This is a restaurant that can't decide whether to be a churrascaria or sushi bar, a somewhat bad combination of East meets West.
All in all, food was mediocre, more about quantity than quality, which is usually the case with many a buffet style restaurant, but, unlike most buffet restaurants, the price is quite high for what you get, quality wise. Definitely a place to go if you only care about quantity, and not quality, but for >$30/person, I would venture there are better deals in Houston.
If you want GOOD sushi, go to a sushi restaurant (Matsu on FM1960 comes to mind, best New York Roll I've found), if you want GOOD churrasco, go to Fogo de Chao, pricey, but can't be beat, the salad bar alone is worth the price.

As far as all-you-can-eat buffets, this one is the best. The Chinese food is not your standard microwave dreck, sushi is good, and the churrascaria is really great. It is not cheap, but for what you get it is a good value.

I was really impressed with the new format when I went on a Friday evening. It's part Fogo de Chao and part Japanese. I was surprised how good their churascurria was generally. It's $30 for all you can eat. There was live music too.
