“Variety of Asian Food”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

Tucked into the corner of a shopping center, you wouldn't expect the vibrant decor and expansive array of food. Upon entering the restaurant, there is an elaborate wall decorated in Asian apparel, statues, and more. There is a Mongolian grill where you can fill a bowl with a wide array of noodles, vegetables, meats (like steak, crab, shrimp, calamari, chicken), and sauces and watch as chefs quickly cook your mix in a dramatic display on a large grill.

The buffet itself features more than just your standard Chinese food. You could load your plate with pad Thai, sweet sour chicken, and caramelized banana sushi all within a few steps from one another. In fact, there are all kinds of sushi available on one of those rotating displays. The staff was very friendly and even though it was a buffet, the waitresses constantly checked up on our party to make sure we were content.

For those without a taste for Asian food, there was also pizza, chicken nuggets, and french fries, as well as several vegetarian options. Wine and alcoholic beverages were also available.

Dessert consisted of chocolate ice cream, cream puffs, chocolate cake, and coconut cookies.

“Every Visit to Wmsbg”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

We eat here on every visit to Williamsburg. It keeps getting better. They expanded their sushi bar and now have Thai food selections in addition to Chinese and Mongolian. I still go to the mongolian grill first though since I like the fresh cooked veg and meat and I can pick the sauces with minimal oil. Although it's fairly busy, we've never had to wait for a table and the buffet food is refreshed frequently so you won't have to deal with grey veggies. Cost was $11.99 per person for dinner buffet.

“Unexpectedly good.”
Reviewed October 4, 2012 via mobile

We went there last might craving Chinese and got Chinese, Thai, Mongolian and Sushi. The food was good, tha atmosphere not so much but because of the stunning carvings on display we gave it a bump up. Would go again. If you leave hungry it's your own fault entirely. Lots of choices from vegetarian dishes to meat to pizza (which would appeal to kids not into Chinese). It' not high class dining but does not purport to be and it was decidedly yummy!

“Excellent value”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

Extensive choice of food, that was well cooked and tasted great. For $12 per head you simply can't complain. No need to reserve a table.
