The buffet offers soup and unexciting sushi. Aside from that, it's a choice among high fat and high carbohydrate items, in the main. The price is not cheap. This is a good place to bring people who value quantity over quality.

This restaurant is not disability friendly. I had asked a waitress if my family could be seated closer to the bar as my Grandma who is seventy-nine can barely walk and my sister suffers from M.E. and she also has a hard time getting around....More

nice little buffet place that could use some cosmetic work, but had very good food and a huge variety in the choices that they offered including a chocolate fountain! It was clean and the service was very good.

We hadn't been here for a year and had our fingers crossed hoping it hadn't changed. It hasn't. They still have the best sushi bar anywhere around and much more. They have a huge and delicious variety of Asian dishes plus plenty for those who...More

Don’t get me wrong, the food is good. If you’re a seafood person, this should be a 6 out of five. Sushi, crab, squid, and on and on. I don’t happen to be, so it’s just good. I could use another Chinese beef dish choice...More

Just ate there last night, and left very happy. We've been going there at least once a month for the last couple of years, and it quickly became my favorite. I'm a big sushi/sashimi fan, and they have both and they are made fresh. They...More

Dinner for an adult is $14.99. They consider a 13 year old an adult for some reason. After that the price goes down to $11.99 for 12 and under until you get to 9 year olds and they're only $8.99 so it's not a cheap meal... More
