I got a brochure in the mail with 20% off, so we decided to give it a try. The dining room is huge, with food table all along the sides. Even taking only one tablespoon of something to sample it, there's no way you could do it... so many dishes... Mongolian BBQ, sushi (mostly just cut rolls), all sorts of cooked dishes with seafood and chicken and beef, mussels on a half shell, a delightful crab mixture served in the shell, and lots more. The dessert table has fresh fruit and 4 different kinds of ice cream. Skip the chocolate sauce... it tastes waxy! The service was quite attentive for a late lunch, so overall, we were pleased.

This place is the type of Asian buffet that is spreading all over Los Angeles. This location in West Los Angeles is part of a chain including Burbank, Encino, and Long Beach.

The large interior is pleasant with dark wood tables and chairs. It has one of the longest serving lines I have seen and it is difficult to get to the middle without having your plate full. The quality of the food is a bit better than most of these places.

It has the usual Chinese, Japanese, and Korean dishes including barbecued meat, fish, chicken broccoli, dumplings, and kimchi as well as salads, various vegetable dishes, and fruit. The ice cream flavors include red bean and green tea.

They have a very good selection of seafood, meat, salads, sushi and sashimi. My kids loved their food and of course the rotating chocolate tower to make their own chocolate-covered strawberry. I would definitely expect them to expand their sushi & sashimi selections. However, it is definitely a place worth recommending.

Wide variety of food. Tables very close together. They had meats, seafood, crab legs. Food taste was average. Like any other buffet, Good buffet for the price. Staff was not very friendly. Went on a weeknight. Not very crowded but was difficult to find wait staff.

Very wide selection but everything tasted mediocre, at best. If you keep your expectations really low, you might like this place. If all you want to do is consume thousands of calories, knock yourself out, but if you're looking for something tasty, keep looking.
