“For a buffet, you can't beat it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

They have a great sushi bar included in the buffet, the sushi is good too. Then mix in the crab legs and you can't go wrong. The food is better than any other buffet food, but we don't get much more than sushi and crab. they had a lobster night one time we were there, the lobster wasn't that great, but i had a claw bigger than my plate! It was crazy big and not good. for sushi, kimchi, bulgogi, crab leg, seaweed salad, all is well. can't beat the price.

“surprisingly very good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

Lots of Sushi to choose from for a very reasonable price. We went at lunch time and I could not believe the selection! They had everything! Beautiful fruit bar, sushi bar, hot bar, salad bar, desert bar, and much much more. They had steamed blue crab, craw fish, crab legs, etc. They even had seaweed salad that was delicious. I could not believe the selection of food. The service was very good, constantly picking up dishes and refilling beverages. Best buffet I've been to. I was skeptical of trying somewhere new for us, but we both were so glad we did. We will definitely be back.

“Know what you're paying for.....”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

My daughter & I went to Fuji today (Monday) because their lunch buffet is $12.99. After we were done we were handed our bill. Imagine our surprise when we saw our lunches were $15.99? When we asked our server why she said because its a holiday. It's Presidents' Day for heavens sake. We were charged $3 more because they offered crawfish on the buffet (we dont like crawfish). Our server was wonderful, kept our dirty disses cleared & our drinks filled. But beware of their sudden price jump. The other thing is nowhere on their web site does it say that the lunch prices go up. It will be a long time before we return to this establishment.

“As Asian Buffets Go This Is A Good One”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

We've dined here many times and have always had a pleasant experience. Our most recent meal came at lunch on a Saturday afternoon.

The place was at least half full and many of the diners were of Asian descent. That's always a good sign when you're eating at an Asian restaurant.

The choices are unbelievable. Tempura shrimp and veggies, fried shrimp, tiny clams, various beef and chicken dishes, dumplings, sushi, veggies, noodle and rice dishes, crawfish and on and on. They have various salads and some exotic things to eat, to non-Asians, like jellyfish and chicken feet. They even had steamed blue crab on our most recent lunch visit.

One thing caught my attention during this visit. Something I hadn't had since a few years ago when we visited Southeast Asia and that would be congee! It's a rice porridge usually with a chicken broth. They even offer it at business lounges at Singapore's Changi Airport and Seoul's Incheon Airport. And it was quite good at this restaurant.

If you hit this place during dinner service they feature cherry stone clams, snow crab legs, and as a special this month, lobster.

They have a nice desert table and self serve ice cream with several flavors.

The decor is rich with lots of food and it's odd because as you park in the strip mall parking lot and look at the exterior, you'd think this would be a small restaurant. But once you enter it's amazingly big inside.

The servers are always pleasant and at the ready to take your "spent" plates away.

Of all the Asian buffets we've ever sampled around the nation (and we don't go all that often), this is probably the best we've experienced and based on several meals here, I'd highly recommend it to you.
