Heard good things about this restaurant, so we went there early. Seated but not given anything to drink. Not given any menus, but was verbally instructed how get food. Selection was good, but unless you cook, you may not know what goes with what and end up with an odd plate of various flavors. The sauces were not tasty at all, pretty bland. Food was over cooked on the grill and meat became dry. Drink was not included with buffet price of $14.99. If you want stir-fry, make it yourself at home. I would not go there again.

This place costs 26.99 per person for dinner. They are supposed to tell you upon "instruction", but our group was never told. Not a fun night out with family..perhaps a younger crowd, but it was also very loud inside, between music and the grill area where they toss the bowls around. Also reviewed elsewhere and that review was removed. ;(

The food is mediocre, the prices are high, and when they spill the meal on you, they refuse to apologize. Rude and horrible place.

This is a very nice place to hang out. Great happy hour and appetizers. You can eat inside or outside (nice fire pit in the evening). Great location. We ended up trying the, I guess what can only be described as a mongolian bbq type grill, dinner. We had a buy one get the second half-off, which would be $26.99 for the full price, and about $13.00 for the second price. I think that it is all wrong. Save your money - and go eat at the Chart House or the high end buffet at one of the hotels - ANYWHERE. There are so many problems here, and we discovered them after we ate - and didn't feel good. You're better off going where a chef will prepare your food. Listen, there is raw chicken. If you take the raw chicken to the grill, they will put it on the grill and begin to maneuver the food with the spatula. That same spatula, which has now touched raw chicken, will touch someone else's vegetables. Houston - we have a problem here. Now, you've had your meal, your full (an in our case, not feelin' so well), and you feel like you've been pick-pocketed. You just paid $27.00 for a bowl of grilled veggies, chicken and whatever other meats are sitting out there. Okay - it's all you can eat, but we couldn't eat anymore. Doesn't even include dessert or a beverage - DOUBLE-TRIPLE rip off. Okay, so the guy grilling can dazzle you with his spatula flipping, bowl tossing antics - (I wasn't impressed - maybe the kiddies will be - but who would pay $27.00 for your kid to eat carrots and celery grilled on a cross-contaminated spatula?). Cook the chicken before it goes to the grill, Fire and Ice; Cook it all. You have these people bamboozled. Charge by the bowl - like dim sum. And pre-cook that meat.

We really enjoyed the outside environment of this restaurant. The fire pits, the bar and the sports on the TVs was great. We only ordered appetizers the night we were there and they were very average. The all-you-can-eat, build-your-own dish is a great idea, but not for the $27 per plate price for everyone. I don't think that the women in our party could eat $15 worth of food, never mind $27. They boys, yes, but not worth it for a family - sorry.
