So, after driving 5 hours from AZ my family and I were starving. We checked in our hotel and searched for seafood (I’m a Pescatarian). We found Kobe buffet and the pictures looked awesome. It was literally 7 minutes from our hotel (Ayres Suites). We...pulled up & my husband and step father noticed their weren’t any cars and said we shouldn’t eat there. I was so hungry and I had seen crab legs, so I convinced them to go in. There was sushi, crab, crawfish, fries, dumplings, shrimp, etc. I grabbed a plate of crab and some butter from a pump. This literally was thee worst decision EVER! The crab had no flavor, the butter tasted like oil & the fries weren’t cooked. EVERYTHING we ate was cold & the menu was so dirty I immediately stopped eating and decided it was time to go before we got sick. Of course we let the manager know of our dissatisfaction. His excuse was we came at the end of lunch so whatever was out was what was left. Why not tell us that before we paid 100$ for our family to eat here? He said he would give a “discount” they didn’t. RUN!! DO NOT EAT HERE! Eating out the trash would be a safer choice.More

The food was really old, cold, greasy, and the place was not in a good condition. The $50 that was spent there was like pouring money down a drain. I’d recommend that you rather eat take out from another place than eat here.

First visit here on a Friday night and it looked like it was closed when we rolled up. When we went in there were a fair number of families there but it looked a little shabby. We were seated on a worn and torn bench,...so asked to move to a table with chairs. Apart from this, I have to say the restaurant was very clean - the staff were sweeping and polishing any spills. The buffet offered a good variety of Asian themed food. The made-to-order noodle soup was delicious, as was the crab legs and the custom-made stir fry. However the sushi was disappointing to say the least - little variety and the rice was dry. I would probably not go for dinner again, but perhaps lunch when it is less expensive.More

So I was having a hankering for some Asian food. Ended up here mostly out of curiosity. From the outside, it looks like it's closed but you walk inside and it's a nice surprise. So, it's all you can eat. You have a choice of...fresh fruits, salads, soups, meats, fish, sushi, a teppan grill (which I'm sorry I missed) and desserts. The food choices were good for me. I filled my plate several time and paced myself. My husband did as well. And even though he says he doesn't like Asian food, by the way he stuffed his face, you wouldn't have known that. I left full and happy.More

I was disappointed as I have eaten at several Asian buffets that are much better. Much of what I ate was cold. The sushi was very limited and not that good. The best for me was the fried shrimp and the green beans. I will...not be back.More

They have quite a good selection for their price. One of the best affordable asian buffets in the area. They are still worth every visit. 👍🏻

We have eaten here a few times and the food is ok, nothing special. Last Sunday night we had dinner there and tried to use a $2 off coupon for the two of us reducing the bill by $4. We presented the coupon to the...server who adjusted the bill accordingly. When we paid the bill at the register the man took our money, no problem. As we were walking out to the car, the same man ran after us and demanded that we pay him the $4 that was deducted from the coupon. We tried to explain that we used the coupon but he wanted no part of it and spoke to us in a raised nasty voice in a mixture of English and Chinese. We paid him and left. We To make things worse, I got sick to my stomach later that night from the food. We will never go back to that restaurant.More

I have been to many "asian" type buffets ... this is one of the better ones. It is a buffet, so you will not have a reliable waitress/waiter. Other than that .. the food is good. I have been here a half dozen of times...now. I will be going back.More
