I arrived late in the lunch hour on a weekday, 2 pm, and was surprised to see the restaurant so busy. By Chinese buffet standards there were loads of choices. Everything I sampled was delicious. All of the meats were tender, nothing on the buffet looked like it had been sitting long. Food was constantly refilled. I had absolutely no... More

This is a little gold mine! The food is always being replenished, the buffet is endless, they offer grill foods and FRESH MADE sushi. The staff are quiet unless you engage them. The people that we go with are the same friend and the servers remember us and our drink preferences. The Grill master will fix fresh dishes with your... More

I eat here a couple times a month, it's consistently decent. The place is relatively clean and the dishes are good. They do change it up every once in a while with something different.

Buffet included sushi and Hibachi Grill including 10 or more Asian entrés on the buffet. Nice salad bar with peel and eat shrimp but they were so small it was very difficult to accomplish. My favorites included Beef/Pepper Stir Fry, Coconut Chicken, General Tso's Chicken with their fried rice. White rice was also available. Big Dessert Bar and ice cream... More

I really like eating here, my food is always hot and they make anything for you they don't already have on the bar. The only negative is we have been a few times when the waitresses get our drinks mixed up with another tables ... Gross...

I don't know how they can offer buffet sushi, crab legs and anything else you'd want for under $10 at dinner and even less at lunch, but they do. The service can be quite rude sometimes, but it's not enough to drop them to 4 stars.

We eat take out frequently. Their hot and sour soup is excellent as is the fried cream cheese wonton.
