any of the "cream salads" - they are grocery deli style and just did not look very appetizing.
My father in law was very pleased with the meat selections and the servers were extremely quick. I was quite satisfied with my spinach salad and sushi, but I must admit I would have been underwhelmed if all I had to eat was a salad like I can make myself at home. The surprising treat of the evening was the fried bananas. We all ate a ton of them and they were amazing. Honestly, I would go back just to eat these fried bananas that was how good they were.
