This place wasn't bad but it is kind of dated and is getting an unpleasant smell to it. They have added a "hibachi" section to try to offer the mongolian bbq type make-your-own-stir-fry option. Almost every dish on the buffet uses chicken so if you...More

This was a terrible place! There was no beef or pork on the buffet. One section was only American food. Hibachi station had raw meet on ice for you to send to the kitchen for cooking. No sushi. The person taking the money at the...More

Was advised not to go here, but took my chances. Food was stale and old, employee was rude and unpleasant. I would really recommend going any where but here.

Many foods are cold because there is not enough water under the pan on the steam table. Glass dividers between booths are very streaked and dirty, food left on walls and seats. Food OK, prices very high.

The food is past its prime and the furnishings are very worn. Cleanliness is not on the menu we tried it a couple times and there was no improvement.

The food was ok, but the service was horrible. Barely had my name written on tick and she was pulling it away from me. They didn't greet as I walked in, just assumed what I wanted. Have only been here once in over a year...More

I once loved this place and the happy smiling girl who greeted us when we walked in is gone. Now all they have is grumpy people who appear to speak very little English and main person in charge is an Asian woman with a major...More
