I"ve been to this restaurant many times but lately it's not as good. The food is either luke warm or cold, not hot like it should be. Some dishes remain empty and the floor needs to be cleaned more often. The floor is very sticky....More

This is a good local buffet. Lots of choices but it's the sushi I love. The Hibachi table is another treat !! Great prices and good value for what you get.

An excellent and diverse selection of Asian food at this buffet, located on a nondescript suburban commercial street, with minimal decor. Lychee fruit was a special treat. Some unusual dishes included cold spiced octopus (surprisingly good). Although we didn't try them, choices included Mongolian food...More
