The food on the buffet is luke warm and oily. The sushi tastes weird and the there are always flies swarming around it. Been there 4 times over the course of 3 years, thinking they'd improve. Each time I'm disappointed. I wouldn't come here unless you had no other option.

We stopped here for dinner a little after 5pm. Everything was leftover and stale. Broccoli was wilted and brown. I would expect to have fresh food when paying dinner prices. Two stars only because the fruit was fresh.

My family eats here at least twice a month, and we have nothing but good things to say about the food and service. The prices are very reasonable, especially if you choose the buffet option.

We fed our students here on an out of state field trip. The food was great and the students ate as much as they could.

I ate at this restaurant which I thought it would be good according to the reviews, but its not. The food made me sick the next day. I usually don't complain but I was not happy. The customer service was bad as well. Before they gave me my food, they weighed it which was ridiculous.

Good value, but nothing special. Sushi looked like it had been sitting out for a while. Some of the other dishes are good though; french couple and spicy chicken come to mind.

Thank randomq
