Place with great decor for a buffet. Simple and clean. Price is comparable to other all you can eat place. Very long line to wait to get in. Morning price is cheaper and less wait than dinner time but has less selection such as no shrimp cocktails in the morning. Still great selections for every member of the family for... More

We had our dinner here and they have large selection of Japanese food from sushi ( traditional and fusion ), tempura, teriyaki, miso soup and many more. Also included in the menu is large selection of seafood from big shrimp. king crab, oyster, fish and etc. Restaurant is very crowded with Asian and western but the supply is never shorthanded....

I took my wife here for Mother's Day. She loves seafood. This was our first time here and personally my first time in a Japanese restaurant. I wasn't sure what to expect. It was very busy that day understandably. We had a 30 minute wait before being seated. It was a good sized restaurant. It is a buffet seafood restaurant.... More

Don't go here ! I have been here several times and I went today had the worst experience . I will never go to this dump again. For $81 use your hard earn money somewhere else. I had waited for oysters and a swarm of people went up and it was all gone. Waited another 10 mins or so and... More

I went here with our entire Engineering department after a work event. It's cavernous, so we were all seated together... maybe 50 of us...in one corner. The sushi was fresh, attractive, and very well prepared. The steamed fish was perfect. There were sweets, but I did not join my delighted colleagues for that. There was a good selection of Saki,...

A little pricy but there's such a huge selection. Go for lunch and it'll be cheaper for the buffet. You can eat your moneys worth in crabs legs. Most of their sushi is really yummy. There's a good one I personally love with peanut sauce on it. The green tea ice cream is delicious and very lite after eating a... More
