“Not like it was, Don't even think about it.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2012

Sure, it used to be a decent buffet, albeit with an attitude, they never were very kid friendly, but now the food is bad enough, you are better off to pay and leave, I wouldn't eat the food.

“Recent changes-very disappointing!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2011

We use to go weekly for the buffet from out of town and loved it. Something within the several months has totally changed the food selection. Now offering a special price but many items were removed from buffet..we were so disappointed on our last visit and it just may be the last unless we hear it gets back to original menu......

“Once the best buffet in town, now best avoided!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2011

As often happens with Chinese buffets, the Hokkaido has new ownership. The immediate result has been a big cut in prices and a disturbing plummet in the quality of the food. I am even reluctant to use the word 'quality' in the context of the food here. If that's not bad enough, there are numerous disturbing reports on this restaurant on the Virginia Department of Health website. The nearby Beijing buffet is smaller and doesn't look like much from outside, but the food is substantially better - or I recommend trying one of the better Chinese restaurants in town - Chinese Kitchen, China Inn
