So my son and I get to the restaurant at around 8:15. We go to the buffet and the first thing I notice is that many dishes are empty or nearly empty, so I ask the manager (or whoever it was at the register that night) about the lack of items on the buffet. Her response was that they don't... More

We enjoyed our lunch at Tsunami Buffet. Good food, sweet waitress, and clean bathrooms. Reasonably priced, too. We'll be back!

We've tried them all and Tsunami Buffet beats them all. Lots and lots of good selections including non-oriental foods, like BBQ chicken, fish (salmon sometimes) shrimp, etc. plenty of places to sit and enjoy. Oh, and it has a Hibachi Grille for DIY plates.

Food taste old. Plus the waitress I had was sooooo rude! When we were finished with our meal she handed us the check and waited beside the table as we are still eating and asked one of my family members if they could pay already.... she kept mumbling stuff to her coworkers while looking at us and laughing. RUDE won't... More

We stopped here for Sunday lunch with our sons and one of their young friends. We all enjoyed the great sushi selection as well as standard fare you'd find on any good Chinese buffet - chicken a dozen ways, low mein, rice, eggs rolls, etc. I especially loves a baked crab dish and the kids loved the wings and ribs....

Wide selection of food as well as sushi and stir fry station. Staff always nice, located in Belk shopping center. Staff always nice and the inside is very clean.

I stopped here for lunch - I have seen a lot of people coming out over the years - this was my first and last visit. It is a Buffet. The crab was faux crab with total fish flavor not crab. I never found melted butter for the crab either. Their General Tso's was tasteless. The "Bourbon" beef had a... More

If you enjoy sushi then this is the place for you. There is an excellent variety of sushi. My husband is not a fan of sushi but there are plenty of other delicious dishes to choose from. Make sure to bring your appetite.

Visited here with my girlfriend and a friend of ours and was overall impressed. They have a very large selection to choose from. Everything from hibachi to sushi and everything in between. I tried many things and liked them all. Nothing was stand out amazing but it's a buffet that's not to be expected.
