The best part of the world buffet was the mongolian bar, where they make your bowl to order. Apart from that, everything was bland or over seasoned, old, and pretty meh. The service was actually pretty decent for being a buffet, but really not much worth your time here.

There was a variety of food on the buffet but it was just okay. I probably would not eat there again just because there is a variety of chinese restaurants nearby.

A must for our family trip to the Cities. The food has always been fresh, hot, and rotated well. The staff is friendly and polite. Just a great meal all in all.

Shrimp tempura roll is by far the best sushi they have to offer. Easily get 10 pieces for less than $10. Nice and busy environment. Food is always good.

The sushi here is pretty good. I always get the shrimp tempura roll. The hibachi grill is good too. Well worth a visit

A very wide range of food options here. They have booths and tables. We've used it for a large group before, and it's great for a quick option for that. The ambiance is a bit retro with a mix of faded Asian art and vinyl seating. The entrance is fun for kids with a very large fish pond to entertain... More

Food was good. Our family was finishing up our dinner. Some wait staff were cleaning up tables, sweeping under booths, and helping customers with beverages and plate removal in between cleaning. Not cool. I went to the ladies room. While washing my hands, my waitress came out of the stall. Started for door, came back. Went to 1 of 2... More

I'm not going to pretend it's upscale Asian dining, but for the price it's one heck of an Asian buffet. They also have plenty of options for young children who might not want sesame chicken or dumplings (both of... More
