“New & Big -”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

We were surprised that it was not busier then it was being a Saturday night. One of the 1st things we noticed was a hand written sign saying that the wait staff works for tips. We really thought that looked so inappropriate.

We paid for our dinner and was politely seated and our waiter was promptly there. Asked us if this was our 1st time here and we said yes. He then proceeded to point out the different tables of food as well as the Hibachi area.

Was pleasantly surprised with the amount of food as well as the Hibachi area and being able to pick out your own ingredients to be fried up. We were quite pleased with our meal as well as our waiter. The only thing we did not like was the tacky sign saying the wait staff works for tips.

“It will be your new favorite local Chinese buffet!”
Reviewed April 2, 2013 via mobile

Incredible value, I've never seen a Chinese buffet price this low around here and the lunch price even includes a drink. Hibochi style build your own dish included. There's nothing better than a hot fresh personally grilled meal. It was incredibly clean even the waitstaff was well put together with nice clean uniforms and professionalism. Plenty of choices and most were spot on delicious hot and fresh. My family loves this new joint... still can't believe the Hibochi grill is included what an impressive addition. It will only get better as it's open longer. We were waiting for it for months and couldn't be happier!

“New...still needs work.”
Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

The place was very big and cafeteria like. My husband and I witnessed on TWO different occasions...angry looking staff putting food that was dropped onto counter, back into serving trays-yuck!!! Total health code violation! Salad bar was dismal. Sign on door saying "Customers must tip waitstaff 10%". Our server never even came to take our used plates. This place was nothing special. Maybe it will get better in time? What a dissapointment. The place down the road by Pierces (Wok King) is way better (more authentic).
