“Didnt meet the hype...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2012

I had several friends recommend this place, so the wife and I finally had an opportunity to visit this week.
Buffet was..................ehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
I would have loved to have more noodles, but the bowl is only so big. First timers BEWARE..be careful with the spices at the end of the buffet. They are STRONG

I am a meat and potatoes kind of guy, and didnt quite understand how they cook all the food the same length of time no matter what it is. Shrimp, steak, potatoes, crab, vegetables....all cooked the same time. Thats much different than how a hibachi place might cook. Things need different times on the grill.
Not bad for a one time thing.... I wont be back, but if its your thing, feel free to go right ahead :)

“Not your best buffet”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2012

This restaurant is quite unusual in its setup. Fill your bowl and head for the hugh, round, grill, with very entertaining chefs. My main complaint was the grill. I would guess that any number, 12 or more could be cooking at the same time. When each portion is finished they scrape anything left into the center, waste bin. For the next group of diners, they spray some type of oil on the grill to prevent sticking, which left a strange aftertaste. Bowls of rice, tortillas and lettace are provided.
