We stopped by for lunch and the buffet was excellent. There is so much variety. Food is hot and delicious. The sushi bar was very good. The desserts were great. If you want to be satisfied, go to this buffet.

Very good, fresh food. Huge variety, everything hot and cook properly. Many stations, all kept full as they are attended too continuously by staff. Restaurant is clean and staff was friendly.

We hadn't been to this place in a long time and figured we'd give it another shot. FIrst off, it's a classic Chinese buffet with two very notable features: Possibly the best hibachi setup in the area and an amazing selection of fresh made sushi....More
