Usually I use Tripadvisor to find a great restaurant in a place I don't know. This time I just put "buffet" in the GPS and picked this restaurant. And wow! First hint I got was that well past the peak dinner hour the parking lot was packed and there was still a waiting time for a table.

This buffet takes no shortcuts. The sushi and sashimi spread is the best I've ever seen. The made to order stir fry takes no shortcuts with abundant shrimp and quality meat. And there's real ice cream for dessert. And when you're done they give you a moist wipe for your hands. Well done!!!

I've been coming here for years and have never had a less than stellar experience. The service is great. The owner is almost always there checking in on diners , ensuring they're happy, with that bright smile of hers. They are constantly refilling the bars due to the high volume of hungry folk, so the food is always fresh. The sushi is absolutely delicious..lots of variety plus all the sauces your little heart desires. The cooked food, including the hibachi, is wonderful. The price per person includes the sushi bar, cooked food, hibachi and dessert. Drinks are charged separately. Just a few tips: Arrive after 5p and try the sashimi if you like, there's a yummy chocolate fountain with marshmallows to dip during the weekend. Last but not least, go hungry to get the most bang for your buck. Enjoy!

i go here frequently and it is by far the best lunch secret in the area. im not going to repeat the other posts but dont miss the lunch special. dinner is equally good but it is more pricey. for dinner they have some additional sushi items, sashimi, huge tempura shrimp, snow crab legs and oysters on the 1/2 shell. for both dinner and lunch they are so busy that everything moves fast, gets replenished frequently and is FRESH. try the lunch and if you like it, try the expanded dinner menu.
