This fairly new place is the brainchild of one of the sons of the owner of its Annandale competitor, Il Mee. In this case, son has far outshined his father. To begin with, the atmosphere is stunning. They clearly spent a ton of money on a splashy, modern build out...they spared little, if any expense. What results is a clean, fresh, modern feeling that is very inviting and seems almost too upscale for a buffet place. The service is warm and welcoming. Remember, there is Korean BBQ available in abundance and the waitresses, thus, also act as chef. The variety of food on the buffet is amazing...from interesting, well-executed, very fresh sushi to many hot entrees....to a stunning variety of meats for the Korean BBQ at your table. Everything is fresh and delicious. Is the sushi quite as good as you get at a top-flight sushi bar at a per-piece price? No....but darned close. The five of us stuffed ourselves beyond all sensibility and enjoyed every last bite. There was something for everybody. Buffets are usually chock full of sub-standard fare....this is FAR from the case here. We have tried Il Mee, Hebeen and others and this is BY FAR THE BEST by leaps and bounds. Add to this a wine list with VERY reasonable prices ($34.00 for a bottle of Sonoma Cutrer Chardonnay that sells at Safeway for $22.00) and this is a hands down winner of a choice. And while $26.95 may sound expensive for a buffet experience...it is actually a give-away bargain for the quality and freshness of the food and the professionalism of the service here. We drove from Oakton and were not the slightest bit disappointed. No need for a trip to Annandale anytime soon.
